Relationship Counselling

Family counselling may help to promote better relationships and understanding within a family. It may be incident specific, as for example family counselling during a divorce, or the approaching death of a family member.

The therapist often helps the family reflect on better ways of communicating with each other Family counselling may in part be instruction and encouragement. In fact, family counselling often teaches family members new and more positive ways to communicate to replace old, negative communication patterns.
