Family counselling allows for patterns of communication and unresolved conflict to be explored in a way that does not blame one single individual. A systems approach is taken, meaning families are considered as one unit and the way in which members of the family relate to one another is seen as a process rather than the fault of any one person. Patterns in verbal and nonverbal communication are brought into awareness and altered to make way for greater mutual understanding, connection, and cohesiveness.
Therapists help family members to develop skills to maintain stronger bonds even after termination of therapy, so that progress can be carried forward into the future. Existing strengths can be built upon and issues and barriers can be resolved while fully supported by an empathic and responsive counsellor.
