What is Family Relationship Counselling?

Family counselling is a form of psychological counselling to help members of a family to build stronger relationships, have effective communication and to understand each other afresh. These sessions are guided by trained counsellors and psychotherapists.

The issues in a family can start off with small day-to-day life problems and may go on to become bigger concerns. This may especially happen when there’s a teenager in the house and the parents are not getting a guideline on how to have a conversation with their teenager, or when parents have hard time adjusting to the teenager’s changed behaviour.

The goal in family counselling is to identify the issues that occur in family, which could be emotional, behavioural or other, and to address these issues in a correct way.

There are different types of family counselling. These are mainly important for the counsellors so that they know what technique to use while planning the goal and treatment plan for the family. Some of the family counselling types are structural family therapy, strategic family therapy, relationship counselling, supportive family therapy, family therapy for psychoeducation etc.

The techniques of counselling depend completely on the issues presented by the family members. Once the counsellor understands what the issues are and where they coming from, then they can make a plan on how to move forward. For this, each and every family member needs to be as transparent as possible while interacting with the counsellor.

The common types of family therapy techniques are

  • Behavioural techniques: This is focused on observing the unhelpful behaviours of family members, giving them an insight about it and helping them to unlearn these behaviours.
  • Structural technique: This helps the family members with forming boundaries and creating new, healthy boundaries with one another.
  • Narrative technique: This helps the individuals in the family to have their own experience.
  • Strategic technique: This is more of a direct technique, where the counsellor works directly on the problem.
