A Guide on Family Counselling
Understanding Family Counselling
Familial therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and breaking family patterns that lead to a behaviour disorder or mental disease. Family therapy entails meetings with the entire family to discuss and solve problems. Some of these sessions may be held in a group setting, in pairs, or one-on-one. In family therapy, the web of interpersonal interactions is explored, and communication within the family is ideally enhanced.
There can be a variety of problems when it comes to your family. When one family member has a crisis or disappointment, the rest of the family takes the impact, sometimes assisting and sometimes hindering.
Every family is unique, and the ups and downs of family life have a significant impact on children and teenagers. Children will have the strength to grow and develop as a result of the love and support they receive from their parents and relatives. However, all families face challenges, and some children and teenagers may struggle to get along with their parents or siblings.
This might be due to a number of factors, including:
- Various persons clashes and arguments over how to do things
- Jealousy or rivalry between brothers and sisters are common.
- Parents quarrelling
- Separation or divorce
- Step-parents or step-brothers and sisters are new additions to the family.
- A parent or relative who suffers from mental illness, disability, or sickness
- An alcoholic or drug-addicted parent or relative
- Stresses caused by unemployment, financial difficulties, or a lack of housing.
- Domestic violence is a serious problem.
- Differences in culture or generation
- Bereavement’s Consequences
- Neglect or abuse
Even if no one has informed them, children and teenagers frequently believe that family troubles are their responsibility. Changes in the family may unsettle and disturb youngsters, making them feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. They may be irritated, worried, or despondent. These emotions can have a negative impact on other aspects of their lives, such as school and friendships.
Types of Family Counseling
- There are a variety of family counselling approaches that have been proved to be effective under the umbrella of family therapy. The most common forms of therapy and family counselling are as follows:
- Structural therapy
- Strategic therapy
- Systemic therapy
- Narrative therapy
- Transgenerational therapy
- Communication theory
- Relationship/Marriage Counseling
Structural Family Therapy (SFT)
The goal of structural family therapy is to learn how members of the group interact with their spouses, parents, children, and other family members. It’s essentially a deconstruction of the “identity matrix.” Recognizing the unit’s structure—hierarchies, sub-relationships, and boundaries—can aid in the family’s strengthening. Once the framework is in place, the counsellors may begin to see where adjustments can be made and what sorts of family counselling services can be used to assist the family reorganise in a good way.
Systemic Family Therapy (SFT)
The focus of systemic family therapy is on belief systems. The family dynamic is influenced by family members’ views and socio-cultural ideas. A systemic family therapist supports family level remedies rather than seeing something as an individual’s problem since the larger cultural environment can influence behavioural patterns. The five components of systemic treatment are as follows:
- Taking apart the problem
- Pattern recognition and feedback loops
- Beliefs and justifications
- Attachments and emotions
- Contextual considerations
Narrative Family Therapy
Narrative family therapy presumes that everyone is a storyteller, with their own unique take on how things are. Personal experiences create personal tales over time, and individuals assign meaning to these stories—in the end, they define a person’s identity. Narrative therapy is a form of family counselling that aids in the separation of the individual from the problem. It encourages individuals to depend on their own abilities to look at situations objectively rather than through the prism of the storey they’ve created.
It is frequently necessary to first examine the family’s transgenerational history in order to comprehend difficulties inside the family. This process helps the therapist and patient comprehend prior issues, allowing them to forecast future conflict. If the family has reacted to difficulties in the past in a specific way, it might help anticipate future trouble. It’s a form of family counselling that takes into account how generational emotions differ. This can include, for example, how children behave differently than their parents or how couples of various generations react differently.
In today’s household, communication must be prioritised. This should come as no surprise, given how open communication is so important in dispute resolution. This form of therapy works through improving a family’s communication abilities, as well as creating new skills, methods, and perspectives that help them handle difficulties.
This method of family counselling enables people with mental illnesses to have a better understanding of their situation. The therapist may then provide them strategies to help them manage their symptoms, moderate their behaviour, and operate better within the family unit. The family is also provided the same skills for dealing with their loved one who has a mental condition. People who have been diagnosed with mental health issues (or life-threatening/terminal diseases) require a better understanding of their situation as well as a robust support system.
Even little day-to-day issues and pressures may wreak havoc on relationships. Communication, cultural differences, mental health, adultery, sexual intimacy, financial problems, emotional distance, and a general lack of trust are some of the concerns that relationship counselling may address. When a couple agrees to come together and address one or more of these difficulties, they may start looking for the proper therapist to help them move ahead and enhance their relationship.

“I am a working professional and it’s tough to attend physio sessions regularly. After suffering from a backache for around three years, my friend suggested that I try Mantra Care for their physiotherapy services. I was able to get completely back pain relief, after taking a completely online course. Thanks to my PT at MantraCare for this, who conducted sessions whenever I needed them.”

Frequently Ask Questions
Therapists utilise approaches such as marital and family therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, couples therapy, and solution-focused family therapy in family counselling for addiction. Because of the diversity of origins, each family’s therapy will be unique.
Answer the following questions if you’re not sure if family counselling is suitable for you. If you answered yes to any of these questions, family counselling may be a suitable option for you:
- Has your health (mental or physical) been harmed as a result of a family member’s use?
- Has a member of your family continued to use it after you and others begged them to stop?
- Do you want to understand how to respond to your loved one’s inappropriate behaviour?
- Have you or a member of your family tried alternative treatment options without success?
- Do you think there are any familial issues that are causing the addiction?
While there are many different approaches to family counselling, they all entail the therapist working with your entire family as a unit, as well as subgroups and individuals. It’s generally only for a brief time. The workshops will teach you how to strengthen your bonds and build strategies to help you get through difficult times together.
Among its numerous advantages are:
- Mental and physical well-being for the entire family
- Communication has improved.
- Improved knowledge of enabling behaviours
- Other family members’ drug abuse prevention
- Awareness of requirements and behaviours has improved.
