Counselling can bridge gaps that can develop within families! A Counsellor is detached from the emotions that exist and can encourage dialogue in a non-judgemental way. Achievable goals can be set for group members to work towards. Each family member is given a voice to be heard and listened to. Individual needs are explored and respected. Change can happen with the help of the counsellor.
As children become adolescents the family dynamics change and parents have to learn to compromise. Parents can find it hard to gradually change from having a child/adult relationship to an adult/adult relationship with their children. Counselling helps to learn new ways of approaching difficult issues and both parties can benefit a great deal.
