Family Therapy & Counselling

Family therapy and counselling can be helpful for families in Singapore for a variety of reasons. Family is an important source of support, encouragement, and love but sometimes that might not be the case for some of us. Family members can sometimes experience interpersonal difficulties and tensions with each other which can create a lot of stress within the family unit. Family therapy and counselling can be a platform through which these interpersonal difficulties can be managed or resolved. It can be helpful to know that a family unit also undergoes numerous changes as it progresses through different stages in its family life cycle. At different stages, the stressors faced by the family can vary. For instance, the challenges faced by a family with young children will look very different from the challenges faced by a family with teenagers, or at the stage where the children have grown up and are leaving home to start lives of their own. Regardless of the types of difficulties families face, family therapy can help families navigate these stressful times together improves the emotional and mental wellbeing of the family members while also strengthening the bonds within the family unit.

Some families in Singapore also go through unique challenges and can benefit from additional help. For instance, families with a child with special needs or families who are caring for an elderly family member with health conditions like dementia may experience ongoing stress and feelings of burnout. It might be helpful for these families to be supported by our counsellors and therapists who can equip each family member with skills to better cope with these stressors and with the trying situation at home.
