Some sessions will involve the entire family while others may not due to the specific needs of the family and the direction the sessions take. Some families who attend family counselling struggle with relationship conflicts, mental health, parenting roles, differences, acceptance, expectations, roles, rules, respect, emotional and physical barriers, stress, grief, appreciation, communication, anger, coping skills, support and understanding. The purpose of family counselling is to help families focus on their strengths and overcome their struggles and problems and to help them learn new ways to manage their life more effectively.
