Couples therapy helps resolve the difficulties present in the relationship between two partners.
It is particularly recommended when there are relational difficulties that lead to constant dissatisfactions and /or conflicts. Each partner will be expected to honestly examine their own interaction and communication styles, identify and express their own feelings, and make an attempt at experimenting alternative methods of communicating and interacting.
Family therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the family system and the relationships that are created within it.
It aims at helping family members resolve the hardships and sufferings of the entire family unit or just one of its members. In fact, when a person feels and experiences discomfort, especially if it is a child or a teenager, the suffering (psychosomatic, behavioral or psychological) inevitably affects the whole family system.
