Family counseling is a type of counseling that involves the entire family, rather than an individual or a couple. It is usually the nuclear family, with a husband, a wife, the children. Nearly every family has some sort of dysfunction, and therefore nearly every family can benefit from family counseling. Even if there really is only one member who has a serious problem, all members can benefit from counseling to learn how to best support this individual. Non-traditional families, such as single parent families, families with adopted or foster children, blended families or families involving same sex couples, can all benefit from family counseling.

Losing someone is extremely difficult for almost anyone, especially the loss of a parent, spouse or child. Life becomes miserable without learning the coping mechanism to handle grief.
Many cultures have built in traditions and systems for managing misery. These systems allow an individual to mourn a loss, integrate the loss into his or her life, accept the loss, and move forward. Those who did not grow up in such a culture, or for whom the cultural system is not effective, may be caught up in a cycle of grief. Grief counseling can help an individual break that cycle and move on with his or her life.
In grief counseling, we
- Help the client complete a healthy grief cycle and deal with other pathologies, such as crippling anxiety or depression, which may have been triggered by the grieving event.
- see that the person has accepted the loss and understand that life will continue without the beloved person-.
Group counseling can be effective for people who are not comfortable in a one-on-one setting, who have social anxiety issues etc. it helps one to feel comfortable when they know that they are not the only one to have the problem.
