What happens during a family therapy session?
The therapist might invite you to bring a family member or someone close to you to your first session. Individual sessions might be suggested to supplement family meetings. The therapist aims to adopt a non-blaming approach and will not take sides. She will engage each family member to share their understanding and views of each other. By giving everyone an opportunity to contribute and discuss, family therapy will enable family members to explore ways forward as a unit.
How many sessions are needed?
Family therapy generally need around six to 20 sessions for families to realise their strengths and find ways forward. For families and loved ones who are experiencing more complex difficulties however, further sessions may be needed. The time interval between each session depends on the problems being addressed, the stage of treatment and the needs of family members. We will mutually agree and collaborate the approach used and the number of sessions.
I interviewed Evonne Lek who is a dedicated family therapist who left public service so as to better serve her clients. 1) What do you do? I am a family therapist, more specifically a systemic psychotherapist. I help couples, families, parents and individuals resolve their relationship issues.
Many couples I see get caught up in conflict, but most do not realise that differences in how they are attached to one another play a big part in these conflicts. In psychology we call these different types of 'attachment styles'.
