The equilibrium of a family system can be altered by changes or stressors. Life changes and stressors such as financial loss, illness, new baby, infidelity, grief and trauma can influence the balance. Stressors can affect communication, connection and being able to enjoy relationships with one another.
At times, individual members’ experiences can influence the whole system. Couples and family therapy can help resolve conflicts, improve communication and bring families and couples a more profound connection with each other. Therapy can help you to recognize your role in the family system and your influence on any conflicts. It can also build a deeper intimacy and understanding of oneself and other family members. Therapeutic processes can help improve your sex life and overall enjoyment of life.
