Find a healthy way to resolve family conflict

Professor Sarah Niblock, CEO of the UK Council for Psychotherapy, addresses discord in families, and how therapy - rather than focusing only on the problems - provides resolution through healthier communication

Modern family life can feel like a pressure cooker ready to explode. Work-life imbalances, caring responsibilities and teenage tantrums can make family and leisure time as stressful as our day jobs - and may have a serious impact on our emotional and mental states.

Family therapy - or to give it its full title, family and systemic psychotherapy - helps people in close relationships help each other. It enables family members, couples and those who care about each other to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on strengths and make useful changes in their relationships and lives.

We need to talk about this!

Individuals can also find family therapy beneficial as an opportunity to reflect on important relationships and find ways forward. Research shows that family therapy is useful for children, young people and adults experiencing a wide range of difficulties. Some UKCP therapists work with extended families, from grandparents to family pets!
