Family Therapy and Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Bristol
Most young people grow up dreaming of having a perfect family one day. Absolute perfection is unattainable, of course, but a lot of folks go on to enjoy a pretty nice family life all the same. Others are not so lucky, alas. For them, turmoil and upset seem to be everyday events.
The Unhealthy Home
It’s impossible to find solutions for anything until you can first identify the root cause of any problem(s). It’s times like these where a little third party intervention can prove to be beneficial. A family therapist and family counseling sessions can uncover problems that the victims just couldn’t see for themselves. Kids can hate their parents and their parents loathe the behaviors and attitudes of their kids. Disharmony becomes a part of everyday life.
Living under a roof of continual discontent is bad for the physical and mental health of all its occupants. Sometimes, in some cases, therapy is the only way out.
The Beginning of the End
No one should have to put up with persistent disharmony in the home. It’s not always the fault of the children or their parents. The blame game can never be a part of any solution. Sometimes things just grow out of nothing, often triggered by some small event that everyone has long since forgotten about. A family can run into conflicts because of all kinds of physical, emotional or mental causes, some of which include the following:
- Alcohol and drug addictions
- ADHD (in adults as well as young children)
- Unruly adolescents
- Depression / Discontentment / Sadness / Misery, etc.
- Parents arguing / Parents not talking / Marriage breakups
- Eating disorders (especially in teens)
These are just a handful of the many causes that can initiate major chronic upsets in homes across the state. Bristol family therapy has helped lots of families overcome their problems and find new peace.
