In marriage counselling, an individual has the ability to choose between two different classes of therapy. That is, an individual has the choices of going through either the family or couple therapy or the one on one kind of therapy depending on the type of services that he or she will desire. The therapies are important to an individual in that he or she will be able to overcome the marriage situation no matter the class of therapy that he or she will take. Some may prefer to start with the individual therapy then advance to the family therapy so that he or she can find a solution to the marriage problem. When individuals in a relationship wants to get out of their emotional and communication issues, they will need to go through the marriage counselling process which help them also solve the other issues that may have existed in the relationship. After the counselling, the therapist will have to guide the spouses as well as showing them a proper way of maintaining the bond that existed before.
For the family therapy, the couples are allowed to come to the sessions simultaneously so that they can get guidance as well as lessons from the other individuals. The married individuals will be able to get some positive thoughts from the therapist as well as the other individuals. Through the family therapy session, it will be possible for the couples to get develop a better picture of their lives at the same time avoiding the things that may trigger the start of the marriage problems. Relating to the situations that other individuals are going through in the family therapy session will be able to help them as they will also support each other and get some positive teachings as well. An individual will have an opportunity to have a better view of the marriage situation.
For those who have a financial problem, they will still get the therapy services since it will be conducted in a group of which it will be cheaper. An advantage of the family or group therapy is that the therapist will be able to give all the people present at the session some guidance and professional advice that will help them in overcoming their marriage situations without discriminating those with financial problems. The group therapy or the couple therapy will enhance speaking freely of the couples who are hesitant in giving out their experiences since they will adjust after seeing other doing so freely. Individual therapy is essential to individuals who have a problem in speaking out in a group of people or to a total stranger. With the therapist only, an individual will be able to speak out all that has been crumbling inside.
