Relationship counselling requires clearly defined and often conflicting goals, at least initially (who wants what). Resolution of such goals requires a focus on commonalities rather than differences, as most couples/families tend to do, which is often not helpful. I prefer to work individually first before conjoint sessions. This is to work out each person’s own “stuff” before coming together for group work.

I ask scaling questions so that as the session progresses, you may notice the change within you, not just because you think so, but because you KNOW so.
