What is Family & Systemic Psychotherapy?
Systemic and Family Therapy is a treatment approach that can enable people in relationships (systems) to create and develop useful changes in therapy together.
It enables family members, couples and others who care about each other to express and explore their thoughts and emotions safely, to understand each other's experiences and views, and appreciate each other's needs. I aim to recognise and build on any strengths and work in partnership to help facilitate change. Individuals can also find systemic therapy useful as an opportunity to reflect on important relationships and/or significant life events and explore how these may organise or inform a new way forward.
Research shows that Systemic Family Therapy is useful for children, families, parents, carers, young people, couples and adults experiencing a very wide range of difficulties and experiences. See Nice guidelines and Association of Family Therapy websites.
