What Our Clients Say
HOW IT WORKS
How does Systemic Family Therapy work?
Systemic family therapists do not make judgments or take sides. They offer support and guidance to help families see their problems differently and to work together on changes that might be useful. They look at people’s strengths, how these could be used to overcome difficulties and they sometimes look at how people view their problems and if there are other perspectives that might be helpful.
When you arrive, you meet the therapist talk with them and they will listen to everyone there. The family and therapist sometimes share ideas by drawing or writing things down. Towards the end of the meeting, the therapist will usually ask to hear the views and feelings of everyone in the room and conclude with an action plan. Sometimes this plan includes homework between sessions.
Sessions vary and the space between the meetings is agreed with you. The time can range from weekly to monthly appointments.
