Methodology

Systemic Therapy and Counselling

"Systemic Psychotherapy is an independent method availing of a variety of methods and application fields. Originally developed in family therapy, systemic psychotherapy is now used with individuals, couples, families and groups. Systemic Psychotherapy observes the individuals in their social networks and views symptoms as inadequate attempts to find solutions in established relationships. The goal of interventions is to identify patterns, activate resources and expand perspectives and options of behaviour in a solution oriented mindset. Which system is seen as relevant, depends on the symptoms and the  people involved."
