Systemic Family or Couple therapy

What is Systemic Therapy?

Who is Systemic therapy for?

Systemic therapy is for anyone wanting to:

  • aim for living life better in the moment with others & to be able to feel joy in close relationships.

Systemic therapy is for anyone whose relationship:

  • is going through a rough patch
  • can be helped by improved communication.

What does Systemic therapy help with?

Research evidence shows that therapy can help many people with different difficulties as outlined above.

What happens in systemic therapy sessions?

Our Clinical Psychologist offering systemic therapy aims to help build good safe  relationships in your life  with improved communication.

Aim to be able to express your feelings and needs with those close to you and have a mutually supportive relationship, with your therapist’s help.

As Clinical Psychologists are trained in other therapies too, the therapy offered can be agreed with you after the getting-to-know-you stage.

For example, you may agree on a course of Systemic therapy alone or with another therapy approach to follow, to help you reach your life goals (when you are ready for that).

Do you need a diagnosis to have systemic therapy?

No, you don’t need to have any diagnosis. Many people have found having systemic (couple or family) therapy  life-changing.
