Systemic Family Therapy, also known as Couple or Family Therapy, is a means of intervention that attempts to understand and address human beings pain and distress within the context in which it occurs i.e. the family or relationship environment. It is less interested in pathology and more interested in the way in which people understand and relate to one another.
This therapeutic approach does not isolate an individual, but rather it takes account of the family as an organic whole, whatever form that family group might take. Clients are facilitated to make sense of their lives and difficulties in the context of their family formation and functioning. This approach allows us to work with families which most other modalities or services do not facilitate.
