About Family Therapy

Who can benefit from undertaking Family and Systemic Psychotherapy?

Everyone, at some point in life, has difficulties in their relationships; they may struggle to lead their lives according to their values and goals or they may get stuck in unhelpful or unhealthy patterns of behaviour.

Family and Systemic psychotherapists can help these individuals, couples and families to reflect on their patterns of behaviour and relationships, to improve communication; to realign themselves with their goals and values in life; and to develop strategies and coping skills to help move their lives in the direction that is most meaningful to them.

There is evidence that Family and Systemic Psychotherapy can be effective with a number of emotional and mental health issues as described in the Research and Evidence-Based Practice section.
