All About Therapy

Systemic therapy seeks to understand the individual in relationships with others, rather than in isolation. It seeks to identify deeply entrenched unhelpful patterns within an individual's relationships and between family members rather than seeing problems located within an individual. All people are embedded in their context and are part of a larger unit or system, such as, a couple, a family, or an organisation.

During the therapeutic process I explore the clients' views and relationships in order to understand the problems they are experiencing. This approach helps family members to communicate better with each other. It can help families to change, develop and resolve conflict.

Questions

You Ask - I Answer

Have a question you’d like to ask? We are committed to giving clients the best care and experience we can. There’s no such thing as a bad question when it comes to mental health. Check out the answers to the FAQs below, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any additional questions.

 

How long will it take before I see any benefits?

Being able to share your problems and worries with a therapist can help you better manage some of pressures you may be  experiencing and that can  already lead to some sense of relief after the first session. The intervals between sessions are from one to two weeks initially depending on the presented problems and needs of the family members. Decisions over these matters are negotiated collaboratively with all family members present.
Although it is hard to estimate and it differs widely, the average length of family therapy treatment ranges between 6 – 20 sessions.

Do you offer sliding scale rates?

I do not offer sliding scale rates but I have a limited number of sessions each month on which I am able to offer a discount.

How long does each therapy session take?

An individual therapy session usually lasts for 50 minutes and a couple and family session for 75 minutes.
