Family & Systemic Therapy

Over the course of your lifetime, you might run into issues, both individually and/or as a family, that need the help of a therapist to be resolved. A systemic therapist will help you to understand and address your troubles in a wider context of the persons or subjects involved. The concept of systemic therapy stems from systems theory, which look at how parts of a system affect one another to sustain the stability of the whole system. It is used and developed successfully in psychotherapy since the early 1960's.

What is Family and Systemic therapy?

Systemic therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on how an individual's personal relationships, behavior patterns and life choices are connected with the issues and problems they are dealing with. If the family is the main system involved, therapy should involve ideally all the family members. If this is not the case, systemic therapy can be applied in an individual setting too, taking into account the relevant factors in the client's life.

What is the goal of Family and Systemic therapy?

The goal of systemic therapy is to foster change for the better in the given system. If the treatment is successful, step by step the pathological condition will subside, leaving the family system in a new and healthier balance. Systemic therapy goal is not to search for the culprit or identify the one who is responsible for the troubles caused.

Why there is a need for Family and Systemic therapy?

The need for Family therapy can appear in any family at any time. Family thearapy is not intended for "the bad families". As children are growing, family systems have to change inevitably. During this process family systems can run into difficulties, exhibiting all kinds of different symptoms. In such case this system needs a help of a professional in order to overcome such difficulties and Systemic therapy might be right choice for you. 

What issues can Family and Systemic therapy help with?

systemic therapist can help individuals or families to deal with issues that have significant impact on their lives. the therapist can help to deal with chronic illnesses, psychosomatic disorders, mood and anxiety disorders, anger management, work and school stressors, as well as ADHD, conduct disorder, eating disorders and many more. This kind of therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment especially for children and adolescents.

What does a therapy session look like?

A typical session will preferably include all members of the system and will typically last 1,5h. During the session the therapist will ask questions, listen to each member of the family, and help the family to communicate. Through specific techniques, the client or the family will be guided by the therapist in an unobtrusive way to new understandings and healthier state of balance. Systemic therapy belongs to a shorter form of psychotherapy, typically consisting of 6 – 15 sessions.

PSYMED approach

Our fast-paced modern world creates health issues caused by environmental stressors and psychological factors that interact with individual vulnerabilities and cause bodily symptoms and diseases that affect client's work, relationships and their life in general. 

PSYMED is an interdisciplinary platform of medical professionals that was established to remedy limitations of traditional disjointed approach to healthcare that views mind, body and spirit as separate. Our typical patient usually experience discomfort, hopping from one doctor to another, going through multiple examinations, but leaving the doctor's office without having a clear diagnosis or recommended treatment. Patients often feel dismissed, helpless, hopeless, left out and are trying all kinds of possible alternative approaches on their own.

PSYMED covers this gap in healthcare system by using a complex approach based on bio-psycho-social integration.
