Within the frame of Family therapy, my approach is based on inter-psychic solutions to behavioural problems. In layman’s terms this means that problems experienced by family members, lie between individuals- (ineffective interactional patterns). The way people define relationships sets the stage for the way they will interact in that dynamic in future and it either serves the individually optimally or it leads to individuals becoming symptomatic in that they are not interacting optimally with their environment.
I make use of family therapy in many instances where it is aimed at activating change in the relationships within the family and between family members.
This intervention is often used for family disputes, substance abuse within the family, confronting a situation that requires resolve, immigration, bereavement and extended family matters.
Family therapy ordinarily makes use of 2 hour sessions in an effort understand the dynamics of the entire family system.
Family therapy aims at re-defining roles within family systems that serve the system in interacting optimally with the environment. To schedule a Family Therapy session with me, please contact me here.
