Systemic family therapy does not necessarily imply the involvement of all family members in all sessions. It is useful though to have all family members present in the initial evaluation process.

The involvement of the family in therapy does not imply blaming. The family can at times get stuck in unproductive patterns of relating that make life miserable for all family members. Therapy focuses on empowering the family and eliciting family strengths and resources that will help the family use its potentials to move on in more satisfying ways.

A single couple or family session lasts from 60 to 80 minutes. A typical course of treatment for couples and families is from 3 to 10 sessions performed once or twice a month.

A single group session lasts 90 minutes and is preformed weekly or every second week.

Individual systemic psychotherapy helps:

  • improve relationship problems
  • cope with problems in life and work
  • improve the quality of life and satisfaction with oneself and others
  • resolve parenting and/or marital concerns
  • improve once mental being.

A single individual session lasts from 45 to 50 minutes and is performed weekly.
