Systemic Therapy works in ways that acknowledges the contexts of people’s families and other relationships, sharing and respecting individual’s different perspectives, beliefs, views and stories, and exploring possible ways forward. Some common features of Systemic Therapy are that conversations are collaborative, and as the therapist comes from a not-knowing position, there is genuine curiosity in the person’s story. A fundamental principle is the belief that people are experts of their own life’s and have many skills, values, abilities, and hopes and dreams which will assist them to reduce the influence of the problem in their lives. It is hoped having conversations in sessions can bring these skills, abilities, hopes and dreams to the front. Sessions can take place with individuals, couples and families.
