Individual Systemic Therapy

What is Systemic Therapy and How Do I Apply It?

In addition to psychoanalysis and behavioural therapy, the systemic approach is the most widely used and practiced therapy and counselling approach. Systemic therapy is an independent psychotherapeutic procedure and represents the generic term for a variety of approaches and models that have evolved from couple and family therapy.

The main point of the systemic individual therapy is to understand the clients and especially their “problem behaviour” (the symptoms shown) in the context of their relationships and environment.
 

As a systemic therapist I have focused on supporting my clients in dealing with:

Depression

There are many different reasons why people might feel depressed and seek professional help. Some might go through difficult life events such as bereavement, trauma, divorce, or financial problems. Some are experiencing depression after giving birth, during winter time, in menopause, or due to hormonal changes. Common symptoms include fatigue, lack of appetite, decreased interest in work or hobbies, and a strong self-criticising voice. 
Using a combination of cognitive behavioral, systemic, and hypnotherapeutic techniques, I support my clients in:

  • Identifying the type of depression, and the contexts where they experience depression

  • Learn to challenge and reframe negative thoughts, identify false beliefs

  • Understand the root of their problems and work towards finding solutions

  • Develop a more compassionate relationship with themselves

  • Set personal goals for a more meaningful life
     

Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety

As psychotherapist working since many years with people suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, and social anxiety, I offer my expertise in:

  • Helping you identify unhealthy negative beliefs and behaviours and replace them with healthier, more balanced ones;

  • Giving you a sense of control over your thinking process and your behaviour;

  • Increasing your resilience; 

  • Setting goals for those areas of your life that require change and reaching them;

  • Improve your self-confidence and self-esteem;

  • Helping you reconnect, repair or rebuild important relationships in your life.

Stress management

 

The most effective way of managing your stress is to have a holistic treatment approach, including practices to nurture both your mind and your body. 

I believe that it is important to focus on decreasing the influence -when possible- of those factors that inflict stress on us, and in parallel, on increasing those sources that boost our physical and emotional energy.

My contribution is to take an individualised approach by understanding the roots of your stress and identifying together possibilities and options to release it. During psychotherapy we focus on:

  • Identifying the area of your life that needs more attention and care;

  • Setting priorities for change and identifying useful resources;

  • Learning how to gain more awareness and control over the way you use your time and energy;

  • Learning how to deal with negative and unhealthy thoughts;

  • Identifying and expressing your needs in the work and private context;

Goal oriented therapy and personal exploration

 

Sometimes you don’t want to “fix” anything. You just want to:

  • Understand yourself better;

  • Reach goals you set for yourself;

  • Be able to take a difficult decision;

  • Lose patterns of behaviour that are not healthy for you. 

Yet some other times you experience events that are overwhelming such as a divorce or a breakup, you suffer a loss, you relocate to another country, and you have to start all over. 

My part here is to offer you my experience, knowledge and emotional support so that you can get through difficult times with resilience and optimism.
