Systemic psychotherapy involves looking at the clients in the context of their relationships with others. It looks at the way that you interact within a couple or a family group, and seeks to bring about more understanding of each other through raising your awareness of how other people in your immediate environment think and feel, their emotional needs, and how they relate to you. Systemic therapy differs from a more analytic approach in that it does not seek reasons for the ways that you behave; it simply attempts to recognise and address patterns of behaviour within couples or families that might be causing difficulties. Systemic therapy can also be used in a team or business context.
