Family Therapy

Family therapy, also known as systemic therapy, is an approach that involves working with families to improve communication and resolve conflicts. It recognizes that an individual’s mental health is influenced by their family system and aims to address issues within the family that may contribute to or exacerbate mental health concerns. Family therapy is not about placing blame but rather fostering a supportive environment for growth and healing.
