Family therapy is sometimes known as systemic therapy. It essentially means that the therapist can work with more than one person in the room, where the conversation about a problem is perhaps looked at from different points of view. Not everybody in a family needs to be or indeed wants to be there. however a therapist might look at how that person might like their views to be known.
Family therapy works very well with children or teenagers. Having worked in a Family therapy team in Temple Street Children’s University Hospital for many years, Deirdre is familiar with many children’s issues, including medical conditions, eg diabetes Type 1, neurological conditions such as epilepsy, or other diagnoses such as Aspergers, as well as children/teens with eating disorders or presenting with behavioural challenges in school or at home.
