Systemic Couples Therapy
In couples therapy, the systemic approach plays a significant role, focusing on understanding relationships as complex dynamic systems. A systemic therapist analyzes the relationship as a whole, examining the mutual interactions between partners, their families, and the broader social environment. This approach assumes that relationship issues often stem from larger contexts, such as culture, values, or family histories.
During couples therapy grounded in the systemic approach, the therapist helps partners identify behavioral patterns that recur in their relationship. Analyzing these patterns enables an understanding of how interactions between partners affect the entire relationship system. The systemic therapist encourages exploring how each decision and action taken by one partner influences the other, aiding in identifying areas requiring change. It also allows a better understanding of the roles partners play in their relationship, assisting in breaking rigid roles and creating space for more flexible and healthy interactions.
Ultimately, a therapist working within the systemic approach helps the couple understand that their relationship is part of a larger system, and changes in one part of this system can affect the whole. The therapist supports partners in exploring these relationships, promoting openness and flexibility, which can lead to more harmonious and satisfying interactions in the future.
A couples therapy session lasts from 50 minutes to an hour and costs 200 PLN.
