connexions psychotherapy and counselling


Systemic therapy draws on a variety of  theories of how people think about their lives and how we adapt to changing circumstances and events.

We all live within different and changing systems of relationships: family, marriage, work, social and professional contexts. At different stages in our lives, we might have to re-examine how we respond, behave and adjust.

Some of these changes might be predictable; such as leaving home, getting older, children becoming independent, the formation of new relationships, retirement, caring for and losing people we love.

Other changes might catch us unawares; e.g. illness, disability, redundancy, separation and divorce, unexpected loss or the effect of past traumatic experiences in our lives.


Systemic Therapy aims to create opportunities for change, to enable people to make new connections for themselves between events, ideas and choices in their lives.

Systemic therapists are non-judgemental and impartial in their approach and take into account social issues such as age, gender, class, sexuality, race, ethnicity and religion.

We can see people on their own, in couples or as families. Families might be nuclear, extended, co-habiting, lone parent, separated, blended or substitute.
