Brief Therapy

Brief strategic systemic therapy is defined as neither normative nor pathologising. Problems presented by patients are approached practically rather than analytically. There is no attempt to determine past causes; instead the goal is to identify current dysfunctional patterns of behaviour and to address those patterns directly.

One part of the work takes place during the sessions. Another very important part takes place outside the sessions, by the patient in their real-life situations. The patient improves his or her current status by taking an active part in changing how they deal with challenging situations.

Based on her training, Daria works in accordance with the methodology and protocols developed by the Gregory Bateson Institute Europe. Systemic therapy was orginally developed by the Palo Alto school and the Mental Research Institute (MRI) in California.

This service is intended for men and women of all ages, couples, parents, teenagers and school-age children.
