Systemic therapy regards an individual as part of a larger unit, e.g. family or an organisation. It seeks to understand the individual in relation to others rather than as a single entity. Systemic therapy seeks to identify patterns with significant relationships. Through this systemic exploration, it allows the individual to uncover helpful or unhelpful ways one behaves or communicates based on their beliefs. Systemic therapy is used to explore a range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, body image issues, eating disorders and low self-esteem.
