Family Therapy – Ms Geraldine Ellul Bonici
Systemic Couple and Family Therapy is a paradigm shift of understanding and treating psychological distress, human relations and mental disorders.
The Systemic psychotherapeutic approach enables the use of the individual’s relationships as a resource to reduce stress and difficulties for all family members (or colleagues at the work place) to improve their quality of life.
Systemic family psychotherapists carry out psychotherapeutic sessions to address disorders, and cognitive, emotional, behavioural and relational difficulties, such as:
Marital disharmony; Separation/divorce; Couple reconciliation; Infidelity, Mediation; Transitional stages of life issues; Relationship issues; Reconstituted families; Foster care, adoption and related issues; Family disruptions due to social, political, economic and religious issues; Domestic violence; Child protection and child custody; Abuse and Abandonment/Neglect; School-related problems; Parenting and child rearing; Traumatic experiences; Loss and bereavement; Terminal illnesses; Families with an incarcerated member; Sexuality issues; Fertility problems; LGBTIQ issues; Work related problems; health issues that affect relationships, marriages and family dynamics; Depression; Anxiety; Stress; Self-esteem; Adjustment disorder; Emotion regulation (e.g. addressing HEE and Anger management); OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder); Identity issues; Personality issues (e.g.’ Borderline Personality Disorder), ADHD/ADD; Conduct disorders; Disability; ASD; SAD; Behavioural problems (including child and adolescent behaviours); Substance abuse and addictions, Eating disorders; and Families with Psychosis (especially with Schizophrenia and Bipolar).
