What is systemic therapy?

In November 2018, the Federal Joint Committee of Germany (“Gemeinsame Bundesausschuss, “G-BA”) recognized the medical need and benefit for systemic therapy in adults as a psychotherapy procedure.









Systemic therapy is a form of talking therapy in which, based on your goals, new perspectives and solutions can be developed through a resource- and solution-oriented discussion.


The assumption is that psychological illnesses or destructive patterns were or are solution attempts and reactions to difficult human life circumstances. Over time, however, they may have solidified, become inadequate and cause problems such as:

  • Relationship problems, frequent separations
  • Low self-esteem and self-acceptance (eg self-doubt)
  • Poor stress management, blockages
  • Difficulties in dealing with fellow human beings, colleagues in the workplace
  • Burnout
  • Conflicts with family and friends
  • Mental illnesses such as depression, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, and psychosomatic complaints.
  • etc.

Systemic therapy offers a wide range of methods that are individually applicable to each individual.
