Satir Therapy is based on the work of visionary family therapist Virginia Satir (1916-1988). Her therapy is described as transformational in nature due to it focus on reconnecting families, couples, or individuals with their spiritual core. Individual clients, dyads or families are made aware of their behaviours, feelings, judgments, expectations, deeper level yearnings and styles of coping. Once these are better understood, change comes from awakening the client’s own inner wisdom.
Most of the therapists at Synergy Counselling have training in Satir Therapy and can answer questions you may have about whether this modality is a good fit for you. For more information about Satir Therapy see the Satir Institute of the Pacific website.
