Genine Bagley MSc Systemic Psychotherapy- Family Therapy
Would talking to someone be useful to you?
I am a systemic therapist with many years of experience of working with individuals and families in different settings. We are often faced with times when anxiety, sadness or depression affects our relationships and daily lives. Reflecting on our lives with someone enables us to consider what is useful to us now and what can assist us to make changes to contribute to our preferred futures. Through this exploration we can identify strengths and resources that will offer opportunities for change.
I offer individual, couple and family counselling.
I have an approach that encourages people to develop positive identities and hopefulness for future opportunities.
On initial contact we can share an overview of the issues you may be facing, together with our availability to meet. I try and be flexible in recognising the myriad of commitments that encroach on people's available time. I generally discuss costs at this point and recognise individual financial circumstance. At our first meeting we can explore the frequency of future appointments which can be weekly fortnightly or monthly as identified by the client.

My experience is based in working with families, couples and individuals, facilitating a reflection on identified issues and the possibilities for change. A systemic approach assists identification of strengths and resources supporting the recognition of solutions and how change could be accomplished. I am able to support people with issues that may distress them and assist them with the challenges they are facing, enabling them to view themselves and their situations with fresh perspectives and the development of new skills and knowledge.
I attended a workshop/conference in Bristol facilitated by AFT entitled 'An Integrated Systemic Approach to Trauma' with Dr Jeremy Woodcock on May 9th 2017. A very interesting presentation about the impact of negative events on an individual and their families. Consideration was given to historic and current relationships together with connections between body and mind.

As a systemic therapist my underlying ethic is the relationships that influence and impact on our daily experiences, physically, mentally and emotionally. I believe that in exploring these relationships we are able to identify choices and areas for adjustment or change through the development of a therapeutic relationship.
