When an individual enters therapy with a reported problem, it is still viewed through a systems lens. We do not live in a bubble. We are constantly influencing our environment and others around us as well as being constantly influenced by them. How an individual interprets and makes meaning from his environment and relationship has a significant relationship that may be influencing you in an unwanted way.
Therapy also focuses on shifting perspectives to find new meanings and interpretations that ultimately affect your emotional experience and behaviors. It is a model of therapy that attempts to increase an individual’s power and influence over their environment.
