SYM Academy is a practice academy specialising in family therapy and other therapeutic family-related work for individuals and couples, as well as training programmes for professionals working with families. As an advocate for the welfare of women and children as well as a firm believer that family is an integral aspect of human society, we offer trainings, education as well as family therapy to spread awareness and educate the public. This is such that many can continue to benefit from the work of family therapy, improve relationships among family members and resolve family conflicts amicably.
SYM, which means ‘mutual’ in Greek, is a dynamic merger of expertise between the former PPIS Family Therapy Institute and PPIS Training & Consultancy, constantly seeking innovation and connection to reconnect relationships and deepen professional capabilities. We render our knowledge and expertise in family therapy through our family programmes islandwide. We are passionate on expanding our volunteers’ understanding towards family dynamics, its importance as well as best ways to advise and suggest possible solutions.
Family therapy is the centre of our family-related programmes here at PPIS. We believe that through informed and emphatic intervention, domestic issues and conflicts will be resolved and reduced for the sake of the children in the household. Thus, SYM Academy is established to introduce the benefits of family therapy to families and societies alike.
