DELICIA FARRUGIA FRIEND OF THE FACTORY – FAMILY THERAPIST
Delicia is a warranted Family and Systemic Psychotherapist, having obtained a Masters in Family Therapy and Systemic Practice from the University of Malta. Her career in the social care field started as a social worker in the public sector, mainly in the field of substance abuse and mental health. Through this experience she collaborated with other local agencies in the field of family wellbeing, psychiatry, child protection, and criminal justice. It’s here where her interest in Family Therapy started emerging, when she witnessed the importance that families and significant relationships have in the way that individuals view their reality about themselves and others. Delicia has worked as a Family Therapist in local agencies in the public and voluntary sector as well as in the private sector. Delicia has also furthered her studies in Health and Social Care Management and has been lecturing in a local vocational college for the past ten years. Her passion and honour lie in witnessing individuals and families supporting each other’s growth, improvising new scripts, and creating fulfilling and healing relationships, which she does with great pride at Polaris BrainGym and Well-Being Factory.
