Couples Counselling

Let's Partner to Transform Your Relationship

 Couples therapy can help heal the wounds that drive your conflict; improve communication; and restore playfulness, curiosity, and tolerance for intimacy in your relationship.

Relationship distress is the single most common reason for seeking counselling.

Such distress undermines family functioning and is strongly associated with depression, anxiety, and poor physical health.

In modern life, many people have no choice but to increasingly depend on their intimate partners for support and connection. Often the reality for couples is that they appear to functionally live in a community of two. In this context, the quality of their closest relationship becomes increasingly significant in their lives.

What can a couple do when they find their most intimate relationship to be distressing rather than fulfilling?

Couples Counselling provides a process - a journey of healing distressed relationships:

  • From alienation, to emotional engagement.
  • From vigilant defense and self-protection, to openness, and risk taking.
  • From a passive helplessness in the face of the relentless dance of conflict and power struggles, to actively choreographing the dance of connection.
  • From desperately blaming each other, to a responsible understanding of how each partner makes it difficult for the other to be responsive and caring.
  • From a focus on the other’s flaws, to the discovery of one’s own fears and longings.

Counselling helps a couple journey from isolation to connectedness
