It is normal for relationships to have highs and lows from time to time. However the pressures and strain of everyday life can begin to take its toll on the relationship. Suddenly the relationship that once seemed so great in the beginning now seems problematic. When a very prime relationship starts losing intimacy and trust we are affected deeply and our health and happiness suffers.
Working together in a safe non judgemental environment can create a space that allows you and your spouse / partner to be heard in a healthy way. Instead of remaining stuck, couples pick up new tools and learn strategies to help them manage their relationship more effectively.
I offer short or long term therapy for couples. Reasons for
presenting for couples therapy may include:
Feelings of isolation in the relationship
Coping with separation or divorce
Couples counselling can also help you to:
Recognise negative and destructive patterns of relating to each other.
Learn how to communicate better and minimize conflict.
Understand how family beliefs and values play out in the current relationship.
Find a way to listen and be heard by the other.
Happily ever after is not a fairytale - it is a choice.
