Couple relationships are a very important part of our lives. Typically, when we find ourselves in a secure and safe relationship we feel confident in the connection with the one we love. However, overtime and due to difficult life experiences, our relationships can become unhealthy, stressful and difficult to enjoy. Although this relationship is not what we set out to achieve for ourselves, sometimes we just don’t know any other way of being, nor do we possess the tools needed to create the secure and safe connection we desire. Couples therapy is a way to deepen emotional accessibility and physical intimacy with your partner by working through your distress and past hurts. We will work together to identify and interrupt your negative and exhausting patterns of interaction. Eventually, building new positive and fulfilling ways of communicating with one-another.
As a therapist working with couples I use a combination of different therapeutic techniques depending on the couple’s goals, however Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy is the approach I work most from. My goal is to ensure that both people in the relationship feel heard, respected and encouraged to share their story. Couples therapy can be emotionally and mentally difficult and it may require you to be patient with yourself and your partner. However, once the benefits of therapy start to appear through your improved communication and understanding of one another, you will be hooked! It is a blessing to see couples feeling proud of their journey and the work they achieve together. If you recognize any of these issues or concerns in your relationship and want to explore them further, then please do not hesitate to contact me for a free 20 minute phone consultation to discuss whether my services feel like the right fit for you and your partner.
