My Approach To Couples Counselling

Regardless of the underlying issues conflict between couples warrant working with a neutral, empathic, well trained professional to listen to both sides and set the tone for empathy and understanding. As a therapist who works with couples around their relationships, emotions and intimacy I aim to create and maintain a trustworthy confidential alliance to repair the rupture as we work together towards understanding the dynamics in a non-pathologizing manner.

During a couple’s counselling session, we will collaborate to navigate relevant experiences in order to resolve issues related to life transitions such as the birth of a child, illness, unemployment, or mental health. I also work with new couples during adjustment period or others who struggle with childhood related trauma or attachment based unresolved issues that still impact their romantic relationships.

Emotions can be painful and sometimes scary. Nonetheless, if you want to resolve such challenges or rekindle your feelings with your partner; working with an experienced couple’s
counsellor can facilitate healthy communication, as well as negotiating internal and external factors that strain your relationship. We all realize that it is not sustainable to live with anger, bitterness, sarcasm or resentment. Therefore, I am inviting you to explore options and open yourselves up to new horizons of harmony and connection.

Let us work together to put an end to silent treatment, victimhood, and withdrawal. Let us work towards resolving relationship issues and aspire for the life you deserve. Let us change core organizing factors in both the self and key relationships and address dysfunctional patterns.

If you feel committed to the relationship and want to explore the process of reconciliation and intrinsic connection to overcome stagnation or damaging emotions and instead, to open up to a positive and loving future; then you have come to the right place.
