I welcome all relationships, LGBTQ, all ages and couples just starting their relationship.
Relationships are not easy. Often we put off dealing with our relationship issues, sometimes until it is too late. It is not uncommon for couples to wait years before deciding to get some help.
Each couple is unique, but there are core components to a healthy relationship. Therapy will help to identify the strength of your relationship and to overcome any obstacles that are preventing you from having a fulfilling and healthy relationship. Learn how to enjoy each other, share activities and your lives.
Poor communication is often the primary reason for couples to reach out for counselling. Over time, couples can develop unhealthy communication styles which can result in difficulties to connect, feel intimate and speak freely. Couples can learn a new way to engage in conflict, problem solve and reach resolutions. Couples counselling is done in a safe space that allows both parties to speak openly without judgment with feedback from a non-biased observer to provide skills to effectively communicate thoughts, feelings and needs.
Sexual problems are common in relationships and couples counselling can help the couple gain better knowledge about sexuality and learn to listen to each other in an accepting and non-judgmental manner. Sex is an important part of a healthy relationship. It can be a healing component to a relationship, but can also be a trigger of anxiety, anger and embarrassment. Learn how to share emotional and physical intimacy to nurture your bond. With a gentle and integrative approach to sexual issues therapy will help set you at ease and guide you into talking about sex.
Infidelity can severely strain a relationship and obviously, it can end a relationship. But couples can also repair their relationship with the guidance of a therapist. Couples may report feeling confused about maintaining the relationship, having difficulty being in the presence of one another, feeling anxious and obsessive, feeling shame and guilt as well as anger.
Lack of trust can destroy relationships, but through therapy, couples can address and analyze trust issues in their relationship. Couples can work together to build their relationship by re-establishing trust.
If you and your partner want help to decide whether or not to end your relationship. Or if you require some help to get through a separation or divorce.
The purpose of family therapy is one way to address specific issues and to improve the overall psychological health of the family system. Financial hardship, the death of a loved one, divorce, the introduction of a new family member, or any other stressful event can strain family relationships. Family therapy can enhance family relationships and provide support for concerns like interpersonal conflict, behavioural issues that are symptoms of a larger issue in the family system, problems, communication breakdown problems, and other issues.
