Couples Therapy

In couples therapy we can address the following problems:

  • Conflicting parenting styles
  • Difficulty resolving conflicts
  • Early relationship issues
  • Transition to a new stage of family life (marriage, blended family new baby, empty nest yndrome)
  • Difficulty with extended family
  • Infidelity or fear of infidelity
  • Missing intimacy
  • Divorce and separation

By the time many of you make your first appointment you have probably forgotten many of the positive things about yourselves.

Couples therapy offers each of you the benefit of a neutral place to come to talk about your difficult issues, as well as your successes as a couple and to get a new perspective on problems that may have been brewing for a long time.

We may start together, however, it should be noted that I may  also recommend scheduling some individual appointments. Many couples start with only one of you coming to appointments – work can progress even if your partner is initially reluctant to begin.

Here are some of the most common Benefits to Couples Counselling:

  • Less confusion and conflict with your partner
  • Improved communication skills
  • Identification of common goals as a couple
  • Gain respect for each others differences – learn how to ‘agree to disagree’
  • Successfully process a marital fight
  • Cope with setbacks
  • Rediscover the intimacy necessary for a healthy, long lasting relationship
  • Support and guidance during divorce and/or separation
