Relationship and Couples Counselling
I imagine if you are reading this, you have reached a turning point in your relationship. Somewhere along the way, you lost connection. You may be noticing you don’t laugh or have fun anymore. You may be having the same fight over and over again without any solutions.
You are not alone. Many couples end up here. The good news is that it’s repairable. You and your partner can rebuild an intimate, connected life together. Couples counselling can be the key to getting things back on track.
Although everyone’s relationship is different, we face similar issues. We’ve all faced struggles with the people we care about the most.
What Are Some Common Relationship Struggles?
- Having the same fight over and over
- Poor communication
- Differing views of roles and expectations
- Feeling misunderstood and not heard
- Infidelity, trust, and betrayal
- Emotionally disconnected: feeling more like roommates than lovers
Are You Too Late to Repair the Relationship?
You may be thinking that it’s too late for any type of relationship repair. It may be that you think the hurts are too big or your distance is too far to bring you together again. You may even believe that all hope is lost.
I understand that. Relationships are hard. Even the most successful ones have problems.
I believe, your relationship at its core, has the wonderful possibility of restoring the love and shared meaning it once had. There is hope.
What Can You Expect in Couples Counselling?
You may find the first sessions difficult. You are experiencing a lot of distress in your relationship and may be somewhat nervous or anxious to talk about it. You may even be afraid that you will be blamed for what is happening between you and your partner. I have no agenda or desire to blame either of you. I will support and pay attention to each of you individually as well as you as a couple. I want to find out what is going on between you and what is needed to help navigate you through this difficult time.
I build my practice around the highly acclaimed Gottman Method, which focusses on improving friendship, deepening emotional connection, and learning new ways to deal with problems and conflicts in a positive way.
My training through the Gottman Institute provides me with well researched, evidence-based methods to help you build a better and more fulfilling relationship. You can create a fulfilling relationship through a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner, and your patterns. The Gottman Method ensures you have the best opportunity possible to strengthen your relationship.
