Couples therapy

Often when couples come to therapy, they believe that their concerns and behaviours are of individual nature and in many cases the tendency is to identify the problem in either one of the partners.  There are very few individual issues in a couple as love, hate, anger and sex, to name but a few, are of relational nature and their existence is complexly connected with being with other people. A couple is made of two individuals who are making a serious commitment to each other over time and share many important life tasks, some can be very challenging and demanding.

Each couple develops a unique way of being together and therefore requires a unique way of working with their concerns.  There is very little that is standard about a couple behaviour and therapy can help to manage differences, needs, sex, desire (or loss of it), shame and anxieties. The work often involves establishing a secure common ground which emphasises trust, empathy and rewarding experiences rather than straining ones.

The safety and acceptance that a well-functioning relationship provides can help in dealing with life events and support in developing good problem solving skills.
