What is Couples Counselling / Relationship Therapy?
Regardless of the intent behind seeking counselling, relationship therapy can provide a space to talk about the unspoken, to clarify the assumed, to heal the hurt, to strengthen the bond, amplifying happiness and fulfillment for all people involved. We acknowledge that relationships are complicated. There often is not a single answer, and there is always countless ways to look at the same problem. Having a neutral counsellor in the room, can help piece apart reasons behind problems, can highlight themes in values, and can support translation between partners. We can support you in defining what you want, and how you’re going to get there.
For people looking to strengthen their relationship: To address a specific concern, resolving anything from pet peeves to destructive relationship patterns, work through challenging family dynamics, learn how to be a support for your partner, equality in parenting, to figure out what other partner wants, deal with past trauma, to find an equilibrium of sex drives.
For people looking to start (or re-start) their relationship: Support with revealing a secret, healing from a dissolution of trust, newfound priorities, a shift in values, challenges following or preparing for major lift events, a last hope to resolve relationship issues, drug or alcohol overuse, partner over-working, over-spending.
For people looking to end their relationship: How to end a relationship gracefully, navigating resentments, communicate frustrations, starting a new, non-intimate relationship, establishing and accomplishing common life goals: parenting, finances, workplace needs. Get support for your relationship to move forward and connect in more balanced way.
