When you start a relationship, you need to understand the other person and accept their flaws, quirks, and beliefs. But if there are problems like past trauma, communication issues, or a lack of connection, it can cause trouble in your relationships with your partner or family. Many couples struggle with these problems and don't know how to fix them, which leads to a high rate of partnership breakdown and divorce. That's why we have counsellors who specialize in helping couples and relationships.
Couples Therapy And Conjoint Sessions Can Help
Our aim is to help you achieve your relationship goals, and improve your relationship bond. During couples therapy, we teach techniques and methods that enable you to resolve conflicts and plan for a happy future together.
Family therapy can help you work through relational issues that may arise during their healing process.
Sometimes a person's family can affect therapy progress. Having a conjoint session can help address communication issues and relationship breakdowns within the family, which can be beneficial for the person's individual therapy. It creates a safe space to express needs and allows families to gain a better understanding of each other's experiences.
Our therapists use techniques from various approaches like Emotion Focused Couples Therapy, PACT, and Gottman Couples Therapy to assist you in strengthening your relationship and connecting more intimately.
