COUPLES THERAPY

Our relationships with others are a mirror through which we see ourselves and the world. By building meaningful connections with others, we gain insight into our own thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and develop a more nuanced understanding of the world around us.

Are you feeling stuck in your relationship, constantly arguing over the same issues with no resolution in sight? Are you struggling to communicate effectively with your partner and feeling disconnected from each other emotionally? You're not alone.

Many couples experience these challenges, and it’s natural to feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. That’s where couples therapy can help. Through a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment, I can help you and your partner work through your challenges and build a stronger, more fulfilling relationship.

My approach to couples therapy is based on the idea that individual behaviour and experience cannot be understood in isolation, but must be viewed within the context of the larger system in which it occurs. This means looking not just at the individual behaviours and emotions of each partner, but also understanding how the relationship patterns and dynamics contribute to the issues at hand. I help couples recognize and comprehend these patterns, fostering a secure and non-judgmental environment where they can identify and express their underlying emotions and needs.

In addition, I use attachment theory to help couples identify and understand each partner’s attachment style and how it influences their behaviour in the relationship. Attachment theory is a profound developmental theory of personality and intimate relationships. It provides a framework for understanding how early attachment experiences shape our patterns of relating and how these patterns play out in adult relationships. 

By understanding and addressing their underlying attachment needs and dynamics, couples can work together to create new patterns of relating that are more supportive and secure, leading to a stronger and more satisfying relationship. I might use various techniques from emotionally focused therapy or systemic therapy to help the couple communicate more effectively, improve their emotional connection, and establish healthier patterns of interaction.
