We all want to love, be loved, and connect with our significant others. Yet, it can feel daunting at times, due to repetitive relationship patterns (influenced by our childhood wounding), poor communication skills, cultural/gender differences, and inability to negotiate “me” with “we”. So be it past trauma, poor communication skills, inability to handle stress, different upbringing (thereby different ways of doing things), or sexual challenges, among other things, I help couples identify the areas/habits which challenge them, behaviors which destroy relationships, and anything else that stands in the way of them achieving an intimate connection.

Couples Counselling Most relationships will become strained at some point and will begin producing maladaptive patterns. Relationship problems are rooted in our distorted egos, insecure attachment, emotional immaturity etc., which create to the many issues that develop for couples - infidelity, financial stress, poor communication, ill health, sexual divergence, household responsibility conflicts, addictions, etc., .... or just simply growing apart. Relationships can often be restored if help is sought soon enough. A counsellor can help reorient perceptions and emotions (how we look at a situation and how we feel about it) and assist the couple in adopting conscious structural changes.

Family Therapy and Couple's and Sexual Therapy are the clinical intervention to better the interpersonal relationships, and the dynamic interaction among the members of a family or a couple. It is not necessary to wait until the problem turns into something major to consult the specialist. In fact, it is logical to consult when what worries you is only a concern, and not to wait until the problem becomes a psychopathological entity. The problems of adult life such as those that are related to the couple, the sexual problems, the infidelities, separations, divorces and their aftermath, require the early intervention of the clinical psychologist so that you may live fully.

The goal of couples counselling is to help you communicate more effectively with your partner so that you understand each other's point of view. Ultimately, you will learn mutual respect & establish a more meaningful, harmonious & closer relationship. Communication skills are much easier to learn in a safe therapeutic environment as it gives each partner an opportunity to express their feelings & concerns. Active listening is important; the therapist can point out to you problem areas in a non-critical, helpful & safe environment. This is important because a partner often feels overwhelmed by criticism from their significant other & therefore tends to avoid future encounters.
