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.

My Couples' 12 Emotional Needs Survey will allow you and your partner to compare your individual emotional needs in your relationship. You first must understand each other's emotional needs before you can dance in synchrony. Clients often are surprised to learn which emotional needs their partner rate as high or low priority, for example, conversation, admiration, affection, power-sharing, emotional closeness, and sexual intimacy. Excellent enrichment exercise for couples!

Even couples who have weathered 50 years together report going through times of severe marital dissatisfaction. Through utilizing strategies and tools to communicate better, couples can learn to resolve or make peace with their differences. You will benefit by having a chance to practice new ways of relating to each other in session, and then taking exercises home to work on through the week. I create a safe atmosphere for each person to be vulnerable and honest about what changes you would like to see in your future, and then I help facilitate a conversation where you and your partner make small practical steps towards finding peace and happiness together.

Couples often get stuck in negative patterns, or ways of relating to one another. These negative patterns can cause couples to attack each other emotionally, or worse, drift apart emotionally. It is vital to identify the emotions that drive this cycle, and through therapy, learn to create a dance that brings you close to your partner. There is great risk in being in a committed relationship, because there is no one else in the world who can hurt you as much as your partner can. But, on the flip side, there is no one else who can help you feel more loved. It is a greater risk, not to risk with your partner!
