Relationships teach us so much about ourselves and our Egos. The term "couple" for this purpose is defined as "two people" who seek assistance. Perhaps you are Friends, Family-members, Parent and Teen, Life-partners, Work-colleagues or Neighbors. Laura can assist with any relationship dynamics through the use of mediation, counselling or guidance.

Dr. Smith believes that being happily married for over 4 decades and successfully helping hundreds of couples work it o for over 3 decades gives him a leg up. His approach is to see the individuals separately to learn their issues and difficulties and then to work with the couple. When the couple becomes bogged down in conflict, it is time to go back to an individual approach and come back to the couple when they are ready to be reasonable, fair and compromise. Dr. Smith believes that far too many couples expect a quick fix and throw the towel in prematurely before all avenues have been explored. Dr. Smith believes all couple relationships can be worked out successfully with the right coach

Relationships are what make life interesting and fulfilling but at times can be challenging. Concise, clear communication between people ensures that the needs of each person can be met. The number one issue, Deborah addresses within relationships that are experiencing difficulty is; clarity of communication . The good news is that with a little attention and work - communication skills can be easily addressed and improved!

My approach to relationship and marriage counselling is a Brief Solution Focused approach. I tend to focus on solutions rather than problems, what changes do the couple, want to see in their desired future , what are their goals for the relationship . To encourage the couple to communicate about what they want and observe progress they are making and of course to continue to date.
