Much of life satisfaction depends on our ability to create and maintain meaningful and mutually satisfying relationships. Our attachments to partners can be a great source of love, comfort, soothing, and pleasure. Emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy together form the cornerstone of couple bonds. The CFIR couple therapist will create safety in the therapeutic environment. He or she will not ‘side’ with any one partner, but instead will explore how emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy has been blocked and how each member in the couple inadvertently may be contributing to the disconnection.

Couples can often feel disconnected and can have long standing patterns of interaction which feel like they can't move away from, no matter how hard they try. Couples work can help unlock this feeling of 'lock down' and help people understand the pain and fear under the behaviours -their own and their partner's. Through exploring together couples can heal old wounds and begin to feel safe, understood, connected, engaged, and fulfilled bringing vitality back to the relationship.

Conflict in a relationship is inevitable but finding ways to communicate constructively in the time of conflict is the key. When we feel unsafe we protect instead of connect so we hurt and we get hurt. At Inward counselling we work with couples to be able to find their patterns of fights, to develop self-awareness to understand their needs and to learn skills to be able to express their needs in a way that their partner listens and connects. In our work with couples we use emotion and attachment focused approaches as well as Gottman method couple therapy to learn new communication skills, to heal the wounds from the past and to feel safe enough to rekindle and reconnect.

The couple relationship is a very close and intimate bond between two partners. When hurdles arise within a couple relationship, it can be very beneficial to seek the professional support of a third party to offer a fresh, unbiased perspective. Counselling support aims to strength the connection between partners while inviting each member to be curious about recurring patterns and behaviours in their lives together.

Romantic relationships can be hard work. They require regular care to keep them functioning well. Many couples expect romance to go on forever without doing the necessary work only to face the realities of relationships. Relationship issues become more magnified when one or both parties carry a history of trauma. Couples counselling can help individuals learn about one another, communicate effectively and grow as individuals while becoming loving partners. The therapist is an unbiased party who is there to help both partners function together well as a unit by providing solution-based interventions.

The level of challenge a couple deals with in a relationship, and the ability that each couple has to overcome these hurdles depends on a number of factors. My goal is to help you both develop strategies in order to: better communicate; identify the direction you want to take in your lives as a couple; and most importantly, to grow together, as individuals in a relationship with each other, on your journey through life!

Couples are sometimes stuck in their cycle of communication where the "dance" has stopped and no one can move smoothly. Negative patterns have taken hold and both partners are caught in a rut. In a supportive and empathic environment I help clients understand and experience where they have been caught in their cycle, where they no longer hear or understand their partner. With new insights and understanding they become able to hear the music again, join the flow and move ahead with new choices in a clearer channel of communication.

Let's work on removing those barriers that are impacting your growth as a couple. Learning to be open-minded ad attentive even when you are having some difficult conversations about work ,marriage, family, holidays, wedding. Let's look at those thoughts and feelings that may be acting as a barrier to hearing the other person. Every couple has their strengths and weaknesses in how they communicate. It could simply be a new kind of stress or festering frustrations that have built up over time there are plenty of options we can work on if you are willing to try.

You are at the end of your rope. You love your partner, you don't want to end the relationship so you are looking for help, or perhaps you just found out the awful truth that your partner is having an affair or watching porn, or is never willing to connect. Maybe you have tried couple therapy before and things improved a bit then you found yourself back in the same sad stuck place. Possibly this is the first time you are seeking support. Couples often need help to find their way back to each other. Please visit my website or call me to find out how I can help you create the strong loving connection with your partner that you deserve.

Couples face all sorts of unique challenges and I believe in creating a safe and inviting space where both parties can share openly what they are experiencing. From there, we can determine a plan to help both parties work towards a common goal, this may include repairing/healing, rebuilding, reconnecting, focusing on better communication, among other things.

Couple Counselling Therapy involves learning how to do the following and much more: love your partner and be loved in return, reconnect with that person you fell in love with, communicate and be heard, transcend the spoken words to truly understand the meaning and importance of your partner's communication. This process necessitates a vision that neither partner is right or wrong and that the other has very different needs that we will probably not understand but that we will need to make central.
