Couples Counselling

Through a combination of evidence-based therapeutic techniques, and personal and professional experience, together we work on the problem you present from each person’s perspective, in a respectful, confidential, safe, and curious way.

I work from a compassionate space, where I don’t take sides (unless there is abuse). I explore the relational patterns between you, and see how each individual can change their part in the relationship dynamic that they find to be problematic.

“Staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take if we want to experience connection”

Brene Brown

I work with Couples around the following relational themes:

  • Gaining a stronger emotional and physical connection with each other.
  • Improving communication, resolving conflict, and not repeating the same argument or pattern of behaviour.
  • Stop hurting each other with criticism, blame, withdrawal, anger, and defensiveness.
  • Repairing and reconnecting after feeling hurt, rejected, disconnected resentful and lonely.
  • Working through intimacy and sexual challenges to cultivate eroticism and joy in the relationship.
  • Repairing after a betrayal, broken trust, or emotional or physical affairs.

“Every positive thing you do in your relationship is foreplay”
