COUPLES COUNSELLING - WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

 

Couples experiencing pain, be it betrayal, affairs, infidelity, pain or mistrust disconnect from each other.  This can lead to a parallel relationship which feels more peaceful but is alone, separate and isolated.  In turn, it can lead to breaking up, constant conflict, withdrawing from each other, third parties being involved, addictions or even divorce.  

 

I am an IMAGO CERTIFIED COUPLES THERAPIST  who can help you as a couple to realize that you are not each others enemy, but that you can repair past wounding and become best friends again.  Solve the pain that leads to disconnection and learn to connect through dialogue, essence to essence; having a happy heart, peaceful mind and a joyful spirit.

 

Couples counseling is beneficial for:

  • Couples who want to enrich their relationship and desire an improved and better connection

  • Couples desiring repair to a damaged relationship, after an affair -emotional or sexual- has been discovered

  • Couples considering divorce, but before they do, want to make sure that things can or cannot be rescued

  • Couples planning on getting married, but want to start their married life with a healthy, connected relationship

  • Couples desiring to be healthy, attuned and aware parents

 

Couples or relationship counseling is needed when:

 

  • Unresolved and repeated conflict, blaming, critisizing and threats of divorce is causing a break-up and disconnection in the union of the couple

  • One party has already moved out of the bedroom, house or relationship and you are separated form each other

  • One party is involved in an affair (emotional or sexual) and he/she has invisibly exited the marriage

  • You know that you still love your partner, but it doesn’t feel that way

  • Your relational space has become a quiet and “civil” place, lacking energy

  • An addiction, for example drug/ alcohol abuse, gambling or pornography is sabotaging the unity of the couple
