Couples Counselling

Couples counselling is an inclusive term to capture that not every couple is in a marriage. Many couples experience natural conflicts in their relationship and some amount of conflict is healthy. However, conflict can easily intensify and create a generally negative, distant tone in the relationship. Chronically avoiding the issues that are important to us and the conflict that might arise if they were to be brought up can be equally as harmful. The couple relationship is unique in many ways to other relationships we have in our lives and often is the most challenging.

Talk therapy is very effective at helping enhance and increase intimacy in the couple relationship. It is important to remember that although most conflicts can be explored in therapy, there are circumstances where couples counseling is not appropriate.  These circumstances include when there is physical violence in the couples’ relationship. Domestic violence needs to be managed, but couples counselling is not the context for this.

There are a variety of conflicts that can arise in the context of couples. Regardless of what you are experiencing I can help with a variety of couples issues. It can very difficult if not impossible to sort out couples issues alone.

The relationships we have and our positions in them have profound influence over both the emotional and the physical support we have in life, as well as our own self-esteem and mental health. Talk therapy is very effective at helping to make sense of the conditions that arise in our relationships.
