Psychotherapy for couples


 

Relationships are an essential part of our lives, from family and friends to partners and spouses. We have a natural tendency to develop intimate and intense relationships with a few select individuals, which can bring joy and happiness. Difficulties in relationships are one of the most common causes of unhappiness, and often bring people into therapy.

The reasons for seeking relationship therapy include:

  • Sense of something missing/lost in the relationship
  • Lack of communication with partner
  • Escalating arguments/ circular arguments, distressing patterns of conflict
  • Loss of intimacy and sexual desire
  • Impact of professional life on the relationship
  • Parenting issues, dealing with toddlers or teenagers
  • Adapting to marriage or becoming parents
  • Impact of post natal depression on the relationship
  • Feeling badly treated by partner
  • Repeating destructive relationship patterns
  • Infidelity
  • Commitment difficulties
  • Divorce and separation
  • Coping with a break up

By helping you to identify the roots of your difficulties relationship counselling brings clarity and facilitates positive change.

 

My Approach - Psychoanalytic psychotherapy


A psychotherapist will listen and help you to understand how past experiences, concerns about the future, or issues surrounding self-confidence may affect your life. In therapy you can explore how you respond to events in your life and begin to gain insight into the way that you relate to yourself and others. The therapist will not tell you what to do or give advice but will help you understand more about your own choices.

Many people experience emotional difficulties at some point in their lives. When in distress, people may turn to their family and friends for support, however, sometimes this is not enough and professional help is needed. Counselling and therapy can be helpful for a wide range of problems including:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Questions around personal identity
  • Unresolved issues from the past
  • Feeling unable to move-on in life
  • Traumatic experience
