Couples Counselling and Psychotherapy

Experiencing relationship distress?

Relationships are an integral part of our lives. It can be extremely distressing when we are constantly engaged in high-intensity conflict with our partners, or when we feel that we can no longer connect with one another. While conflicts happen even in the best of relationships, these experiences should help both partners learn more about each other and strengthen the relationship.

Psychotherapy can help if you and your partner are experiencing:

  • Emotional distance
  • Communication breakdown
  • High-intensity conflicts
  • Unresolved past conflicts
  • Infidelity and betrayal
  • Intimacy issues
  • Differences over specific issues (e.g. Parenting differences, lifestyle differences, personality differences, decision to have children etc.)
  • Difficulties in navigating life-stage changes (e.g. Becoming parents, empty-nesters)
  • Uncertainty over the future of the relationship

Through couples therapy or marriage counselling, we will identify the strengths and weaknesses of the relationship and formulate a treatment plan to reduce the level of relationship distress. As a professional counsellor and psychotherapist, I will employ research-based interventions drawn from the frameworks of Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy to help couples deepen their understand of each other and reconnect as a couple.
