My Approach to Couples Therapy

As you embark on couples counselling sessions with me, the initial stages involve a thoughtful and comprehensive exploration of your relationship dynamics. Through a series of questions, we'll delve into essential aspects such as your goals, values, family of origin, and cultural influences.

This wealth of information serves as a crucial foundation for the counselling process, enabling me to provide targeted interventions during critical moments of conflict between you and your partner, drawing upon your background and history.

Next, we embark on the discovery phase, where together, we delve deeper into the core issues affecting your relationship. Guided by my expertise and introspection, you'll gain valuable insights into your respective roles in the relationship and work towards addressing any dysfunctional tendencies that may hinder your growth as a couple.

As the journey progresses, you'll gradually gain a heightened awareness of the causes of distress within your relationship. Armed with this newfound clarity, you'll begin to perceive your dynamic with each other from a fresh and objective perspective. This newfound clarity paves the way for constructive changes, fostering understanding, and enhancing communication between you and your partner.

Through the counselling process, you'll develop a deeper bond, allowing you both to navigate challenges with greater resilience and empathy. My goal as your couples counsellor is to guide you on this path of self-discovery and relational healing, empowering you both to build a stronger and more fulfilling partnership. With dedication and commitment, you'll find yourselves equipped with the tools and insights needed to cultivate a loving and harmonious connection that stands the test of time. Together, we'll pave the way for a future filled with compassion, understanding, and a shared vision for a thriving and happy relationship.
