Relationship Counselling and Couples Therapy

Conflict Resolution and Real Growth

Each of us brings to our relationships our selves, our experiences, and our past.  The attraction to one another at a certain stage in our lives may be an attraction to the way we’ve learnt to cope and deal with our past experiences.  As we mature and grow, and as our circumstances change our previously attractive ways of coping  can become the strongest point of conflict between us.

Spend some time exploring how you cope and how this impacts on your relationship.   Build healthy adult relationships and reduce conflict.

We use the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy and assist couples to identify the issues that cause conflict and prevent growth.  We facilitate the conversations they need to have to progress their positive relationships.

THE MYSTERY OF RELATIONSHIPS EXPLAINED IN THESE THREE SHORT VIDEOS

In long-term relationships, we often expect our beloved to be both best friend and erotic partner. But as Esther Perel argues, good and committed sex draws on two conflicting needs: our need for security and our need for surprise. So how do you sustain desire?
Anthropologist Helen Fisher takes on a tricky topic – love –and explains its evolution, its biochemical foundations and its
social importance.
Infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. But does it have to be? Relationship therapist Esther Perel examines why people cheat, and unpacks why affairs are so traumatic: because they threaten our emotional security. In infidelity, she sees something unexpected — an expression of longing and loss. A must-watch for anyone who has ever cheated or been cheated on, or who simply wants a new framework for understanding relationships.
