Relationship therapy can help people understand why their relationship is in distress or why they feel distant from their partner. If you are not happy with a certain dynamic in your relationship, we can explore why is it there, what triggered it in your relationship, what made you vulnerable to experience this particular problem and what you and your partner both do to maintain it. Being more aware of one’s own behaviour, emotional state and thinking processes allows one to be more in control of what response one can choose in a given situation. The couples can agree on how they can recognise when the tension building up and how not to let it escalate.

What are the most common issues that people bring in relationship therapy?

  • Relationship Discord and recurrent arguments
  • Loss of trust
  • Feeling lonely 
  • Affairs
  • Ending a relationship
  • Jealousy
  • Power and control in the relationship
  • Becoming parents
  • Feeling distant from your partner
  • Impact of addictions on the relationships
  • Retirement

Relationship counselling can be helpful for both individuals and couples, as it looks at what lies behind current difficulties, paying attention both to the past and the present in order to bring about positive change and develop a deeper sense of intimacy and closeness in the relationship.

How many sessions will you need and what is the cost?

It’s difficult to say, but on average, after about 6 sessions it becomes clearer what is needed or just the insight that you gained in 6 sessions might be enough to end counselling.
