Relationship, Marriage and Couple Therapy 

"Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart, and the senses." – Lao Tzu

Relationships are about trust from both partners and take open communication to maintain. When difficulties arise each person can lose the ability to compromise and tensions can result in with two people withholding from each other. Negative patterns can emerge that are hard to break and differences can get more polarised. If this continues then a trained therapist can help.

Couple therapy involves both parties taking responsibility and owning their difficulties and not blaming each other. The aim is to work on conflict management, communication, and emotional sharing.

 

“You could start a fire with the heat between you two."

"You're mistaking bitter animosity for heartfelt affection.”

― Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
