Couples Therapy

Relationships contribute to our greatest joy as well as our biggest struggles. Simply put, relationships are hard and therefore they require intentional care.  When we are close in our attachments, we feel euphoric. When those bonds are shaken, we feel our existence is threatened.

When things get challenging, IT’S OKAY TO ASK FOR HELP.

Couples therapy helps you to improve the quality of your relationship, learn new ways of communicating, and enhances emotional and physical intimacy.

Couples seek therapy for different reasons, some of which are: emotional injuries, differences in parenting styles and personal values, changes in life stages, marital affairs, repetitive fights over small things, feelings of disconnection and much more. If you are wanting to improve the connection with your partner, we can offer you the support and practical tools you need to successfully rekindle the romance in your relationship.

How we can help!

When a couples’ bond is not secure, they can easily be triggered or threatened. When your partner becomes critical of you or shuts you down, a pattern of behaviour can evolve which can create fights that never seem to get resolution. Nothing is more important in our lives than our relationships and therapy can be useful at any stage. Whether you’re at the beginning stages of a relationship, starting a new chapter in your partnership (for example, the introduction of children can create a myriad of new challenges), or you’re struggling with maintaining communication with a long-term partner through sexual intimacy or a differing set of fundamental beliefs, all of these are reasons why partners seek out to seek out couples / marriage counselling.

Most issues that arise between a couple start small and escalate until they get resolved. Couples shouldn’t wait until they are in full-blown crisis mode before they consider therapeutic intervention. Rather than viewing therapy as the solution to crisis, look at it as an integral aspect of a healthy and happy life.


If you are in an escalating abusive or violent relationship, it is important to get help from experienced professionals who can guide you. The most important thing - especially if children are involved - is your safety.

Our gentle approach endeavors to help couples in the following ways:

Learn new strategies to help you and your partner build and maintain a healthy relationship.

Help you navigate your relationship challenges.

Whether you are dealing with normal issues or something more serious, therapy can help you and your partner learn new communication skills and develop different strategies to solve problems, which will make life easier and happier, and your relationship stronger.
