Couples Therapy

Couples therapy or marriage counselling is often recommended for couples that feel that they need to resolve issues that are impacting on their relationship, and who as a result feel that they are struggling with relationship stress. The therapy serves to improve communication between individuals within a relationship, and to understand any issues that are causing negative or complex emotions. Couples therapy is useful for dealing with a number of issues, including problematic power dynamics, problems with intimacy, sexual dissatisfaction, emotional abuse and infidelity. The therapy addresses many facets of the relationship, and often uncovers issues that were not previously processed or dealt with, which can be very helpful, particularly if a couple is considering separation or a divorce.
