If your confidence has been knocked following the breakdown of a relationship and you are struggling to accept your new reality. Maybe the relationship with your child has broken down and you are trying to find a resolution. Perhaps you are the child and you don’t feel that your parent/s understand you and you are longing for a better relationship with them. Therapy and coaching could be the answer. Relationships are complicated and are essential to our well-being so it’s paramount that we learn ways of building and maintaining them through talking and processing our thoughts and feelings around them.

People who embark on a psychoanalytically informed therapy attend for a variety of reasons. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, stress, shame or low self esteem, what is important is that the problems have been around for some time and despite our best efforts do not improve by trying to address them on our own. This leaves us feeling stuck and alone, with increasing symptoms and frustrations. The aim of this type of therapy is to not only to help with the conscious symptoms, but to help develop understanding and awareness of what lies beneath the symptoms, enriching our lives and relationships, enabling change.

Therapy can give you tools to navigate through life's up and downs and can help strengthen your sense of self. I believe that our perceptions of our own brokenness can be viewed differently. That our flaws are what makes us unique, beautiful and wonderfully human.

In my experience the most effective ways to deal with emotional and psychological difficulties problems are to address the underlying causes. This often involves understanding how you got to where you are now, including the impact others have had on you. Finding ways of improving your relationships is also often central to being able to make changes and feeling more able to deal with the challenges you face.

Marriage Counselling

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by teaching couples concrete skills to communicate with one another and solve disagreements in healthy ways. A trained mental health professional works with both members of a couple to explore difficulties the couple may be having and helps them develop skills to address these matters. Couples who don’t have any difficulties but want to prepare for marriage may develop skills for the future.

How long does marriage counseling typically last?

Marriage counseling is a short-term form of therapy; the process may last between four and eight sessions. Other forms of relationship guidance from mental health professionals, such as couples therapy, are longer lasting, may focus on the past rather than just the present, and are tailored to the individual couple and their emotions, history, and patterns in the relationship. Couples therapy often lasts for 12 weeks or longer.

Is marriage counseling effective?

Marriage counseling helps many couples develop relationship skills that may not have been acquired or tested in a relationship; partners may be better able to communicate and address conflict following counseling. However, there are many different forms of marriage counseling, and this form of counseling does not have as strong an evidence base as other modalities such as couples therapy.

Is marriage counseling effective if only one partner wants to go?

Yes, marriage counseling can still be effective if one partner convinces the other to engage in the process. Of course, whether counseling is effective depends on the couple’s commitment to work on their relationship; however, the short-term, skills-based nature of marriage counseling makes it a relatively easy “ask” of a partner, and the hesitant individual may see its value once counseling begins.
