Are you wanting to connect deeper to your partner and create a secure intimate bond that restores love and connection?
Perhaps you have already reached a crisis in your relationship and don’t know how to get back on track? Then couples counselling is for you. The most fascinating aspect of relationships is how they can mirror our deepest wounds and attachment needs. When a new pattern of emotional vulnerability is established, safe secure connection is possible. Attachment needs are recognised and can be met, old wounds are healed, and deep intimacy is restored.
My work with couples counselling centres around attachment theory and the Emotionally Focused Therapy model developed by Dr. Sue Johnson. A large part of this work is built on understanding how we are wired biologically to need connection and belonging with our loved one, yet can choose to sabotage the connection when we fear that connection may be under threat. Understanding how we do this and why we do this, helps to change relationship dynamics so new relational patterns of intimacy are created and sustained.
This work requires commitment from both partners to attend regular, frequent sessions, and to complete homework tasks in between sessions centred around applying insights and principles learned in each session. A standard length of 18-24 sessions is required for this work, with options to tailor a package suitable to your needs.
