Relationships, like everything worthwhile, require hard work, which is why we offer couples therapy. Sometimes, no matter how strong and loving, no matter how much you try, they can be too challenging for you to work on without help.
Our psychologists and therapists have successfully helped many people in relationships of every nature through couples therapy, so we know that whatever issues your relationship is facing, we can help you. Individual therapy or couple therapy may provide a supportive environment to address your issues.
Our psychologists and therapists will provide you with a non-judgemental sounding board to help you gain perspective on your relationship by safely exploring issues, needs and emotions that may be difficult to manage without an objective trained professional present.
Our psychologists and therapists will help you clearly define the issues you are facing and the positive outcomes you wish to achieve, providing you with skillful support and tools to help you develop skills to improve the communication, health and vitality of your relationship.
We won’t take sides, tell you what to do or decide on an outcome for you.
If you are faced with any of the following issues, you will benefit from seeing one of our psychologists or therapists in couples therapy:
- Communication breakdown
- There is unresolved conflict that persists
- Difficult conversations are avoided
- There is a loss of loving feelings
- There is a lack of respect
- Trust has been broken
- The relationship is not made a priority
- Your lives seem to be going in different directions
- Desire between partners diminishes
- Expectations have changed
- There is an imbalance of power
- One person feels controlled
- There is abuse in the relationship
If you are faced with the following issues regarding your sexual relationship, you will benefit from seeing our experienced Clinical Sexologist, Naomi Hutchings, who has extensive experience and specialised training to help you find a way of improving your sex life:
- Differences in desire
- Low sexual arousal
- Pain during intercourse
- Premature ejaculation
- Communication about sex
- Fears regarding sex
- Impact of past trauma on your sexuality
Our preference is to speak with you because that helps us pair you with the most appropriate psychologist while avoiding a number of emails going back and forth. However, we are happy to communicate with you using either method. And for your convenience, we are here in person after hours until 9pm Monday to Thursday, and on Saturday until 2pm. We look forward to hearing from you.
