“One of the most precious things you should always preserve in a friendship and in love is your own difference”
John O’ Donohue
In Couples Therapy, I combine behavioural approaches to relationship enhancement
(such as learning how to listen and communicate, how to set appropriate boundaries,
how to argue constructively and fight fairly, how to enhance pleasure and intimacy,
and how to turn conflicts into solutions) with a psychodynamic investigation which
helps both partners understand how their past experiences may contribute to the
types of attractions and conflicts which arise in their adult relationships.
In addition to couples therapy sessions, couples are given exercises to practice at
home to deepen their understanding and practice of the ideas discussed.
