Build a rich and meaningful partnership
Couples therapy and marriage counselling
Couples therapy and marriage counselling will help you understand and handle conflicts in your partnership. A partnership is naturally put under stress during the course of time. It may result in increased conflicts, jealousy, infidelity, work related stress, and affect the intimacy in the relationship.
Right or wrong?
We do not try to figure out who is right or wrong. People see and experience things differently. Being “right” or “wrong” is potentially one of the most toxic forms of arguments – because there will always be a looser (and a winner). Focus in on what you want the relationship to be about. In therapy we help you develop a focus and relationship that is more meaningful than being “right”.
What are your needs and what do you want to invest
In the process of therapist the couples therapist helps make room for both parties to express experiences, opinions, desires and needs. The goal is not to change the other but to develop a curiosity and understanding about what drives and motivates self in the partnership.
Through understanding it is possible for each partner individually and collectively to set a path and take ownership for the investment in changes that facilitate a move towards the desired partnership.
Psychoeducation and new behaviours
A session will often involve psycho-education and sometimes there will be room to explore new behaviours after the first session. Psychoeducation is a learning to understand and make use of normal psychological processes that may hinder or faciliatete change.

Nothing left to build on?
Couples therapy may also be a tool to clarify if there is the strength and motivation to continue the partnership. If it is not there, the consultations may be used to move the partnership to an ending with greater understanding and accept.
