Sometimes in a relationship we don’t feel emotionally safe anymore. We grow apart. We stop communicating effectively. We struggle with intimacy. Maybe this is what’s happening in your relationship. We want to help restore that emotional safety, increase communication and bring you two closer in intimacy.
In Edmonton couples counselling, we use two different forms of therapy. We begin with tools from Gottman Counselling. This form of therapy is the one of the foremost couples counselling models world wide. Research has shown that the tools that are taught can be highly effective in repairing the relationship.These tools begin to open communication and decrease tension in the relationship. The relationship begins to heal and strengthen.
Using tools paves the way to open communication which then allows a emotional safe base to be built.
As tensions start to decrease in the relationship, connection and a sense of emotional safety in the relationship is then focused on with tools from Emotion Focused Couples Counselling. At the heart of couples counselling we believe it is important for couples to build a strong emotional base. When a strong emotional base is built, a couple can withstand storms that may arise during their relationship.
The areas that we work in include:
- Affair Recovery
- Communication Difficulties
- Conflict Resolution
- Emotional Abuse
- Growing apart
- Separation & Divorce
- Sex & Intimacy
