Couples therapy

Couples therapy in a family setup

Couples therapy

A relationship goes through numerous phases during its life cycle, and it is obvious for it to have a few rough patches. The strength of a relationship is reflected in how the couples deal with tough times and move ahead. The lifestyle of the people, modern day thinking, every day pressures and life challenges have changed the pattern of thinking of people in respect to relationships. This has turned the statistics for divorce and marriage upside down. While divorce and separation is necessary in many cases, if the problems are not only circumstantial, but also irrecoverable and irreversible (and it impacts the whole family).

I believe that relationships should be given a chance, and that there are relationships (and whole families) that can be saved, if only the people involved take that first step and make that last ditch effort to save their relationship.

This is where couple therapy comes in. My approach towards couples therapy is oriented not only towards solving the problems the couple is facing with each other and their family members, but to revive the feeling of love and affection they have towards each other.

Do take that first step by finding a professional, experienced psychologist or counsellor to guide you through this process.
