From Relationship Ruts to Quality Connections

The way we were

If you're reading this, chances are you may be wondering about the future of your relationship. Perhaps you are having trouble recovering from an affair, or are just finding it hard to connect the way you used to. Maybe the in-laws are making things difficult or different attitudes about money are getting in the way. Relationship challenges can often leave us feeling a wide range of emotions - bored, lonely, afraid, frustrated, hopeless, exhausted - the list is endless. Sometimes they even make us feel like failures.

Do you want a relationship like you had in the beginning when you seemed to understand each other and instinctively knew how to be in the relationship? Do you want a way to work out relationship disagreements and difficulties without spiraling into conflict and disconnection? Do you want to experience mutual respect and support with each of you knowing your relationship is of primary importance to the other?

What's getting in the way?

Relationship hurdles can include:

  • A lack of communication or intimacy with your partner
  • Insufficient sexual chemistry
  • A feeling that you have nothing in common
  • Control or manipulation issues
  • Shadows from the past
  • Boundary violations
  • Disrespect
  • Dishonesty

You can turn this around

Did you know that the very things that seem to be pulling your relationship apart can actually become the gateways to bring your relationship back together?

That may seem counterintuitive, but there is a process for changing our perception of the experiences that seem to threaten a relationship, and transform them into the bond that creates a strong and loving connection.

An invitation

You are invited to discover the surprisingly beautiful reality that lies hidden underneath our behaviours and the behaviours of our relationship partner. That discovery can transform our understanding of ourselves, our partner, and our relationship. From that place, new ways of being in the relationship, of connection and interaction, can seem to happen almost on their own, turning partnership lead into relationship gold.

As a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, I draw from modalities including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Imago Therapy that have been scientifically proven through a substantial body of research to help up to 75% of couples move from distress to recovery and help approximately 90% enjoy significant improvements, even two years after therapy.
