Couples in Crisis

Sadly, many people make the call for help when the relationship has deteriorated into crisis. They are often emotionally escalated, angry, fearful, and confused. When a couple reaches this state, it is almost impossible for them to communicate in a helpful way.

At this point, a skilled practitioner can make a real difference to the outcome of the issues brought to the therapy. The creation of a safe space where the couple can express themselves, listen and feel heard will calm the emotional turmoil; and make way for a conversation to begin.

The work begins with this containment and facilitation of communication which can then develop into a more thorough exploration of the reasons why the couple feels so desperately unhappy.  The process can then continue with a look at the present and how the couple can go forward.
