Relationship therapy supports you to find a happy, healthy, healing kind of love.
And really, who doesn’t want that? If you’ve been through a divorce or separated from a long-term partner, it might feel completely unrealistic. Your belief in “happily ever after” has taken a beating and as much as you’d love to find Mr(s) Right, you’re also feeling like maybe there’s something wrong with you, that you’re just meant to always be alone or end up with someone who hurts you.
I’ve been there. It’s a painful place to be. And it’s not the end of your story.
discovering who you are & what you have to give
Happy, successful romantic relationships are made when both partners are willing and able to give and take and are both able to be respectful and kind to each other. If you’re relying on a romantic relationship to fix you, you’re likely to be disappointed. When you’ve had difficult trusting people or asking for what you need, relationship therapy can support you in taking the time you need to heal yourself so you don’t need your partner to heal you. Then when you meet the right partner for you, you’re able to be open enough to give and receive the love you both deserve.
Stopping unhelpful relationship patterns
Do you find yourself starting a new relationship promising yourself that this time you won’t get insecure but a couple of months in, you’re checking your partner’s phone and feeling suspicious whenever they go out?
Have you been called crazy in previous relationships and now feel determined to prove your ex wrong?
My clients’ lives change when they realise that their “crazy” behaviours have a purpose. (One of my favourite ever quotes is “If something you’re doing seems crazy, look closer, it makes sense.) Once they know why they respond in relationships the way they do, they are more easily able to make better choices and become the partner they want to be (and I can help you do this too).
Setting healthy and appropriate boundaries.
We all come into relationships bringing all kinds of baggage and all sorts of beliefs about how relationships should be. What constitutes cheating? Should you get a girls/boys night out? How do you negotiate traditional household roles in modern society?
Relationship therapy helps you to clarify what it is you want from your relationship and gives you the tools to discuss your differences with your partner without ending up in argument after argument.
I can’t wait to help you on the path to having the happy, healthy romantic relationship you’ve dreamed of.
