Relationship Therapy

All human relationships are complex and require considerable effort to sustain in the long term. Yet, successful relationships are fundamental to our well-being, significantly influence our overall life satisfaction and happiness – even our life expectancy!

Many people I work with experience relationship difficulties. When we struggle with our significant relationships, other aspects of life often suffer too. I frequently hear about dissatisfaction, conflict, poor communication, and emotional distress within relationships.  

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) offers a practical and reliable approach for addressing relationship issues. It helps individuals become more present, attentive, and supportive. Unlike some passive approaches to couples’ therapy, CBT actively develops the attitudes, skills, behaviours, and emotional responses found in fulfilling and resilient relationships.

At The Cove, I work with individuals, couples, and families to enhance their relationships. A key element of successful relationships is psychological flexibility—the ability to view situations from different perspectives. I support the development of psychological flexibility to help individuals become more mindful of alternative viewpoints.

Good communication is vital for healthy relationships. I help clients improve their listening and communication skills, enhancing their ability to solve problems together and resolve conflicts. This fosters resilience in relationships.

Relationship sessions at The Cove acknowledge each person’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as their values, goals for the future, expectations and perceptions. This builds a shared future for a couple based on empathy, kindness, trust and respect. These positive feelings create a sense of safety in a relationship, again making it more resilient to future challenges

If you’re looking to strengthen your relationships and build a more fulfilling life, let’s work together at The Cove.
