My approach to helping couples is direct, compassionate and gets results
The difference in how I work is that I look at relationship conflict through the prism of personality differences instead of ‘problem behaviours’ or ‘skills deficits’.
I go to the heart of WHY each person is doing what they are doing, not just what they are doing. I look at the key themes in each person’s perspective, identifying each person’s core fears and how these core fears are being triggered in the relationship.
By helping to create deeper understanding and compassion, negative attitudes and patterns of behavior can be more quickly resolved and an openness to learning new skills is created.
I also offer pre-marital counseling to couples. Pre-marital counseling involves undertaking a detailed assessment of each partner’s personality style and using this information to provide essential context to both partners regarding their relationship.
