At Reconnect Couples Therapy we work with a wide range of issues. The following are some of the most common, but we will work with you on whatever the problems are.
Sexual intimacy is much more than the act of having sex, and encompasses matters of trust, vulnerability and exclusivity. Opening yourself up to the needs of a partner whilst simultaneously having your own needs truly felt.
Some amount of conflict is a natural part of an intimate relationship. Handled negatively, it can lead to hurt and a lack of emotional connection, but it can also act as a source of insight and relational growth.
Individual or joint financial situations can be a major source of difficulty within a relationship. Finances themselves can be the problem, or other underlying issues can manifest in conflict over money. Reconnect can help you explore your relationship with money and how it impacts on your relationship.
You may have experienced trauma in your life, either as a child or an adult. This can have a detrimental effect on a relationship, of which you may or may not be clearly aware. Reconnect will work with you to gain insight, deepen your understanding, and bring you closer together.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) offers a comprehensive process for healing distressed relationships. It has become one of the most clearly defined and practically proven approaches in the field of couples therapy.
Communication and intimacy are inseparable. Recognising how your partner communicates, learning how to understand and respond in kind, will help you to move through difficulties and enable your relationship to continue to grow.
