I believe that couples come together due to powerful internal forces which are not always conscious to them. They can run into problems when these forces collide. More often than not, their relationships can be strengthened so that the positive factors that brought them together in the first place can keep them together.
I use a combination of Imago techniques and emotionally focused couples therapy to help couples communicate better and gain deeper, more fulfilling understanding and acceptance of each other. This involves uncovering and understanding lessons learned in one’s family of origin and learning to talk about those often unwritten expectations derived from those experiences. These lessons are then applied to your current relationship difficulties.
