Being ‘In love’ is one of the most beautiful feelings that you can experience. But after a while, the ability to keep that feeling alive could be challenged. As time goes by you may neglect your relationship or begin to take it for granted. The spark is gone and, frustration and resentment could take place. You have forgotten that love is not something you strive to… it is a place you come from.
Therapy helps you figure out where you want to be as a couple, restore intimacy, trust and excitement. It gives you the safe environment to talk honestly and openly and to be heard and understood.
Whichever way the therapy process takes you, your understanding and awareness in regards to yourselves and your shared relationship will shift, improve or change.
Parent – Adult Child Relationship Therapy
When the children become adults the dynamics of the relationship with their parents inevitably evolves and transforms. However, not always these changes are driven by mutual understanding. Complications could arise in multiple areas of life. If the relationship already suffers with unresolved issues that could cause even more difficulties.
The therapy process offers exploration and solution without the need of both parties to be present in the same session. Discovering ways to establish and affirm the adult position for yourself in relation to your parents, forms the core of the treatment. If you are the parent, we explore better, healthier ways of engaging with your adult children.
In therapy we can work towards
Empathy and understanding
Progress can be achieved for both parties through clarity, mutual respect and adaptable techniques.
