Nurturing Connections in Relationship Therapy


Relationships, the core of our human experience, should be intricate dances of communication, understanding, and love. Consider John Bowlby's Attachment Theory - we start out in life needing adult's support in order to survive and hopefully thrive! Our early relationships inevitably have impact on our adult relationships - professional, friendly and romantic relationships.


Relationship therapy offers adults a guiding light to navigate the complexities of their connections, strengthening bonds and fostering deeper understanding. It can help couples navigate their relationship through challenging times, life events, strengthening connection or helping them co-parent or separate.


What is Relationship Therapy?

Relationship therapy is a type of counselling specifically designed for couples, co-parents or adults in romantic partnerships. It provides a safe space for people to discuss issues, understand each other's perspectives, and work together to strengthen their bond.
