Relationship Therapy

During the conversations, your stories will be listened to carefully. Those stories may differ. How can we come to a new story that works for both of you? If the relationship is not going well, you can still care a lot about each other. And in the latter lies the power needed to get out. In the treatment, various techniques from systemic and couplestherapy are used. But it is especially good to look at what you want and need.

Relationship or marital distress can heavily constrict your quality of life. This effect is even more dramatic when children are involved and the whole family is affected. Do you want to find out where things go wrong in your relationship? Do you want to rediscover the love that somehow got lost along the way? Then couples therapy might be the right thing for you! After a successful couple therapy, a lot of couples even experience more intimacy and satisfaction than ever before.

Relationship/couples counselling are talking therapies, which aim to help you to explore and understand your feelings and behaviours. We’ll be piecing together a story that both fit your separate stories and this is a way of processing your experience. This can help you to move forward in a positive direction.

Sometimes we come across (destructive) patterns that just can’t seem to change. The stress of being able to support your family, to get through the month, to keep your job, etc. puts a lot of pressure on relationships. Sometimes the stress spreads to the relationship after an traumatic period. Sometimes we get too caught up in running a household with children. Sometimes it just happens.

Family Therapy

The practice offers family therapy. This is also referred to as family or system therapy.

Are there conflicts in the family, which permanently disturb a harmonious togetherness? Does your child have sudden difficulty in school? Are there people in the family who do not want to talk to each other anymore?

When children or adolescents are suffering, behave erratically or develop symptoms (e.g. staying away from school, abdominal pain or bedwetting), a family therapy may be helpful.

From a systemic point of view  “behavioral problems” of children and adolescents are often understandable only in the context of the whole family system and can be dissolved with the help of  recognizing patterns, loyalties, coalitions etc… In this sense it is possible that a child, whose parents do not speak to each other anymore, starts to behave problematic in school. The consequence of the child’s behavior often is that the parents have to go back into a dialogue in order to solve the problem.

Family therapy is also suitable for families in which the children are grown up, and for unresolved conflicts between the generations. Systemic family therapy pays attention to what happens between the individual family members, how they react to each other and what patterns and rules have emerged. Individual members of a family control the behavior of other members, and the reaction of the other members again influences their behavior. Family therapy sometimes is conducted with the whole family and sometimes with only a few family members, or in varying combinations, depending on who is actively involved in the subject or affected by it, or may contribute something to its solution.

Neurological disorders also involve relational aspects that are just as important as the disorder itself. Family therapy is a proven effective intervention.
