Yes it can. Many couples struggle with communicating or dealing with the demands of everyday life. We often ignore these thoughts with the hope that things will get better. However, our relationships don’t improve unless we work on them and talk about the difficulties. Having a space where you can both talk openly can provide your relationship with the spark it needs for you to reconnect.
Our experienced therapists are here to help you confront the things you are struggling with. It is our job to provide a space that is safe, caring and non-judgemental, where we can think about your concerns.
Anxiety is a common challenge that people face. Worrying or feeling anxious can have an impact on your health, create problems in your personal relationships, and impact your ability to focus at work. Having a space to think and understand your difficulties can help you develop mechanisms to cope and manage your stress.
I am experiencing a lack of energy and interests with irritability and unhappiness. What is wrong?
You could be experiencing depression. Depression can have a serious impact on how you feel about yourself and experience the world around you. Daily activities and duties can become overwhelming or uninteresting, and can affect your sleep and eating patterns.
Therapy can help you work through the causes of depression and provide you with tools to cope with your difficulties.
Not at all.
Therapy is a great way to raise concerns, improve the quality of your life, enhance interpersonal relationships and personal growth. We all have questions about the purpose of life and where we are going; and therapy can help you understand your life’s journey and make it more fulfilling.
As we begin to find our feet in life, questions around where we are or where we should be going can become a very real concern. You may be in a job or career that is wrong for you or simply missing the opportunities that are available.
Therapy can help provide guidance and help you think more deeply about what you want to achieve in your life.
Therapy can help you understand the connection between your mind and body. Patients who can understand what they are going through emotionally and physically can learn how to cope with illness.
Therapy is for everyone. You may find yourself in a crisis with no one to talk to you, or just simply want to understand yourself more deeply. Having a space to think, where you are not judged, can be extremely helpful and can allow you to observe the patterns in your life that may be repeating and causing you difficulty.
Every person can benefit from having another person provide perspective on a situation or an issue which can help you achieve a more integrated life.
