Like any intimate relationship, romantic partnerships often encounter stumbling blocks and obstacles along the way. After all, most see their relationships as being for life, and life’s changes have a tremendous impact on both of the individuals as well as the quality of their relationship with each other. Even the most loving of couples have disagreements or engage in cycles of negative or unproductive behaviour. If you or your partner is feeling unfulfilled in your relationship, take the time to seek out help. Couple therapy from Toronto, registered psychological associate Esther Benbihy can help any couple to improve their relationship and rekindle the intimacy that couples crave.
IS COUPLE THERAPY RIGHT FOR YOU?
Relationship problems stem from a number of different causes, some from unresolved feelings from past experiences and some from the stress of current situations.
Esther has worked with couples who are dealing with:
- Constant Conflict
- Communication Problems
- Loss or Grief
- Trauma or Abuse
- Sexual Problems
- Intimacy Issues
- Life Changes
- Health Issues
Couple therapy is a judgement-free environment. Esther has worked with diverse clients from marriage therapy to cohabitating or dating couples to alternative relationships as well as LGBT couples. Whatever your unique situation, Esther provides client-focused therapy that is sensitive to the needs and differences of each individual within the partnership.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM COUPLE THERAPY
- An Empathetic Environment
Seeking couple therapy is often difficult for both partners. It takes an ability to acknowledge problems and a mutual desire for change and healing. Therapy can be uncomfortable for people who have never experienced it or are anxious about opening up to a relative stranger. One of Esther’s first priorities when starting therapy is to create a comfortable and safe environment that facilitates understanding through sharing of thoughts, feelings, and desires. Couple therapy is a judgement-free place for both partners to reach solutions by talking out their problems with a neutral, but empathetic party.
- A Tailored Approach
Esther’s approach to couple therapy depends upon the individual needs and characteristics of partners and their relationships. She utilizes techniques from cognitive behavioural, emotionally focused, Alderian, and psychodynamic therapies to help partners overcome their relationship difficulties.
- An In-Depth Exploration
Couple therapy focuses and examines deep-rooted causes, uncovers feelings and motivations, and finds long-term solutions over a number of sessions
- Lifelong Changes
The benefits of couple therapy last for a lifetime. Sessions aim at mending and healing your relationship through facilitating communication, learning conflict resolution techniques, increasing trust and respect, changing habits, breaking negative cycles and patterns, improving sexual relationships, creating new positive emotional experiences and connections, and fostering intimacy.
Couple therapy from Esther helps partners to overcome past or recurring obstacles, learn coping techniques to use during future disputes, and rebuild a partnership that will provide meaning and fulfillment for both partners.
