DS Psychology Group are passionate and dedicated to improving the quality of people’s relationships. We offer specialised family and relationship counselling designed to increase emotional intimacy, personal satisfaction and overall connectedness with each other.
Our psychologists understand the importance of forming a positive working alliance with each individual, to develop and share an understanding of the relationship concerns and work together to develop practical and positive ways of changing relationship patterns.
Counselling can help a couple to
- Understand the patterns in their relationship
- Identify the issues preventing a healthy and happy relationship
- Re discover emotional feelings and increase emotional intimacy
- Explore practical solutions to solvable issues
- To improve communication and honesty
- Deal with gridlock or unsolvable issues
- Improve negotiation of needs and expectations
- Identify boundaries and what one is willing (or not willing) to do for the relationship future
Our psychologists do not judge who is right or wrong, nor instruct or persuade on whether people should leave or stay together.
The relationship therapy is designed to understand the relationship problems, recognise the relationship strengths, identify positive solutions and explore people’s willingness and commitment to improve the relationship overall.
