INTIMACY DEEPENS WHEN PARTNERS SHARE

THEIR MOST VULNERABLE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS WITH EACH OTHER

 

In order to open up to your partner and share yourself in such a vulnerable way, you must know that your partner is emotionally available to respond to your feelings and needs. You may not know how to reach out to your partner and your partner may not know how to support you. Or perhaps you have become stuck in your old and painful patterns, leaving you feeling closed and guarded.

 

If you sense that your partner is not accessible and engaged with you, you may respond by shutting down or pushing away (fight, flight). While this serves to protect you from immediate pain, it also leaves both partners feeling alone and disconnected. This damages and often ends, many otherwise loving relationships. However, you can break this cycle and learn to communicate with your partner. We create the space necessary for couples to identify primary emotions underneath the behaviors that fuel negative interaction cycles, whilst simultaneously enabling you and your partner to communicate empathically and strengthen trust and intimacy between one another. Some of the areas we focus on are:

  • ​Secure Love & Attachment

  • Effective Communication

  • Sexual Intelligence & Connection

  • Emotional Intimacy 

  • Love Language Evaluation & Appreciation

  • Conflict resolution

  • Relationship satisfaction

  • Interpersonal Trauma Resolution
