Couples Therapy Halifax
Often people learn habitual ways of relating from their childhood experiences. These experiences may lead people to react to their partner in unhelpful ways; for instance, some people learn they always need to be right, apologizing is a sign of weakness, or they always need to have the last word. Other people’s childhood experiences may lead them to avoid conflict at all costs. The therapists at Tod Augusta Scott Family Therapy have worked for many years to help couples interrupt their habitual reactions to each other and replace them with responses that lead them to respectful, caring relationships.
Sometimes other factors like ADHD, depression or anxiety can affect our relationships. Read more about our ADHD therapy, depression therapy and anxiety therapy here.
Marriage Counselling Halifax, Nova Scotia
Couples often need support to recover from affairs, either physical or emotional or both and seek marriage counselling. Tod Augusta Scott Family Therapy’s therapists help the partner who had the affair to create a plan to ensure it doesn’t happen again and to begin to repair the harm they have caused. At the same time, an affair may indicate some unaddressed dissatisfaction within the current relationship. The process of recovery often involves resolving these outstanding issues.
Conflict and dissatisfaction within a relationship may be caused by different expectations concerning sex. Those expectations can often be influenced by one or both partners’ past experiences of trauma. Therapists help people move through these issues so couples can have the sex life they want.
Differing financial styles may also contribute to conflict within relationships. Tod Augusta Scott Family Therapy’s therapists can help couples define their shared financial goals, as well as cope with the loss of employment, addiction issues and other financial challenges. Anxiety can effect your ability to work and we can address that as well.
Our therapists also help couples resolve the conflict over sharing the domestic load. Such conversations often include examining the amount of work each person does inside and outside the home, the number of leisure time hours each person has, and the care of children. Our therapists help couples work through conversations about expectations of the quality of their living space, as well as discussing what makes each person feel respected and appreciated in the relationship.
