Couples and Family
One of the most common problems in relationships is communication. Sometimes it is an accumulation of not being able to say what you feel or need. Couples Therapy provides a safe place where each person is heard, and issues are explored in a non-judgemental and supportive environment. When relationships break down it can be difficult to know where to start the therapist provides independent and non-biased support. Each person is encouraged to explore their needs and expectations in a way which promotes good communication and provides the skills to move through obstacles to a better way of being. This enables each person to experience being heard and understood and in turn work with each other to make the necessary changes and adjustments to bring about a more loving relationship.
If the relationship is gone past repair the Psychotherapist works with the couple to bring the relationship to a painless as a possible end. This can also be done in mediation.
Couples Therapy not just for husband and wives or partners it also works with other relationships like parent/child and siblings.
Psychotherapy provides a safe and controlled environment where anger issues can be explored. Every human being experience anger, it is part of being human. It is a very important emotion and informs us that all is not well. Sometimes this can be as a result of not being able to speak up for ourselves, or not being able to say no. If ignored it can build up like a volcano and erupt when least expected. Anger can be addressed and managed in a way that allows us to be our authentic self. When anger is not dealt with it can destroy relationships and lives.

Sessions take place on a weekly basis for one hour. The amount of sessions needed is determined by the client in conjunction with the Therapist. All sessions are strictly confidential.
The type of Psychotherapy and Counselling is Humanistic and Integrative.
Haven Psychotherapy and Counselling believes that persons are self-regulating, self - actualising and self - transcendent beings, responsible for themselves; and while recognising the tragic dimensions of human existence, it emphasis the ability of persons to be beyond themselves and realise their nature more fully.
