Couple and Family Therapy

Written by 

 

Human beings do not always live in peace with themselves. When there are two persons living together - brought up in different families, each one with his unique personal history, unique perspective of life, unique expectations from family life and unique "blueprints" for child rearing – that from a certain moment become a couple for the rest of their life, sleep in one bed, raise their children together, have to make big and small financial decisions - no doubt, tensions and misunderstandings are inevitable.

If not solved, such tensions mount up, rise in intensity, and poison the relationship. In the domestic "Civil Wars" of this kind - there are no winners. Spouses, the children and even parents become victims, where hate and blaming take the place of love and mutual respect.

 

Second marriages are even more complicated: children from previous marriages, relationship with ex-partners and their parents, complicated financial obligations.

 

When tensions begin, an experienced therapist is sometimes able to resolve the crisis, to lower and put out the flame of hatred, and to prevent the destructive processes.
