'Intimate relationships are attachment bonds. Distressed relationships have insecure bonds. Couple's therapy addresses the security of the bond and the partner's ability to be engaged, accessible and responsive to each other.' My web site describes how I work at http://coupletherapyaustralia.com and there you will find resources for relationship self-help.
After 40 years working for psychological intimacy I have become exclusively, a couples therapist. I came to realise how few of the issues presented to counsellors/therapists are not better assisted and producing more robust changes when a significant other also attends. The research now confirms it. None more importantly than couple and family issues where an individual therapy may be harmful to the relationship. Not surprisingly this is also true of depression and anxiety.

'Our attachments are so powerful that our brains code them as “safety.” Any perceived distance or separation in our close relationships is interpreted as danger because losing the connection to a loved one jeopardises our sense of security. Secure attachment soothes and comforts; offers a safe haven; promotes trust in self and other and openness to new experiences, risk taking and experimenting. It promotes affect regulation and integration.' Sue Johnson

I love and am proud of who I have become - forged, as it were, by circumstance and the kindness of strangers....
