Relationship & Couples Therapy

"Relationships are like houses: without a good foundation, they'll crumble. When a light bulb goes out, you don't buy a new house,  you change the bulb. When faucet drips, you don't start mopping the floor before you fix the leak, in other words, no matter how much digging t takes, it's important to get to the root of a problem" Christina Lauren - Author of The Honey Don't List

Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy

 Individual or Couples Therapy can help you!

Every relationship experiences times when things don’t run smoothly, but if your relationship is regularly running into problems and causing issues, Daybreak’s expert therapists can help. We offer sessions for individuals as well as couples, using compassion and cutting edge techniques to resolve relationship issues. So if it’s just you who’s keen to seek some answers, or you and your partner are ready to consult a therapist together, we can help.

 The Importance of Relationships

Life is so much easier when we’re getting on well with our significant others. We feel better able to face any challenges that our day to day lives might pose us. But when these key relationships hit rocky patches or break down, the strong foundations on which our happiness is built begin to crumble and our mental and physical wellbeing is adversely affected.

 The experienced therapists here at Daybreak, each of whom is educated and trained to Masters level, are here to help you rediscover the equilibrium you need in your life. Whether your marriage is facing difficulties, or you’re adjusting to life as a recent divorcee, or you’re looking to resolve relationship problems within your family, we can provide the compassionate support and expert solutions you need.

 Individual Relationship Therapy

Strong and loving relationships are vital for our emotional wellbeing. Our quality of life often depends on the quality of our relationships. And maintaining successful romantic and family relationships is something that takes time, skill and effort to get right. You have to work at it, and therapy is a great way of firstly showing that you are willing to make changes to improve things, but also a way to enhance your capacity to display your openness and vulnerability, both vital traits of successful relationships.

 Daybreak relationship therapy can help romance flourish and fix the cracks that can appear in family connections. How you use the sessions is up to you. Perhaps you are seeking to explore the impact your past is having on your present in terms of how you interact with others? Our therapists can also help you discover what you need to do to rekindle your passion and find a way forward with your spouse, partner or significant other. Whatever your goal, you’ll find your Daybreak therapist will play an important role in improving how you connect with those you care about most.

Couples Therapy

If you and your partner are ready to work together with a third party to resolve your relationship issues, Daybreak couples therapy is for you.

 There could be any number of reasons why your relationship has reached the stage where you both feel you need to seek help and set new goals. Maybe you are experiencing intimacy issues, or your mutual trust has been shaken by infidelity, or you’re not communicating as openly and honestly as you need to.

 Whatever the issues, ignoring them won’t make them magically disappear and can actually worsen the problem leading to more resentment, more conflict, and more feelings of shame or guilt. It’s strongly advisable to not let issues fester, but instead seek outside help. And Couples Therapy at Daybreak will give you a safe environment in which to explore your issues and find solutions.

 How Relationship Therapy  at Daybreak Works

As with all Daybreak therapies, the techniques we use and plans we create are all shaped by your unique circumstances. With one of our talented therapists assigned to meet your needs, evidence-based techniques will be used to rapidly get to the crux of the problems you’re having. Therapy sessions will then show you a structured way forward that will help you navigate out of where you are now and into the calmer, more emotionally content waters you desire.

 As forward thinking therapists, here at Daybreak we employ cutting edge science-based attachment techniques that lead to meaningful changes and stronger relationships. These include treatments such as:

·             Emotionally focused therapy

·             The Gottman Method

·             Ways to enhance intimacy

·             Improving communication

·             Discovering the crux of the problem

 Is relationship therapy expensive?

It’s always our goal here at Daybreak to help our clients resolve their relationship issues as swiftly as possible. But because each case is different, it’s impossible to say how long it will take to reach the desired conclusion. However, it’s important to know that the expertise of our therapists and the cutting edge nature of the techniques they use will lead to the quickest possible results. And remember, any relationship therapy is an investment in your future, a chance to learn skills and techniques that will stay with you for life.
