Couples Therapy

“Holding hands is a promise to one another that, just for a moment, the two of you don’t have to face the world alone”.

  • Do you and your partner get caught in the same old argument over and over, again and again?
  • Do you feel distant or disconnected?
  • Do you feel criticized, nagged, misunderstood or dismissed?Do you have trouble talking to each other?
  • Does your relationship lack affection, emotional intimacy or sex?
  • Have you have lost trust in your partner?
  • Have you been betrayed by an affair?
  • Do you no longer feel the spark you once had or long for a spark that was never there?

If you are experiencing any of these or other problems in your relationship, you are not alone.

Relationships with significant others can be the source of much joy and satisfaction, and they can also be the source of sorrow and pain. When we feel distant or disconnected from those we love the most, we become distressed. This leads to conflict, disagreements, detachment and isolation.

Couples often complain about difficulties with communication, a lack of closeness, not having time for each other, parenting concerns, no longer trusting their partner, and general unhappiness and disillusionment with the relationship. At The Brandywine Center, we know how important your relationship is and provide effective therapy for distressed couples using a variety of approaches.

Watch this brief video “From Cradle to Grave” to understand more about our need for connection and the distress that ensues when our loved one is not responsive to our needs.

Couples therapy helps you to strengthen or restore your loving connection with your partner or spouse by increasing your experience of acceptance, belonging, comfort, and safety with each other. As this happens, you’ll feel more confident in how much you matter to each other, in your ability to effectively solve problems and communicate, and in your ability to lovingly work together to face future challenges.
