Relationship issues


It is common for couples to experience difficulties in their relationship or marriage, which can result in each individual in the couple feeling unhappy, isolated, angry, bored or resentful. Going through a transition in the relationship, such as having children, or living busy lives, managing careers, not finding time for each other can affect the quality of the relationship of a couple, as well as their intimacy and sexual life.


The most common problems that couples experience are:


  • Difficulties with or lack of intimacy.
  • Communication problems in a relationship, including frequent arguments, blaming, conflict.
  • Differences in sexual desire within the relationship. It is perhaps one of the most common sexual problems with couples. 
  • Sexless relationship. Some couples lose the desire to be sexual with each other. It can be caused by various factors including living busy lives, having children, getting older, feeling stuck or bored within the relationship. 
  • Healing after the disclosure of infidelity. Infidelity has a tremendous negative impact on relationships, marriage and sexual lives.. The healing process and the re-building of trust and compassion can be long and challenging, but it is possible.
  • Receiving or dealing with a spouse's diagnosis of severe or terminal illness. This can be one of the biggest stressors in a relationship, and couples often need support to go through this transition.
  • Ending a relationship in a constructive way. Couples therapy can also help with ending a relationship. Ending a relationship in a meaningful and therapeutic way, with understanding, compassion and empathy, is important and a great gift of love to oneself.


Relationship problems can be explored in individual therapy, couples therapy, group therapy, intensive couples workshops and retreats. We work with individuals and couples of all sexual orientations, gender identities and sexualities.



Body Image


Poor and distorted body image often affects one's sexual life, social life and relationships. Body image issues can include frequent preoccupation with one's body image, size and shape to the extent of controlling their life, as well as other self-destructive behaviours, such as excessive exercise, dieting, juicing, detoxing, avoiding love, experiencing intimacy and sexuality issues.


Body image issues can be explored in individual therapy, group therapy, intensive workshops and retreats.
