Couples counselling – relationship in crisis

Time to time when facing challenges in everyday life couples’ communication gets stuck. The feeling of loneliness can be part of such a situation. When the relationship seems to be going downhill couples counselling can help you to get back on track.

In couples counselling we look at your relationship from both partner’s sides starting with the very beginning of your relationship. During the counselling you both will have space to communicate your feelings and hopes, which will make it easier for yourselves to understand your own and your partner’s needs.

The aim of couples counselling is to learn to listen and understand each other as well as train your skills to express yourself. Couples counselling will also help you to set clear relationship goals.

Couples counseling is suitable for couples who feel that their relationship is failing. All couples, including same-sex and nonmonogamous couples, will find a safe space in my counselling to work through their challenges.

Solmuja parisuhteessa® – couples counseling (Knots in relationship)

Solmuja parisuhteessa® -couples counselling was developed by Kataja ry. This couples counselling method relies on 8 to 10 appointments during which the couple focuses on the history, present and future of their relationship. The angle of view varies from one appointment to other. Together these angles build a baseline which can be used as a solid ground when solving the problem.

Solmuja parisuhteessa® -couples counselling requires engaged will to work between the appointments, too. There is material to read as well as homework to do regarding the subject of the appointments. Some of the exercises are made individually, some together as a couple.

Solmuja parisuhteessa® -couples counselling stresses the importance of the clear communication. Therefore improving these skills will be the main focus of the couples counselling.

The textbook “Solmu parisuhteessa – rakkauden mahdollisuus” used in the Solmuja parisuhteessa® method is currently only available in Finnish. So at least a basic knowledge of Finnish is required to work with this book. On the other hand the language used in counselling sessions is Finnish, German or English whichever is the most convenient for you. If you don’t feel confident with Finnish language, I also offer couples counselling with various elements of the Solmuja parisuhteessa® method.
