When to consult?

You get stuck in recurrent patterns, and you feel you lack tools to deal with it differently? Your relationship has become conflict-ridden, and you feel disconnected, misunderstood, like there is a wall between you and your partner?

Mostly, couples turn to a professional because they have “communication problems”. What lies underneath is the dynamic between two people that holds them hostage and compels them to repeat unproductive cycles of interaction or unhealthy attachment patterns, also called “vicious circles”.  

The couple therapy in Barcelona is a tailor-made course of several sessions, where you are invited to explore your dynamic as a couple, identify its dysfunction or unproductiveness, learn to disentangle it and find new ways to interact and new personal response to deal with conflicts.
