More About Integrated Way Couples and Marriage Counselling
Relationship distress results from perceived threats to basic adult needs for safety, security and closeness in relationships. Seemingly petty arguments that occur over and over again in a relationship generally stem from deeper needs for security and feeling understood. Working with Daniel teaches both partners how understand the needs and how to give them to each other. When working with couples, Daniel employs his training in Emotion focused couples therapy (EFT) and Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT).
Daniel’s approach to therapy for couples is highly practical. He helps by slowing things down, allowing a new, healthier conversation to emerge. As a therapist, he holds both partners accountable for the relationships, encouraging them to operate from the healthiest and most adult part of themselves so they can learn how to take care of themselves and each other. Couples develop an ‘owners manual’ for each other, in the words of Stan Tatkin, a significant influence on Daniel’s approach. When you work with Daniel you receive clear insight into the automatic behaviours you are operating from that don’t serve you or your relationship.
