Leaves Shadow

Who is suited for couples therapy?

An introduction to the key elements

to Emotionally focused therapy:

  • YouTube

Couples therapy tends to have the greatest benefit for couples that want to remain together, but that are trapped in a dysfunctional pattern. Perhaps the same conflict keeps reappearing, where one turns silent and withdrawn and the other feels rejected and frustrated at the lack of connection.


Perhaps you live in a parallel, lonely cohabitation where you slowly grow apart in the daily grind.

Perhaps you have become silent and find it difficult to communicate. Perhaps you have even started to consider ending the relationship, without really wanting things to be over.

If this is the case, it is time to come in for counselling.

Most men prefer to sort out their own problems and fint it difficult to attend counselling sessions, but they are particularly welcome here.

If either of you have already decided to leave the relationship, it is better to seek help at Familievernkontoret.

Should your relationship issues stem from physical or psychological violence, you need to contact ATV or Familievernkontoret.

Leaves Shadow

– a cohabitation course

This is a cohabitation course particularly suited for couples that have been together long enough to have a familiar pattern of conflicts.

All couples are made up of two individuals. These will always have differences in personality and other dissimilarities that tend to remain fairly constant. This leads to a few conflicts or challenges that do not change. They cannot be resolved once and for all in the same way that we resolve one-time conflicts through constructive discussion and negotiation. Recent research suggests that the majority of cohabitation challenges are of the unresolvable variety.

The course emphasizes:

  • strengthening the sense of unity and everyday affection.

  • presenting strategies that can aid in conquering negative emotion, irritation, conflict and differences in personality.

  • an insight into the building blocks of a good relationship.

  • an insight into how to maintain passion and sexuality in long-term relationships.

Many couples can intuitively handle their differences. Some can even see them as a source of banter and a sustained curiosity in each other. For these couples, the differences arent perceived as a threat against the relationship, but rather as an opportunity to further their knowledge of each other and their sense of security, unity and intimacy.

The course is based primarily on research-backed information and systematic feedback from couples and counsellors.
