Welcome to Northside Gestalt Therapy

About Couples Therapy at Northside Gestalt Therapy

Couples therapy can have a positive impact on relationships by fostering healthier communication, resolving conflicts constructively, and helping couples recognize and change negative patterns in their relationships. Through therapy, couples learn effective ways to express themselves, actively listen, and navigate differences.

Looking beyond the immediate

Therapists also address individual issues that may contribute to relationship challenges, promoting emotional intimacy and trust. Couples can set and achieve goals, enhancing their overall connection and preventing future issues. Ultimately, couples therapy equips partners with the tools and skills needed to build a stronger, more resilient relationship, and a deeper connection.

Your mental health journey

Our therapy outcomes prioritise long-term solutions. We recommend attending at least six sessions to really create lasting change. At our clinic, we believe in meaningful transformation, not quick fixes. If you’re seeking authentic self-improvement, you’ve found your partner in this journey with us.

“Sherridan, thank you for providing a warm and safe space for me to explore and challenge my fears and doubts. You were always interested and fully present as you met me on the intellectual plane, where I was most comfortable and from there, you gently encouraged and supported me to explore emotions that I had kept hidden for more than six decades. You helped my shed my fears of emotional experience and intimacy. My personal life, and my work with my own clients are much richer and deeper for our time together.”
