I’m Linda Taylor, one of Sydney’s leading relationship therapists.
I take a research-based approach to creating stronger relationships. Most importantly, though, I empower you with the knowledge, techniques and tools you need to sustain a happy, healthy and sensual relationship over the long term.
Relationship therapy is a team effort where both of you will benefit from education, awareness and communication. Individual therapy can also be used to support your relationship goals.
Even with the very best of intentions to resolve their problems, couples don’t always have the specific skills to work things through to a resolution. That’s where I come in.
Some of my clients are low functioning - at the point of despair, communication has broken down, trust has eroded, and sex is non-existent. Other couples are high functioning - fundamentally strong but are facing a specific crisis and want the guidance and support of a professional.
What happens in relationship therapy?
By identifying your individual challenges, you learn practical strategies to. We cover three critical areas:
Building a life together that is full of shared meaning
Building and mending your friendship, love and intimacy, and
Resolving relationship conflicts and preventing future conflicts from escalating
We repair and rebuild your relationship through THREE STAGES
Stage One: The Affirmation
This can be likened to a doctor completing a thorough diagnosis before treatment. Each of you completes a confidential online assessment. From this assessment, a strengths-based report is generated that provides a non-biased summary of your relationship.
Stage Two: The Desire map
Is developing a unique intervention plan that captures your goals. A unique map designed for your relationship will guide you towards a happy, lasting and stronger relationship.
Stage Three: The Journey
Involves meeting for a series of sessions. The time frame depends on the state of your relationship; it has taken time to create the state of the relationship, and it can take time to repair it.
I act as a coach, guide and mediator to keep you on track while we work through challenges and examine research based principles for lasting, happy relationships.
Relationship therapy helps with a variety of issues
We are all unique, and our relationships are, too. Yet we all share the same fundamental challenges, including:
Not being able to communicate or listen effectively
Managing anger and conflict resolution
Feeling that there is an enemy in the house, evident via fighting and anger problems, including verbal abuse
