Dr. Tertia Harker: Clinical Hypnotherapist | Counselor | Healer
Your counseling sessions will begin with exploring the issues in your relationship from each of your perspectives. This will include one-on-one sessions with each partner. As we progress you’ll learn techniques to improve communication with your partner. You’ll then work with your partner to negotiate a future for your relationship and to then co-create a roadmap towards this future. The couples counseling process usually takes between five and ten sessions to complete.
Once the process is complete you will have the option to book ‘refresh’ sessions as required to support the changes in your relationship. All intimate relationships come under pressure from external and internal influences.
Common relationship pressures include infidelity, sexual issues, and the impact of children or relations with the extended family. However, financial problems, the impact of a partner’s career, health problems, and addiction can also put pressure on a relationship.
Typically these issues will be amplified by communication problems within the relationship, which can quickly bring a relationship to crisis point. This can leave one or both partners feeling disengaged from the relationship, or as if they have outgrown their partner.
Our couples counseling process creates a supportive environment in which I will assist you in improving communication within your relationships, reconnecting with the positive energies that initially brought you together and then working together to negotiate a future for you relationship.

You can resolve emotional uses by adjusting specific areas of your life that make you vulnerable by consulting a psychotherapist. These individuals are either licenced counsellors or psychologists with a specialisation in psychotherapy. A psychotherapist can help those who are suffering from depression, anxiety, eating disorders, or other related ailments.
They aid in the treatment of psychological difficulties that have developed throughout the course of your life. They’ll go back to your childhood and talk about various life events up until now to get a good picture of how you were shaped and impacted. You will gain a clearer picture of your emotions, actions, and thoughts. Unlike counselling, this is a long-term procedure that identifies emotional disorders associated with personal histories and life obstacles. You’re more likely to emerge enlightened and with a stronger ability to take control of your life.
Psychotherapists usually hold a psychology degree, but psychotherapy is also available as an independent certification. Professionals without a psychology degree would not be able to diagnose clinical issues, however they may be trained to provide therapy in the presence of clinical concerns. Book an Appointment
