Human relationships are at the heart of therapy: our relationships with others and with ourselves. When relationship wounds are ignored, supressed or managed through unhealthy coping mechanisms, they can often lead to distorted thinking, emotional pain and increased psychological distress which interferes with daily functioning. However, within the context of security and compassion, our beliefs, thoughts, and emotions can be restored to a proper balance and wounds can begin to heal. Hope can be restored for families and indiviudals.
