Couples Therapy – Claire Pang

Claire Pang    Quals: B Psych Hons, Master of Clinical Psychology

Couples Therapy: When couples experience frequent conflicts, it can become a repetitive pattern of physical fights, verbal arguments and unresolved disputes. Caught up in this cycle of strong negative emotions, the couple finds it difficult to understand why they fight – and don’t know how to stop.

A trained psychologist can help you to understand how you argue in a predictable way, which can help couples who have been feeling powerless and unable to manage their conflicts. Therapy also assists couples to understand the causes of conflicts, and the vicious cycle that results from reacting to family conflict ineffectively. In couples therapy, the psychologist’s role is also to facilitate resolutions, through helping clients to identify what each partner could do to reduce conflict and heal hurts from the past.

Counselling Approach:  Claire is a Clinical Psychologist with specialist training in treating depression, anxiety, trauma and complex mental health conditions. She is result-orientated, practicing a wide range of therapeutic approaches with great success. In couples therapy, Claire adopts a combination of Interpersonal Therapy and Emotion-Focused Therapy to help couples to deal with the strong negative emotions associated with conflicts. More importantly, the therapy process aims to facilitate an emotional bond between couples.
