“A good relationship doesn’t mean harmony and peace, but requires awareness, flexibility, and an appreciation of the dreaming process.” - Arnold Mindell 

 

 

One of the greatest illusions about romantic partnerships in our modern times is that our feelings of love for our beloved(s), coupled with the duration of time spent together exclusively, should automatically equate to a lasting connection filled with mutual happiness and fulfillment. 

 

However, in reality, partnerships are in fact a multi-dimensional, complex, mysterious, and ecstatic confluence of worlds (..constantly trying to evolve), that require conscious, consistent, and meaningful participation from all partners in order for the relationship to truly become a vessel for embodied healing, psychospiritual maturation, and a togetherness that is mutually fulfilling.

The trouble with our misguided notions of what a “successful” relationship should look like on the outside, is that we lose touch with the greater intelligence that is hidden inside of ourselves, our partner(s), and what our teacher Francis Weller refers to as the “third body” (or spirit) of our relationship.

 

From our perspective, the aim of engaging in couples and relationship work is to support you (as a couple) to cultivate the awareness of, and skilfully dance with, the currents of evolution that are showing up within you, your beloved(s), and the wisdom of your partnership's process.

Our Approach To Couple's Psychotherapy

We utilize a process-oriented approach to relationship work that acknowledges the multi-dimensionality of being in intimate partnership. This means that the focus may dynamically shift: from one partner’s process, to the other partner’s process, or the focus may hone in on the spirit of the relationship itself and what is potentially being asked of both partners involved. In this sense, we support you both to achieve your relationship intentions and guide you to follow the intelligence of what your relationship is asking of you. 

“For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. I hold this to be the highest task for a bond between two people: that each protects the solitude of the other.” - Rainer Maria Rilke

"Alyona and Alexandre hold a safe container that is a wonderful mix of gentle acceptance and dynamic inquiry. Their embodied, soulful and playful approach really encourages a deeper understanding of the underlying issues, and there's something quite special about being mirrored by another couple in the therapeutic space. They helped us move through a major time of transition in our relationship, through which we feel more connected with ourselves and each other... very grateful for their gifts and presence!"
