Our view on couples
- Vilija Girgždė
Every couple is unique. There are no as it should be's, there are only as we want's. It is difficult for an individual to remain themselves in a couple. Couples themselves suffer from stagnant beliefs.
- Viktoras Keturakis
It's intimate. While it's easy to joke about superficial details, it's harder to open up. It's uncomfortable and slightly embarrassing. Couple's therapy is a journey. Journey we take to repeat something we've done before. It's an attempt to leave old paths and forge new habits: the ones that help us listen and respond better.
