Couples, Family & Interpersonal Therapy
Just as it is in individual therapy, the most crucial step in strengthening any relationship is to be attuned to one’s own triggers and the ways in which one’s habitual responses to these triggers play a role in the outcome of his/her relationships. Similarly, when it comes to the quality of our interpersonal connections, the very nature of the empathic exchange, largely depends on the degree of attunement that exists between two people. Research in the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology shows that the way in which our deep inner experiences connect to others’ deep inner experiences determine the quality of our sense of connectedness in any relationship (Dr. Dan Siegel). Hence, Nazli uses the same concept of neural integration, in helping her clients gain better awareness of how they show up in their relationships. Additionally, through improving their communication, adopting a more effective way of responding, and learning new and more effective ways of resolving conflicts her clients improve their overall attunement to one another, ultimately leading to a greater sense of emotional connection.
