He offers a detailed intervention devised to cultivate attunement, thereby helping couples connect, respect, and show affection. Emotional attunement is extended to tackle the subjects of flooding, the story we tell ourselves about our relationship, conflict, personality, changing relationships, and gender.

You may even notice you do this yourself. For instance, you may frequently end up in relationships with partners who refuse to commit and, despite the obvious red flags, you’re continuously left wondering why this always happen…

What makes you happy?

Written by Charlene Borg
Have you ever heard the term ‘horizontal thinking’? It’s relatively new to me too. I first came across this term in an article by Elizabeth Gilbert, an author I love. It refers to the spiral thinking that goes on in our heads when lying in bed, as we go over aspects of life which we never imagined we’d experience, or any other thoughts, fears and/or mental states we find ourselves in. I a…

What family therapy is and why you should consider it

Written by Maria Mifsud
Family therapy is distinct from other forms of therapy because it focuses on the family system. The problems of individuals are observed within the context of the larger family unit. As a family therapist myself, my raison d’être is that personal difficulties cannot be successfully addressed or solved without understanding the dynamics of the family. When looking at an individual’s personal…

Understanding the different forms of narcissism

Written by Danjela Falzon
When we hear the term ‘narcissist’, we usually think of the grandiose, self-important, arrogant and powerful world leader or celebrity. Recently, however, the term ‘narcissist’ is increasingly being used to refer to co-workers, bosses, partners or family members. This may be due to a rise in narcissism or simply increased awareness of this toxic personality style. Whichever it is, the real…

The Parent-Child-Teacher triangle

Written by Maria Mifsud
As someone who grew up in the 90s, I was one of the very last generations that was able to spend time playing outdoors with other neighbourhood kids, as opposed to playing Super Mario on a video game console or Candy Crush on a smartphone. The only friends I knew were ones made of flesh, not Instagram profiles of people I had never met in real life. My only worry back then was that of kicking a…
