Tehilla Luttig's profile on the Gottman Referral Network The Couples Connection | Couples Counselling & Workshops

You do not need to know how to fix things - with my tools and insights, and your commitment we can rebuild your home and connection. 

Couples Counselling for:
  • Communication

  • Affairs / Betrayal

  • Resentment / Anger

  • Disconnection

  • Loneliness

  • Adjusting with Children

  • In-laws

  • Boundaries

  • Trauma (past or present)

  • Feeling Unappreciated & Unimportant

A safe place to:

  • gain insights into your relationship,

  • learn tools to regulate and modify dysfunctional behavior,

  • get closer (reconnected and intimate),

  • improve communication, and

  • build on your strengths.

I offer online, evidence-based couples counselling or coaching workshops for all couples wanting to get back what they had and renavigate their lives after having children. Based in Hermanus, South Africa but serving couples across the globe, I am passionate about re-establishing family values.

Why with Me?

  • I’m internationally trained with various couples therapy techniques from across the world (including training from the Gottman Institute, Terry Real Relational Institute, and the developmental model). I also use principles of imago, emotionally focused theory, solution-focused theory, and a lot of attachment-based work!

  • We do an in-depth marital assessment to gain a deep understanding of what's really going on.

  • I am trained in BWRT (brainworking recursive therapy), allowing you to work through triggers and trauma’s in a single session.

  • I don't just do couples counselling - I have years of specialized training in couples counselling. 

  • I don’t do traditional 1-hour long sessions! My sessions are a minimum of 1.5 hours long, and with couples, I offer (and prefer) full-day workshops (also knows as Marathons or Intensives). 

    • Your workshops with me are:

      •  private (no other couples at the same time),

      • personalized (prepared according to your needs),

      • intense (often getting more than a months work done in one day),

      • informative (includes tools, assessments (some free, some to pay for [optional]), and loads of insights),

      • directive & experienced (I am not scared to take the lead and guide you both when you go off track or start blaming each other, or lie to me),

      • safe (I am experienced, don’t judge, and am comfortable to open up to).

Please note: I am very strict with our time! Time is precious, and according to how I work, I do not work with couples where one believes their partner is solely to blame and refuses to come into therapy open, ready to accept the possibility there is something you need to learn about yourself. If you believe the relationship problems are solely your partners' problem, then I am not the right therapist for you. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh, but I don't want to waste your time or money. I am happy to discuss this with you via telephone though if you're uncertain. Make a free telephone consultation with me via email.

(I understand after an affair discovery, it might feel very much that it’s just the unfaithful spouse’s fault, and we will work on the affair and it’s trauma first and foremost).

IF however, one of you is feeling like you aren’t sure if you want to stay married and divorce is on the table – discernment counselling is an approach I am trained in (only person in South Africa trained in DC), that helps you to dig into what your options are and why - allowing you both to make a more informed decision during this difficult time. Please do state you are interested in Discernment Counselling though if you contact me so I can help you accordingly.

 

If you have any other questions or would like to book your appointment please email me: tehillaluttig@pm.me. You are welcome to call me, 083 639 3339, but the chances are I won’t get to your call (I don’t answer my phone in session, and the receptionist doesn’t handle my client calls). So you have a much better chance of reaching me via email or WhatsApp.
