Psychobiological Approach to Couples Counselling

Each of our therapists brings a different set of skills and approaches to therapy. We integrate the approaches and use what is best suited for each person.

Psychobiological Approach to Couples Counselling

Psychobiological Approach to Couples Counselling (PACT)

PACT, developed by Dr. Stan Tatkin, is a therapy approach that combines attachment theory, developmental neuroscience, and arousal regulation. It has a reputation for effectively helping even the most challenging couple dynamics.

The main goal of PACT is to reach secure functioning dynamics in relationships by helping partners become experts on each other.

During PACT sessions, therapists focus on moment-to-moment shifts in partners' facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice. They encourage couples to pay close attention to these cues.
