Defensiveness – seeing yourself as the victim, making excuses, not listening, etc.
Expressions of contempt – attacking the other through sarcasm, abuse, body language such as sneering or rolling the eyes.
Stonewalling – withdrawing through silence, monosyllabic answers or moving away.

My partner and I saw Blake Anderson at Motion Wellness for couples counselling. In hope to help us with our communication and conflict resolution issues. I must say we both are better from it. Blake was highly professional, he provided us with a safe environment to be more vulnerable towards each other and instilled us with tools and methods to better our relationship.
Chris & Dianne
Very helpful understanding the situation. No judgment, easy to talk and listen. First time using a counselling service would recommend highly. Very professional. Gives you goals to work to achieve what you're looking for.
We saw one of the couple’s specialist therapists at Motion Wellness and it has made us much better as a couple. We thought we could fix our relationship ourselves, but we now know how powerful good therapy is. We are so glad we made the leap into therapy. Thank you, Motion Wellness.
James and Paula
We couldn't agree on much and were stuck in a pattern of fighting. Our Therapist Riddhi helped us break this cycle and replace not listening with listening and not understanding with understanding. We are very grateful to our therapist and would recommend couples that are struggling to see one of the counsellors at Motion Wellness.
Peter & Louise
After years of dealing with anxiety I decided to do something about it. I am glad I did as I now feel a lot better and have learnt so much about how to better manage my anxiety. Thanks Susan
We saw a counsellor at Motion Wellness as we were struggling with different parenting issues. After a few sessions we felt we had changed the way we understood each other and after a few months counselling we had a much better system of parenting together. Thanks guys!
Simone & David
I booked with Blake at Motion Wellness as what I read about the way he works seemed to make sense.
Great experience and we are a happier couple now.
Blake's technique and approach has made such a positive impact and improvement in our relationship. With Blake's experience and expertise we now have a much stronger understanding of our own triggers, invisible patterns and behaviours to support ourselves and each other.
Blake is always professional and goes the extra mile. We would highly recommend him for all couples who are looking to invest time to strengthen their relationships, regardless of the types of conflicts, or even just to learn and improve on what is currently there.
