Relationships can be deeply rewarding but we can be left feeling disappointed, guilty, rejected or lonely when there are problems. Couples Counseling offers an opportunity to explore the difficulties in your relationship and heal the breaches between you.
My approach to Couples Counseling centres on what happens between you both. By exploring how you interact and relate to each other, defining the issues that drive your conflicts, and making sense of your relationship history and how you’ve arrived where you are today, you’ll be able to re-establish trust and create a way of living together that suits you both.
Couples often experience difficulties when the family values we’re raised with come into conflict; however, differences can enrich relationships if we recognise and accept them. Affairs and the betrayal of trust can jeopardise the future of a relationship, leaving both partners distant and disconnected. And sometimes, after the first flush of love, we’re left feeling that there’s a huge gap between what we’d expected from each other and what we actually have. Of course, every relationship is unique and the difficulties you’re experiencing will be unique to you.
What can Couples Counselling help with?
loss of affection | fear of intimacy | life changes
power imbalances | communication problems | commitment issues
affairs and betrayals | jealousy and anger | arguments and conflict
break-ups | separation and divorce | sexual problems
domestic violence | co-dependency | pre-marital worries
and much more…
What to expect in the counseling room
A lot of the work in Couples Counselling is around encouraging a greater mutual understanding, recognising how and why things have changed, and discovering new ways to make positive lasting changes.
By providing a safe space where you can both speak freely, and by focusing on clarity and resolution, I can support both of you to:
- explore problems openly and honestly
- gain a deeper understanding of each other
- improve your communciation within your relationship
- explore healthier patterns of relating
- develop a deeper intimacy
- create more positive attachments to each other.
Appointments are £60 per session.
