There are many and varied reasons which lead people to seek relationship counselling. These may include issues such as communication, bereavement, fertility, trust, intimacy, family issues – including parenting, step-families and extended families – infidelity, work, financial worries and separation or divorce.
As an experienced counsellor I have worked with individuals and couples from
diverse backgrounds and I welcome same-sex and heterosexual couples.
Are you struggling to discuss important issues with your partner without an argument or do you disagree on how to parent your children? Are you finding it difficult to be intimate together or is work stress impacting upon your relationship? Have you recently separated from your partner and would like to explore what went wrong or do you have difficulty in developing and sustaining intimate relationships?
Couples therapy will offer you time and space to reflect on your patterns of behavior and to help you understand why you feel and respond the way you do and learn skills to improve your communication, so you can find peace and happiness.
I aim to provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental and confidential environment in which we can work together on the issues that are important to you, meeting your unique, individual needs.
I can offer short or longer-term counselling. In short term counselling we can focus on the more immediate issues you are experiencing in your day-to-day life whereas longer term work might allow a wider perspective on how your past experiences may be affecting your current difficulties.
It doesn’t matter if you’re on your own, married, living together, single, gay, lesbian, bi/pansexual, straight or transgender I am here to help you to find yourself and to understand your place in whatever relationship you are in.
I can support you with a whole range of issues that can arise in intimate relationship, such as (but not limited to):
Problems around different values
Challenges with family and children
Rekindling that loving spark
Enhancing intimacy, both emotional and physical.
