Couples counselling (relationship and marriage counselling) may feel like a daunting
prospect, so well done for taking the first step. Couples counselling is for couples who
are dating, living together, engaged, in a civil partnership, unmarried, married,
separated or divorced.
A relationship consists of two unique individuals and each individual brings their own experience of early childhood, past relationships, family backgrounds, pressures of
work, university, money, health and their hopes for the future. Therefore, it is not
surprising that things may become difficult, confusing and complex resulting in the
experiencing emotional pain and distress..
I offer a non judgemental service that does not discriminate on the grounds of class,
age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, race or ethnicity.
I am committed to providing couples and relationship counselling in a safe and
confidential space, which can help enable them to freely express their feelings and
emotions and explore the issues that they are facing together.
My way of working helps enable couples to talk freely about the difficulties within the relationship, move through conflict and identify the negative patterns that they bring
to the relationship, acknowledge these patterns, and new and healthy patterns.
I also help enable couples to communicate more effectively, resolve conflict and
make changes where needed in order to re-establish the trust and love required for
intimacy the relationship to flourish.
The areas that I work with include:-
Arguments and conflict
One partner would like to start a family and the other does not
A lack of fun, enjoyment and pleasure within the relationship
A breakdown of communication
Feeling that one or both of you have drifted apart
Feeling lonely, misunderstood, not heard and frustrated
When one person falls out of love and wants to move on
Feeling that there is no common ground anymore
Feelings of dissatisfaction in the relationship partner
divorce and separation
Infidelity, affairs and a loss of trust
Feeling like the spark has disappeared
