There are two sides to every story and this is particularly true in our relationships with our partners. Sometimes in the therapy room, during individual counselling, we might think about what our partner might say about us during their own counselling session. This is where my interest in couples counselling began.
I have undertaken extensive couples counselling training in London and am fully qualified to help you both, individually and together, look at your relationship from different perspectives and learn to really listen to how the other is feeling.
My aim is to provide you and your partner with a safe, confidential and empathic space to help you in exploring and progressing your relationship; regardless of age, race, religious beliefs, gender identity, or sexual orientation. I can also help you to recognise how conflict in a relationship can indicate the potential for personal growth.
Common relationship issues I can work with are:
• Tensions resulting from differences (opinions, preferences, priorities and ways of being)
• Feelings of resentment, anger and anxiety
• Loss of connection
• Lack of intimacy
• Feeling unsafe
• Repeating arguments
• Difficulties with other family members
I can provide support for couples who wish to separate or help those who cannot decide which way to go to find clarity.
For couples in a satisfactory relationship, counselling can help to keep you on track and provide you with greater understanding and fulfilment.
The first step is you both to come and see me for a half-hour free ‘Meeting’ session so you can both decide whether I am the right counsellor for you. If you choose to proceed I will then ask you to both to complete my questionnaire, confidentially, and bring it with you to the next session. This can also be done by email if this is easier for you.
I look forward to working with you both!
My experience and training also enables me to work with victims of people with narcissistic traits, so if you think this is you, please get in touch.
