Counselling for couples
Every couple is different. You are welcome whether you are married, living together, separated, short or long term relationships, divorced, and whatever your sexual orientation or identity. Couples counselling focuses on your relationship, providing both of you with a space to openly discuss relationship difficulties in a supportive setting.
Relationships are complex and most couples experience difficulties from time to time. Our sessions together allow you to have meaningful conversations on a wide range of issues, rather than focusing on who is right or wrong. We will explore the challenging aspects of your relationship, the way you communicate, and any negative patterns you may have developed. Counselling can help you manage conflict in a respectful and constructive manner, while developing approaches to improve your communication and connection.
I bring sensitivity, warmth, and humour to my work and my approach is supportive, genuine, and practical. I use techniques from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), psychodynamic, Gottman method, and other therapies. I hope that by working together, you will be able to focus on what you both need to create a meaningful relationship moving forward.
Some couples are unsure about whether to stay together and come to counselling to find clarity about their future. I support couples who have taken the decision to separate and help to negotiate individual but respectful paths.
The first step toward change is awareness.
The second step is acceptance.
