Couple Counselling

I have a special interest in working with couples, having worked extensively with couples throughout my counselling career. Whether you are experiencing severe problems in your relationship or if you feel in need of an MOT for your relationship, counselling can help.

Couples are under a lot of pressure and often start experiencing difficulties in their relationship due to these pressures. The pressure on a couple may come from work commitments, health worries, money worries or from bringing up their children and many areas of the couple relationship can become negatively affected. Whether that is in the area of communication, priorities over family time and/or work, an affair or sexual issues etc it can feel like the love that once was felt has disappeared and been replaced by a lot of bitterness, resentment and a feeling of just functioning alongside each other.

If you come to see me as a couple, the relationship I develop with you is very important. This relationship enables you both to feel safe to look at difficult areas of your relationship, along with looking at factors from your past which are currently having an impact on your relationship.

My aim as a Therapist is to build a safe environment for you, to give you a space to talk openly and honestly, to help you both explore areas that are causing conflict and then to support you whilst you work through your difficulties and help you to discover new skills and tools to help rebuild, replenish and restore your relationship.

Couples in Crisis

'Couples in Crisis' sessions are aimed at couples that want intensive therapy usually over two days due to a crisis in their relationship. This may be due to the disclosure of an affair, one partner deciding the relationship is over and planning to leave or any number of reasons that leads a couple to feel that their relationship is in real danger of ending.

This intensive therapy is carried out in two 3-hour blocks over two days. During the 6 hours of therapy couples will be given the space to talk through the crisis they are experiencing, whilst I work to bring some clarity to the situation, aiding the discussion and working with you to sort through the problems you are experiencing helping you to find ways forward.

I would want to meet with you for a 1 hour free session prior to the weekend, if this is not possible then I would need to carry out a telephone assessment so that I can take a full history of the relationship before the intensive therapy begins.

My fee for these sessions is £480. If you are interested in knowing more about my 'Couples in Crisis' sessions or to make a booking please give me a call or email me.
