RELATIONSHIP THERAPY

Having worked for Relate the national couple organisation for 17 years, I have a wide knowledge and experience of working with couples and the difficulties they sometimes face. People who come for relationship counselling can be part of a couple, single, in a same sex relationship, young or old.

I deal with a variety of relationship issues and I also see families who are struggling with relationship matters. I work by helping you to identify shared relationship goals and explore the kinds of difficulties that get in the way of fulfilling these.  

Couples go through many changes together including: living together for the first time, having children, changing jobs and careers, adjusting to their children leaving home, dealing with poor physical and mental health and coming to terms with bereavements

We will work together to look at the values and beliefs you each bring to the relationship and how you can improve your communication and ways of dealing with conflict to create greater intimacy and trust between each other. Counselling can help you to work together in order to build resilience and support for each other.

 

 

Relationship counselling may be needed for reasons such as:

 

  • Improve your relationship by addressing communication and conflict 

  • Addressing the impact of affairs and betrayals 

  • Change the way you communicate with each other

  • Intimacy

  • Divorce and separation 

  • Work out different ways of settling arguments and conflict

  • Sexual issues work on sexual issues

  • Find out how to make your relationship stronger

  • Family issues

  • Life stages and change 

  • Looking at how having children has changed your relationship

  • Pre-nuptial counselling

  • Blended families

  • Same sex relationships

  • Redundancy and the impact on relationships

  • Depression or mental health issues with one partner in a relationship

  • Birth of a baby
