Distress in a relationship can create tension, sadness, worry, fear and confusion. Couple counselling can help you and your partner to resolve issues and move forward. I endeavour to provide a nurturing and safe environment where you and your partner are heard without judgement and are given the support to work through any concerns and issues. I offer therapeutic support to all couple relationships, regardless of sexual orientation and/or marital status. Through counselling you will both explore thoughts, feelings and actions to help you and your partner gain a deeper understanding of your relationship. I appreciate the uniqueness of each couple and their relationship and can support you in identifying and defining the issue or problem.
How I can help
The aim of the work undertaken is not just to relieve the pressing issues of the moment, but also to seek a more optimistic and fulfilling future for both partners, either within the present relationship, or apart. People come to couple counselling for a wide range of issues including:
• Difficulties of family life
• Life transitions
• Separation or divorce
• Communication difficulties
• Same-sex relationship issues
• Sexual difficulties
Couple counselling can also help couples who simply want to strengthen their relationship and gain better understanding of each other. Pre-marriage counselling can help those who plan to marry, explore their differences, attitudes and future expectations for the relationship.
