This is face-to-face counselling for two people in a relationship. This usually means a couple, but could also be siblings, a parent and son or daughter or two friends. I do not work with people under the age of 16 years.
Why couples counselling?
You may be considering couples counselling because your relationship is in crisis and you want to preserve it or decide wether it is worth preserving. You may have decided to separate and want help to manage the separation process. You may feel generally happy with the relationship but find that there are specific areas of difficulty that you want to improve or you may feel that your relationship functions well but wish to enhance your experience of connection and intimacy.
How I work.
Couples often come to counselling confused and distressed about their patterns of relating to one another. As a Transactional Analyst I help you to understand these patterns in terms of your past experiences and the needs that you and your partner are trying to have met. We will work to find more effective ways of communicating and more emotionally satisfying ways of relating. We may work on enhancing your communication skills, developing emotional literacy or building conflict resolution skills.
Still not sure?
I offer a free half hour initial meeting, in which you have the oportunity to meet me and ask any questions you may have about the process. I hope this will help you to decide wether you want to try counselling / psychotherapy and wether you think that I am the right counsellor / psychotherapist for you.
If you have any questions please get in touch.
