Individual Therapy

Life can be very difficult sometimes – full of challenges which may seem to big to face alone. Perhaps you feel that nobody is listening to you. Maybe you don’t feel understood. It could even be that you can’t see how your issues could ever be resolved.

We will focus together on the things you would like to work on. I work in a creative and adaptive way, with you as the client as my primary focus at all times.

If you would like to be heard and understood; if you would like to change the aspects of your life which are causing you pain; if you would simply like to talk to someone without fear of judgement or criticism, please get in touch…

Couples Therapy

Sometimes our familiar ways of managing challenges in our experience can hinder our capacity to lead fulfilling and contented lives. The work we will do together will help you break the patterns of behaviour which could be causing difficulties and help you to resolve issues in the future.

Couple’s counselling is an intervention that involves the development of a safe and confidential relationship between therapist and client which will help us examine the issues which led you to seek help. In couple’s counselling, your relationship is the client.

My approach

We will firstly spend some time looking at you as a couple: your lifestyle, work, health and experiences. You will both be given equal opportunity to talk about how you see your relationship and what you perceive to be the difficulties for which you would like support.

For some couples, following this initial joint consultation, an individual session for each partner may be appropriate. This is not an opportunity to ‘get your side of the story in’, but rather a chance to reflect on what could be happening for you, how this affects your relationship and what you would like to achieve from the therapy. 

What you can gain

Couples therapy is not a magic cure for a relationship in difficulty. There is no blueprint or ‘cure all’ solution. However, we can work together on your relationship and establish what you would like to achieve. This is not necessarily an attempt to fix something which feels broken. 

Instead, we will examine the dynamics of the relationship – how each partner feels within it and what could be improved or altered in order to strengthen it. We will examine the different stages of all relationships, how they work and what impact there can be if partners are experiencing different stages. Couple’s therapy is about providing a safe and supportive environment within which to explore what is best for both of you and, ultimately the relationship. 

Group Therapy

Sometimes our familiar ways of managing challenges in our experience can hinder our capacity to lead fulfilling and contented lives. The work we will do together will help you break the patterns of behaviour which could be causing difficulties in your family and help you to resolve issues in the future.

We will examine the dynamics of the relationships within your family unit – how each person feels within it and what could be improved or altered in order to strengthen it. We will examine the different stages of all relationships, how they work and what impact there can be if family members are experiencing different stages. Family therapy is about providing a safe and supportive environment within which to explore what is best for all of you. It will help you explore what’s going on for each of you, recognise any key issues and help to resolve them in a constructive and positive manner.
