Couples Counselling

Couple Counselling

Couples counselling offers the couple the opportunity for both people in the relationship a safe place to talk about their difficulties within the relationship in a more effective way. I offer couples the opportunity to be heard and understood and learn new communication skills to enable them engage in more meaningful conversations ,without being caught up in repeated patterns of unhelpful arguments, and move away from yet again going around in circles and not arriving at any agreement which is a common theme in many couple relationships.

Having a place to talk and explore issues can help you identify the roots of your difficulties, see your situation more clearly, thus enabling you to become aware of the part you play in these repeated patterns. Then with the help of some strategies I help you begin to reconnect with each other and work together to manage your issues in a more useful and fulfilling way.

 

Couple Counselling

After exploring feelings, expectations and how your childhood and past relationships affects present relationships, couples begin to see their situation differently, enabling them to see possible choices they have and the changes they can make in themselves and the relationship. Sometimes it is more difficult to see how our own behaviour contributes to the relationship not working. When couples recognize the underlying issues contributing to the difficulties within the relationship, I help with the aid of strategies to improve communication so both of you are having your needs met in healthy way. Some of the issues couples often bring to counselling are communication problems, affaires, confusion about their feelings towards each other, sex problems, trust and jealousy issues, and couples wanting different things from their relationship. I work with all relationship issues whether you are in a couple relationships, on your own, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religion or ethnicity.
