Evidence shows that good relationships are fundamental for our well-being. When our relationships are flourishing we feel safe, secure and fulfilled. When problems arise, we can be left feeling rejected, lonely and disappointed. Couples counselling can help you to explore your difficulties, discover what is going on between you and support you to find new and healthier ways of relating.
My approach to couples couselling is to offer a safe and supportive space to explore what is driving the conflicts in your relationship. Often our history and relationship experiences impact on our partnerships in the present: being in a relationship reactivates old wounds from childhood and often we end up repeating the relationship dynamics we witnessed in our parents. We also have differences in our values or ways of communicating which can drive rifts between us. My aim is bring clarity and openness to help you develop a deep understandering of each other. From this place of understanding, differences can be negotiated creatively and compassionately allowing you to build trust and intimacy.
What can relationship counselling help with?
conflict / anger / arguments
trust issues / affairs / betrayal
loss of affection / loss of sexual desire / growing apart
communication problems / power imbalances / rejection
issues around step-families / ex-partners / family dynamics
life changes / having a child / job redundancy
co-dependency / domestic violence / addiction
separation / divorce / breakdown
and much more….
Whatever the issue, taking steps to deal with what is going on in your relationship will empower you to make changes that will lead to a more satisfying relationship. Conflicts and breakdowns can be seen as a starting point for something new and positive to emerge, both on a personal and relationship level.
