Are you struggling to discuss important issues with your partner without an argument or do you disagree on how to parent your children? Are you finding it difficult to be intimate together or is work stress impacting upon your relationship? Have you recently separated from your partner and would like to explore what went wrong or do you have difficulty developing and sustaining intimate relationships?
There are many and varied reasons which lead people to seek relationship counselling. These may include issues such as communication, bereavement, fertility, trust, intimacy, family issues – including parenting, step-families and extended families – infidelity, work, financial worries and separation or divorce. As an experienced counsellor I have worked with individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds and I welcome same-sex and heterosexual couples.
I aim to provide a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which we can work together on the issues that are important to you, meeting your unique, individual needs.
I can offer short or longer term counselling. In short term counselling we can focus on the more immediate issues you are experiencing in your day-to-day life whereas longer term work might allow a wider perspective on how your past experiences may be affecting your current difficulties. Length of counselling varies but six sessions is a helpful minimum.
Taking the first step in seeking support can feel daunting and I will do everything I can to help you to feel at ease. I offer a 50-minute initial appointment (also known as an initial assessment) to assess whether I can work with you whilst also supporting you to decide whether you would like to work with me.
