Couples counselling

This is face-to-face or online 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 or with groups of 3 or more.

Why couples counselling?
You may be considering couples counselling because your relationship is in crisis and you want to preserve it or decide whether 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.

What's involved?
During your first session I will ask you about the problems you are dealing with as well as your goals for therapy. Folowing on from this session, I will then ask to see each of you separately. During these individual sessions I will take your personal histories so that I can understand each individual's 'back story' and how your individual histories and personalities are relevant to the problems you are trying to solve. Couples sessions start in earnest ofter this. It is usual to meet each week for a period of time, after which you may decide to come less frequently. This will be explained and agreed as we go forward in the therapy.

What to do next?
Get in touch. There is no commitment to proceed and it may help you with your decision.
