For Yourself & Your Partner

Couple’s therapy provides a safe and confidential space to help you to find a way through the difficulties you may be facing in your relationship.

Often people find talking therapeutic in its own right but after the first few sessions I will be able to provide a more guided approach and actively work towards your managing your issues.

You might be finding it difficult to understand your partner or are missing the closeness you once had. Money, parenting, family, sex and housework are some of the concerns that typically bring couples to therapy. Maybe you struggle to agree on anything or perhaps infidelity has put your future together in jeopardy. Perhaps one of you or both are experiencing feelings of being stuck, pressurised, controlled or depressed.

Couple’s therapy aims to . . .

• Be considerate and inclusive of the needs of each person in the relationship

• Recognise behavioural patterns

• Understand your actions and feelings

• See each other’s perspective

• Recognise abusive behaviour

• Enable members to talk together or individually, often about distressing or upsetting issue, in a respectful way.

• Invite engagement and support recovery

Even if things don’t change counselling may help you to see things in a different way or make a decision that’s right for you to move forward.

It doesn’t matter if you are on your own, married, living together, separated, single, gay, bi/pansexual, straight or transgender – couples counselling CAN help however you identify.

What can we expect?

• Identify useful ways of compromise that work for both parties

• Manage expectations within the relationship

• Greater awareness of oneself within that couple

• Cope with change

• Manage conflict in a healthy way

• Find new ways to move forward
