​I love helping couples get their relationship back on track

Couples Counselling is a specific area of counselling which requires specialised training and qualifications. With a Post Graduate Diploma in Couples Counselling, I’m fully qualified to help you with your relationship problems.

​Here are some common things ​couples tell me.  Do they sound familiar?

​​We can’t stop bickering

It feels like we’re miles apart

He /She doesn’t understand how I feel


 We've lost the intimacy

 I'm just so hurt. I can’t forgive ​

I don’t know how to trust​ again

 

I can't cope with the anger

We're going around in circles

Its like talking to a brick wall

​The Good News

The good news is that it is perfectly possible to overcome your problems and rediscover the loving connection and emotional intimacy that you once had.

At the end of therapy many couples tell me their relationship is better than it ever has been.

Couples Therapy Packages

​​In the many years that I've been helping couples, I've found that having ​a set number of sessions combined with practical tools and resources is the most powerful way to help ​couples overcome issues and ​make the shift into a happier more secure relationship.

Having these extra resources ​means that you can take what we ​cover in your sessions and apply it to your relationship in practical ways in between sessions, and into the future. ​​​

​​​With this in mind I've ​developed the following ​therapy packages based on common issues couples face. ​

Choose a ​therapy package that most suits your current situation. We will have a  free 30-minute consultation session where we can discuss your needs and ​​I will then tailor​ the package to specifically ​help you as the unique couple that you are.  

Not sure which is right for you? No problem, just choose one and ​we can discuss it​ in your free 30-minute consultation session.

Frequently Asked questions

Why can’t we overcome our relationship problems by ourselves?

It’s likely that you’ve made several attempts at getting your relationship back on track- but even though you resolve things for a while, those problems keep popping back up –it can feel like quite a struggle.

It’s often the case that those problems are actually symptoms of deeper issues. With the help of a trained and experienced therapist, you can discover how those deeper issues may be impacting your relationship. Most importantly you can learn proven methods: tools and techniques to get past those issues – quickly and in ways that last.

Do we have to be married to come for couples counselling?

​No, you do not have to be married. The only requirement is that you are in a relationship. I welcome couples in any kind of relationship, heterosexual, gay or lesbian; married or co-habiting; pre living together, separating or divorcing; with or without children.

What if ​my partner doesn't want to come for the sessions?

  
​If you are worried about your relationship, but your partner wont come for sessions, you are absolutely welcome to come along as an individual client.

What if we decide we want to end the relationship?

Sometimes couples come to the conclusion that they are better off separating. Even though living apart, many people will continue to have a relationship of some description -and especially if you have children.  It's just that it will be a different kind of relationship.

It’s important that you find ways to ​communicate well and adjust to your new circumstances. Counselling sessions can help you negotiate this and find better ways of getting along for the future.
