Couples Counselling

Relationships are never static. Our partners can bring out both the best and the worst in us, and there is always the potential to learn and grow together.

Perhaps you find yourselves arguing more often, disagreeing about parenting issues, or having arguments that keep going round in circles.

Maybe you are struggling to agree on some big life decisions, such as marriage, starting a family, moving house… or would just like to feel closer and understand each other better.

Talking to an impartial third person can help to resolve your differences, and open channels to better communication.

Concerns that People Bring to Couples Counselling 

  • Constant fighting or bickering
  • Burying your feelings
  • Strengthening your relationship
  • Feeling ignored or misunderstood
  • Becoming distant, moving apart
  • Difficulties in communication
  • Conflict over children and parenting styles
  • Power struggles
  • Trust and commitment
  • Financial disagreements
  • Circling around the same issues
  • Repeating the same arguments
  • Feeling left out, partner prioritises the children

If any of these resonate with you, why not give me a call on 0474095432 and we can have a chat  about finding solutions.

How Relationship and Couples Counselling Can Help

Change may happen gradually, often as a result of life changes, such as becoming parents, moving house, children leaving home, starting school…suddenly you find you are out of touch with each other.

There’s no need to wait until things are really falling apart. Addressing your concerns before they reach this point mean they can be resolved much more easily.

Two things that are guaranteed to bring up our early attachment wounding are parenting and adult relationships. We bring  our unresolved past with us into our relationships. 

A certain level of conflict in a relationship is quite normal. The trick is learning how to deal with it safely and without hurt. Supportive intimate relationships can be a place of healing and personal growth for you both.

We all have a choice. We can choose to learn and grow within our relationships, or stay stuck in a loop, continually repeating the problems from the past.

Counselling is not about being right or wrong, but learning how to see things from another person’s perspective. The aim is closer relationships based on understanding and connection.

I won’t “fix” you, you’re not broken. Rather, I see myself as a coach or guide, helping you  learn how to work things out for yourselves. 

It’s never too early or too late to work on your relationship.

Start with a Discovery Call

The first step is to make your free discovery call. I will explain the counselling process, how I work, and what usually happens in a session. We will arrange a date and time for your first visit and discuss fees. 

Your First Session

We will start by getting to know each other and I’ll ask questions about your relationship. We can discuss your goals for therapy, and any specific areas that you would like to work on.

Subsequent Sessions

In your sessions we will be gradually working through your current concerns, and any long-standing issues. You will be learning new skills of communication, developing a secure attachment based on understanding and connection.
