For Couples and Individuals
What is Relationship Counselling?
Relationships are an essential part of life. They have a significant impact on our personal and professional lives. Difficulties in a relationship can cause anxiety, rejection, hurt and loneliness. A key part of couple therapy is to improve or restore communication. In some cases a couple may have stopped talking because of the difficulty, so this is an important part of what I do.
The good news is that with commitment and perseverance, it is possible to learn how to construct a relationship that is both loving and lasting.
How does Counselling and Psychotherapy help?
Counselling & Psychotherapy provides a safe and caring environment to discuss difficulties. The relationship with your therapist will be very significant in forming the basis for good therapeutic work. I am committed to helping people build loving and lasting relationships in a professional, supportive and confidential setting.
As a specialist relationship therapist, my aim is to help you discover the sources of the problem, gain insights and develop techniques for overcoming relationship difficulties, which are often based in communication, trust, commitment and individual couple issues.
Who is relationship counselling for?
Relationship counselling is a service for couples and individuals of all sexual orientations. I see lots of people on their own. It may be that your relationship has broken down. I also help individuals who are not currently in a relationship or for those who have never had a relationship or are concerned about relationship and/or sexual issues.

Why is it so difficult for couples to seek help?
Beginning any form of therapy is daunting, but in my experience people find it harder to start couple therapy than individual therapy. This may explain why so many couples wait so long to get help. By the time they contact me, some have built up so many years of resentment, despair and anger that it’s almost impossible for them to talk to each other, thus making the process of healing the relationship much tougher than it could have been had they begun sooner. The more distant they become, the longer it will take to regain lost affection, communication and trust. That’s why I suggest that even if you’re thinking about couple counselling, or starting the journey as an individual, it’s best to start the process immediately.
