Sometimes the problems you face are more to do with your relationship, rather than purely about yourself.

Couples Counselling, or Relationship Counselling, can be an extremely effective way for you and your partner to explore what's going on while in the presence of a trained professional. 

It differs from individual therapy in that I would be helping you examine how you communicate with each other and also how you respond to each other. Through this process, Couples Counselling can open your eyes to what's really going on and how each person's actions are perceived by the other.

As the Counsellor, it is not my role to come in and tell you how you should act or live your life. Actions that work for one couple can be destructive for another so my aim would be to help you find out what is actually wrong and assist you in figuring out what to do about it.

There are any number of reasons why couples seek out counselling. Insecurities, infidelity, sexual problems, feeling unloved and countless other reasons why your marriage or partnership may be under pressure.

With most problems in relationships, lack of communication is usually at the heart of it, or, at the very least, making it worse.

How can we take the first step?

I would recommend a free 30 minute assessment appointment so that we can briefly chat about what has brought you to seek out Couples Counselling in the first place and to make sure we all understand what you're looking for.

After all..
