Relationships can be our greatest source of joy, and as many of us discover, they can also bring us much heartache and pain. The challenges of relationships can be an opportunity to get to know ourselves and our partners and provide great insight into our needs, wants and desires.
Boredom, sexual problems, infidelity, jealousy, anger and conflict – there are as many issues as there are couples to face them. When working with a couple my initial focus is on creating a safe and contained space for each person to be able to speak and express themselves. Typically, I would feed back my observations on what I see and hear during the session. I usually draw attention to the interplay or dynamic process between the couple, commenting not from a judgemental position, but from an impartial perspective. This helps to facilitate awareness and clarify any conflicts or misunderstandings.
Sessions last for either 50 or 80 minutes and are charged at £60.00 and £90.00 respectively.
I regularly see couples both in Highbury and in Palmers Green. If you are experiencing relationship difficulties and think that couple counselling may help please give me a call or send an email.
