Counselling & Couples Work

Counselling & Couples Work

Counselling creates a fertile environment for psychological healing, providing a chance to explore issues and difficulties that life, relationships, and some patterns of behaviour create. It is an opportunity to take a journey that will lead to greater understanding, clarity and increased self-awareness which will create an opportunity to make changes in life with confidence and support.

We will work in a creative and healing space where we get to concentrate on you, your dilemma, your distress, whatever you have sought therapy for.

Here are some examples of issues that can be worked with:

relationship difficulties – present & historical (inc romantic, friendship, family, work-related)
anxiety
panic & stress
divorce and separation
bereavement & loss
decision making & life choices
gender and sexuality
self-esteem & issues of confidence
confusion, muddle & stuckness
trauma
abuse – present & historical
health & illness.

Couples Work

Couples therapy can provide invaluable insight into the workings of your relationship, whether familial, friendship, romantic, marriage, heterosexual or same sex. How we relate to one another has a profound impact on our wellbeing and function in the world and choosing the option to look at it more deeply is a courageous step. Couples come to counselling for all kinds of reasons and do not have to wait until crisis point of staying or leaving is reached. Couples counselling is offered to any couple wishing to take a deep look at their relationship and its workings such as asking, what habits of relating do you have individually and together? What patterns have you fallen into? What matters to you most? How do you hear one another? Where are you not hearing? What do you want from each other? What are you experiencing in your body as you relate to each other? These are all possible questions that may be implicit if you choose to embark upon couples counselling.
