South Croydon and Warlingham Based Couple
Whether you feel that you have gradually been growing apart, or something has happened that has disturbed the core of your relationship you don’t have to face these issues alone.
I know how important it is that you are heard by your partner. I can show you ways that you can reconnect and help you talk about difficult and sensitive issues in a constructive and caring way.
I am a Relate trained and qualified counsellor with a Masters degree in Relationship therapy. I have a breadth of experience in numerous relationship issues, these include
Affairs and betrayals
Lack of intimacy and sex
Moving towards separation
Couples where one or both are affected by mental health conditions
Parenting and/or blended family issues
Starting or maintaining a relationship
An important part of my work is that I tailor the therapy to you, and your needs. Sometimes counselling isn’t necessarily about reaching a conclusion or resolution, often it can also be the start of a longer process.
The most important thing to recognise is that the moment you've got in contact you have started the process, and this is the first step in beginning to move forward.
If you'd rather, you can come as an individual to talk through any relationship issues that are troubling you.
What to expect in the first session
Making the decision to start counselling often takes courage and can be daunting. I'm very aware of this, and will work hard to make the space feel secure for the you. My priority in the first session is to hear your story and find out what is most important for you.
When there are two of you, I would need to hear what is important to both of you. I also want you to get an idea of the process you have begun and how it will unfold. It's important that you move towards understanding that the counselling session is a space and time where you can (both) be heard.
If you wish to understand more about the process or investigate how I can assist you, I'm quite happy to talk to you on the phone prior to booking a session. Often clients find it really useful to have an informal chat with me, get an idea of the process and a feel for the kind of person I am.
