What can you achieve through couple counselling?
Couple counselling will help with your relationship and enable you to move forward in a better healthier way. It will enable you both to talk about your issues, to communicate better and to have a healthier, more respectful and supportive relationship. However, if through this process you find that you wish to separate, it will also support you both through this.
Couples counselling is for individuals, couples & families who are experiencing relationship difficulties. It’s a process which might seem rather intimidating at first, however,many couples find that if they attend with an open mind and a willingness to work with their partner and with the counsellor, their relationship will benefit from at least a few sessions.
Relationships impact on our wellbeing and happiness. When our personal relationships are not working well, our ability to cope with other areas of our life is often affected. Many relationship difficulties can be managed and supported with the right kind of help.
Couples Counselling is an unbiased conversion that is aimed to assist with any relationship difficulties that you are experiencing. Whether you are wishing to enter a relationship, wanting to enhance your relationship, or having difficulties within your relationship, I will work in partnership with you as an individual or with you and your partner, to ask questions so I can understand your relationship and assist you to find ways to manage your situation more effectively.
Why come to see a couple counsellor?
Couples come to counselling for many reasons. It might be that a couple comes to counselling because something is not working in their relationship. It could be that they have just found out about that their partner is having an affair, or they are having constant arguments, or they have separated and want to see if they can give it another go.
What couples achieve from couple counselling
Counselling will enable you to achieve a better understanding of yourself and your partner, which in turn will help you to deal with your relationship more effectively. Through conversations around intimacy, sex, love, expectations, anxiety, fears, hopes and dreams, among other things, the aim is to create possibilities for you both to explore more about what you want or feel you need from your relationship. This will hopefully help you both to be more empathic, respectful and supportive with each other, as well as equipping you with better tools and skills so you can work together better.
As an experienced couple counsellor, I have many years of working with couples from many different backgrounds, religions and personalities. I am warm, approachable and professional, but also non-judgmental and impartial.
The sessions are confidential and provide a safe environment for both of you to talk openly. Our first session together will be about establishing what is happening in your relationship, what each of you feels or thinks about your situation and to establish what you each want from counselling and whether I will be the right person for you.
If you do want to proceed, then we will talk more about this and the process.
What can you expect from the sessions?
The sessions are ongoing and are not fixed. They are client led, so that you can end when you want. I work with your agenda and tailor the sessions to your needs. I welcome feedback, work transparently and review regularly in order to check if we are going in the right direction. Some of the sessions will be with you both and some individually. Some couples welcome this and some don’t, but it might give you the opportunity to talk things through.
