Couples: I aim to help you to:

  • Get your relationship back on track by giving a safe place where you can talk together
  • Have a deeper understanding of the trigger points in your relationship so that alternative ways of settling differences can be reached
  • Learn how to communicate effectively with your partner so that it is supportive and inquisitive rather than hostile
  • Understand how the differences between you and your partner are an opportunity for you to develop new aspects of yourself
  • Understand why an affair happened
  • Understand why you chose your partner in the first place
  • Learn new ways of nurturing your relationship and identify its strengths
  • Or, support you to separate with grace and integrity if that is your chosen path

For Couples, the emphasis is on your relationship although by looking at how your relationship is with your partner, you will begin to understand how your relationship is affected by both your pasts. By its very nature, couples work is more directive than individual work and tends to be shorter term.

Thought of the Month

"All life is a boomerang. We receive what we give."
Shirley MacLaine

We are often attracted to our partner because they have admiral qualities that we wish we had ourselves (often these aspects were shut down in us as children). Rather than trying to change the irritating aspects of our partners, one way of improving our relationships is to grow in ourselves the qualities that we admire in them. In that way, there is a double benefit; both for the individual and the relationship. I work with couples to explore the troubling aspects of the relationship so that there is both personal and relationship growth.
