Couples Therapy / Marriage Counselling

Relationships are at the heart of our lives, and have a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves, our families and our wider community.  When a relationship becomes difficult it can be very painful for both people, and you can feel that there is nowhere to turn to get it unstuck.  Relationship problems can have a wide range of causes, from external pressures like redundancy or money worries, to issues such as health or fertility problems, family difficulties, or loss of trust because of addiction, or the discovery of an affair.  Sometimes the problems can be deep rooted in the past.

It can be very painful to come to the point of acknowledging that you need support, and then to seek that help together.  If communication has become difficult or even impossible, seeking help can seem an insurmountable task.  It can be equal parts courage and desperation that bring a couple for counselling.  If it has become too distressing to be able to think clearly, and things seem completely stuck, then it can seem overwhelming to try to find a way through on your own.

Exploring issues together in a safe environment, with an impartial, empathetic person, can enable the possibility of a different way of being together, and open the possibility for change.  Having a safe, confidential space in which you can hear each other and think about the issues together can help mutual understanding and empathy to emerge, and support the possibility of healing, real change and growth in your relationship.

Couples therapy can help with self-discovery, improved communication, mutual respect and tenderness, improved intimacy and sexual relationships, increased confidence, and better family relationships.

It can also provide support for issues such as separation and divorce, and life events such as retirement or chronic illness.
