What price do you put on your relationship and your mutual happiness and peace of mind?
Most couples go through tricky phases from time to time – some more than others!
When a relationship gets strained, it is easy to start to develop a cycle of blame with an associated failure to recognise and understand each other’s needs and feelings.
We believe that it is important to understand that each person in a relationship has their own unique personality as well as their own life experience and values that they bring to the partnership. No-one wants to be unhappy and you deserve the best relationship that you are capable of as a couple.
We offer a safe environment where you are encouraged to actively listen to each other and address any issues you may have in the confidential and discreet company of an experienced couples counsellor who will respect your particular circumstances and discuss the way ahead in a caring and non-judgmental way.
You can expect each session to allow you both to voice your feelings and be heard with a view to providing an objective and safe insight into your relationship with the longer term objective of fostering a secure attachment between you and a better understanding of how and why you interact in the way you do.
Why seek help from a professional?
We fully understand that at first, it can seem odd to invite a stranger to help you with the intimate feelings associated with your partnership.
Unfortunately, other people have a tendency to take sides when asked to comment on the relationships of those they know. Family and friendship ties and the ‘one sided’ recounting of a problem involving the two of you can almost inevitably lead to even more friction, confusion and resentment.
A professional couples therapist doesn’t take sides and has nothing to gain from being anything other than truthful and non-judgmental. He will help you to ‘mirror’ each other and by helping you both to see your unique relationship more clearly, help you to set clear goals and objectives to improve communication, identify and address destructive patterns of behaviour and move things forward towards a new, intimate and positively bonding mutual emotional respect.
