About Relationship Counselling
A good space to talkRelationship counselling provides a safe and neutral space to talk about anything that concerns you.
Often difficult issues become hard to discuss at home. Many people value speaking to someone who is outside of the situation and will not judge or take sides.
Counselling can enable you to talk more easily. In couples and family counselling, you can hear better what the other person has to say.
"What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself."
Understanding and making changes
The conversation will aim to broaden your understanding of what is important to you in your relationships.
We will look at what is happening in your life at the moment and make connections to ideas and experiences from different times in your life such as:
When you were growing up
Previous relationship experiences
Incidents and patterns in this relationship
Other influences in your life at the moment
Your hopes for the future
Understanding produces ideas of how to make helpful changes.
It provides an opportunity to experiment with different, more preferred, ways of being.
What Conditions Can it Help?
As an individual you may want to come on your own to work with any of your relationship concerns.
This could be:
From the past or the present or about your future hopes
To work out what's important to you, what you value most in life
About your relationship with any significant, influencial people in your life such as partners, family, friends, or colleagues
It might be about a particular incident or a repeating pattern you've noticed in your relationships
For your couple relationship
In couples counselling, this approach is helpful for a variety of problems which could include:
Arguments and rows
Feeling unsatisfied in the relationship
Sex and intimacy difficulties
You or your partner experiencing depression
Difficult changes in your life
For your family relationships
Family counselling can help you communicate better together and manage changes in the family.
This could be changes due to:
Separation and divorce
The loss of a family member
Different life stages
Significant life events such as redundancy or health problems
Relationship counselling is not suitable for situations where there is on-going Domestic Abuse.
The number of sessions
The number of sessions can vary depending on the concern but the average number of sessions is around 6 to 8.
These are normally weekly initially so you can expect the counselling to be over 2 to 4 months.
Individuals, couples and families are all charged the same rate of £50 per 50 minute session. I ask that sessions are paid in advance.
During the next few months I am offering to reduce my fee to £35 per session for those severely financially impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Appointments are available on weekday daytimes and evenings
What Benefits can be Expected?
It can be very challenging facing concerns at first but many clients also experience relief that they are starting to address difficulties.
Relationship counselling gives you a golden opportunity to take a careful look at what's happening so that new choices can be made.
Real changes occur when these new understandings are combined with trying out different ways of being in your important relationships. Changes could be about: how you plan your time; ways of communicating and showing love to each other; how to feel closer to one another; how to solve problems together; and making some decisions on big issues.
