Work with couples

In my work with couples I expect to work with a broad range of relationship issues. I can work either over short-term or longer terms. the work tends to be weekly but occasionally can be fortnightly. I would normally only see both members of the couple together, although there can be exceptions.

The issues i work with often include:

  • anger
  • parents splitting up
  • sexual difficulties
  • jealousy
  • fear of closeness
  • enhancing mutual understanding
  • taking appropriate responsibility for one’s actions
  • communication difficulties
  • the aftermath of an affair
  • problems with commitment
  • exploring thoughts and feelings that feel silenced
  • balancing assertiveness and aggression
  • refinding mutual curiosity
  • countering repetitive patterns
