I believe we would all benefit from knowing we have a “safe space” to speak to somebody who is unbiased, supportive and understanding. My aim is to ensure that my genuine down-to-earth approach will enable you both to feel comfortable enough to open about what is going on for you in your relationship.
I will not take sides or pass judgement or attribute ‘blame’ in any way. Instead, I will ask you all the right questions in order to understand what is not working as well as you would like it to, from both your points of view.
Your reason for seeking relationship counselling might be to “re-boot” your relationship, so you have a happier, more fulfilling future together. I will do everything to ensure you both feel safe and heard. The counselling space is an equal opportunity for you to share how you feel, the reasons for this and hopefully learn to see things from the other person’s perspective.
I will then help you learn new, more effective communication tools and strategies. These will be around understanding the other person’s feelings and thoughts, increasing respect for each other and improved communication.
A positive relationship counselling experience can, amongst other things:-
Improve intimacy between you
Improve your feelings of self-worth in the relationship
Help you both recognise and reduce negative and self-sabotaging behaviours
Leave you feeling more comfortable asking for your needs to be met within the relationship.
Alternatively. perhaps one or both parties feel a separation is inevitable and want help in doing so more amicably. As a neutral person I will support you in doing so whilst maintaining respect and compassion for each other.
