Couples Counselling and Relationship issues
Many couples have periods of difficulty. Relationships can be wonderful, but also stressful and challenging where a partner changes from being the most treasured friend, to the cause of the deepest anguish and insecurity. I will work with you to gain greater understanding of yourselves and each other in a safe and non judgmental environment, and help you to become a more harmonious couple. In some cases it may be more appropriate to separate; I will work with you to ensure this process is managed sensitively and respectfully.
Depression can be debilitating, causing feelings of isolation, sleep disturbance, either loss of appetite or binge eating and much more. Simply being able to talk to another person about your inner world in a safe environment, can help you to reconnect with hope and optimism.
Fear and anxiety can prevent you from leading a fulfilled life, can lead you to be an over protective parent, or even to miss out on job opportunities/promotion application. I will work with you to raise awareness and to find the bolder side of you that can allow both yourself and others live with greater ease and joy.
Each bereavement has its own distinctive story. From disbelief to relief, anger and periods of desolation, I will work with you to find your way of living with your bereavement, and help you to re-connect and re-find meaning in your life.
