Jane Gilbert MA, MBACP, Relate Registered Practitioner
I am a Relationship and Bereavement counsellor offering individual, couple and family sessions. I work as a Couple and Family Therapist with Bedfordshire and Luton Relate and as a Supervisor for Hertfordshire Cruse. My private practice is in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.
Talking to somebody in confidence can make a positive difference. I work in an Emotionally Focused way (https://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/200901/hold-me-tight). Emotionally Focused Therapy can refresh your relationship with your family as well as your romantic partner. It is a research-based approach providing the support needed to reconnect and rebuild safety and trust; ideal for couples who feel trapped in an unhealthy relationship cycle. Most fights are really protests over emotional disconnection. Underneath the distress, partners are desperate to know: Are you there for me? Do you need me? Do you rely on me?
