If you are a couple in County Durham, Consett or Newcastle and considering relationship counselling, but not sure if it is right for you, it might be helpful to consider some of the following:
HOW CAN RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING HELP?
Relationship counseling provides a confidential space where you can talk about your relationship with a trained counsellor who will be both respectful and objective.
When working with a couple, I aim to make sure that there is space and time for each of you to be heard.
As an outside observer, with over 30 years experience of offering paychotherapy to couples or individuals who are experiencing relationship difficulties, I will be able to provide some helpful feedback on your ways of relating.
Often the work will be about ways of improving communication to help you develop effective ways of talking together. This can help you both to understand each other better.
SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT I CAN SUPPORT YOU WITH:
Taking the first step
It can feel quite daunting to take that first step to begin counselling and it is important that you feel completely comfortable with me.
