About me and my therapy practice

Are you and your partner struggling to communicate?

I work with individual and couples.

However, I specialise in working with neurodivergent couples, where typically, one or both individuals identifies as Autistic or as having ADHD.  The Mutual misunderstanding is not uncommon where there may be differences in the ways that our brains function, and we experience and understand the world.

The structure of Imago therapy, allows space and time for your differences,  increasing the chances of hearing and being understood by each other.

The ‘silent treatment’ may not be what you think.

Often, people are viewed as speaking or non-speaking, but this can be unhelpful.  For instance, some autistic people literally lose their words when feeling overwhelmed.  Without an explanation, a partner can feel rejected or as if they are being punished.

As an Imago Relationship Therapist, I help couples to identify the underlying causes of their relationship struggles, which may also include needs due to being neurodivergent.  Such insights enable couples to build a safe, loving, and intimate connection.

The Structure of each session is based on the Imago Dialoguing Process. Unlike a typical conversation, in dialoguing, we do not listen with the intent of giving an answer, but rather to really get the speaker. As a speaker, our intention is to be as easy to hear as possible, i.e. owning what we say instead of blaming our listener.

Imago Dialoguing adds to the sense of safety because the format is predictable.

Having supported couples in conflict, with dialoguing, I have found that practice has made it easier for them to:

see each other as individuals

value each other's perspective

address difficult issues

move towards shared relationship goals

The dialoguing process can be equally as effective between a parent and their adult child, or an engaged couple who want to explore any pre-marital 'niggles’.

If you are ready to use Imago Therapy to benefit your relationship, don't hesitate to get in touch.

My first session

The first session will be a time for me to collect basic details, such as your name, address, GP details and a little history.  It will also be a time for you to ask any questions and to share what you would like me to know, in the first instance.

It's a time to get a sense of whether or not we are a good fit, and to begin to clarify your goals for therapy.
