About me and my therapy practice

A very warm welcome to The Love Clinic. I am Andrea Tibbitts, a BACP Accredited, and Internationally Certified, Individual, Couple and Family Therapist and Coach. Whether you would like to experience greater happiness, or improve your relationship with yourself, your partner, or members of your family, I am here for you. 

As an individual, you may be unhappy in your situation, or stuck in a behavioural pattern. Maybe you are struggling with low self-esteem, stress, anxiety or depression, or you are looking for relationship support of your own. You do not have to do this journey alone. It is my heart to come alongside you, and help you come home to the true version of you. 

I have helped couples with increasing distance and distress, escalating fights, marriage breakdown, the discovery of an affair, separation, loss of libido, a discrepancy in sexual desire, domestic abuse, anger management, conflict resolution, differences in parenting, and feeling that they no longer liked each other, let alone loved.

You might be struggling in one of these hard places in your relationship. Maybe you wonder whether you are actually compatible, or whether you can find your way back to each other.  Maybe the two of you are divided on if you even want to try... If you identify with any of these then my heart goes out to you, and I would like to offer you the support and strategies you need to potentially transform your relationship from distress to success.  

Or maybe your family dynamic feels stuck with no one quite getting their needs met. It is common for the tension to be between two people especially, but it is likely that you are all suffering.   Family therapy can be powerful to deal with the root issues, and bring a shift towards connection.

Whatever recurring unhappy cycles you are stuck in, within yourself or with others, my heart goes out to you. It would be my privilege to help you ‘come home to happy’, and flourish as an individual, as a couple, and as a family. 

Practice description

As an Emotionally Focused Therapist there are 3 stages to the recovery roadmap for connection therapy:

De-escalating, Restructuring and Consolidating

We will start by de-escalating your negative cycle and then follow a roadmap of addressing the underlying causes, repairing your ruptures and embedding the changes that you have made. The goal is for you to enjoy deeper connection, either with the struggling parts of your heart, or with loved ones.

My heart is to resource you. So on our journey together I draw from my unique toolkit to personalise your recovery, and take you from surviving to thriving.  

As a Therapist trained to Level 2 in The Gottman Method, I have access to these resources as well. 

My heart is to resource you. With this in mind my No.1 Bestseller book 'Marriage Makeover: Make Yours Great' is available on Amazon.

In summary I offer 4 services across Individual, Couple & Family Therapy:

1. Connection therapy 

The Family Therapy service is offered for family members aged 13 upwards. After an initial family assessment the sessions focus in on the most troubled dyads. 

2. Coaching for personal growth 

3. Clarifying through Discernment counselling for mixed agenda couples, where one is leaning in and one leaning out of the relationship

4. Courses online with optional mentoring. 

I am passionate about restoring harmony in your heart and your home, so you can live a life you love. It would be a privilege to come alongside you with sensitivity, compassion and acceptance My heart is for you to 'come home to happy', as an individual, as a couple and as a family.

You are welcome to reach out to me for a free 15 minute telephone or video conversation, and you will be met with TLC at The Love Clinic.

My first session

You will be given a warm welcome at The Love Clinic. 

Your first session is an informal assessment. Whether you attend as an individual, as a couple, or as a family, it will be an opportunity for you to share your recent experience of the situation from your perspective, and what you would be looking for from our time together. 

It is also helpful for me to understand what the catalyst has been for your decision to try therapy now.

If you have had previous experience of seeking help for your presenting problem, it will be really important to share what that was like for you too, and in particular what caused you to now seek support elsewhere.

Having gleaned an insight into your current source of distress and goals of therapy, I will introduce you to the roadmap for your recovery, and how it will be tailored to you. If you come for Couple therapy this first session will be followed by an individual session with each of you. If you come for Family Therapy then the plan for the subsequent sessions will be formed from the assessment information. However, the focus will be on those dyads within the family that are presenting with the most distress. Therefore most sessions will only be for those caught in that negative cycle, rather than for the whole family.

I offer a free 15 minute online consultation if you would like this before booking your first session.  Most importantly this will give us a chance to meet. However it will also give you the opportunity  to ask me your burning questions, and it will offer me the chance to explain more to you about how I work both therapeutically and practically.

I look forward to hearing from you and supporting you on your heart journey. You deserve the opportunity to 'come home to happy'.
