About me and my therapy practice
I am currently offering Couples Counselling and one-to one Relationship therapy via Zoom. If lockdown restrictions allow then it may be possible to meet face to face for the first session before settling in to regular video conference sessions.
Couples therapy on line works surprisingly well. It appears to offer some practical benefits such as not having to match three diaries or not having to make child care arrangement and of course not getting stressed about traveling and finding parking.
The experience of sitting side by side with your partner and sharing your struggles with a stranger remains a powerful experience in any medium. If you are thinking about the possibility I would encourage you both to book a single first session and then to decide on whether you would like to go forward on a regular basis.
So what do the sessions look like? How do they work? How can therapy help? All seemingly simple questions. Perhaps therapy can provide you with some of the tools you need to make your relationship take the shape you wish it to. Perhaps it could shift the dynamic into a better place or empower you to leave the swamp of depression in order to clear the space for a sweeter experience. Or even to find in couples counselling the strength to leave a failing relationship or work through complex issues, such as betrayal, in order to rebuild again a new start, a new trust and love.
If I have made it sound a little too easy, it isn’t- but the process itself is straightforward; above all it takes commitment. Commitment to each other and the process of change itself.
My first session
Sessions generally last 50 minutes but the first session lasts an hour and a quarter, in order to set out in some depth the existing problems you would like to address.
At the end of that session you can both take your time to reflect on how it went and whether you would like to commit to continuing on a more regular basis. Obviously it needs both of you to want to do this.
I would hope that working with me could restore resilience and a facilitate a move towards the quality of relationship that you once had or even one that has never yet existed but that you both dreamed you could achieve.
Perhaps you have simply longed to allow yourself to feel loved and to be able to offer love safely again; to allow love and intimacy to co-exist in unison.
