 PROFESSIONAL, EXPERIENCED, COUPLES & INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING
My clients tell me over and over how safe and hopeful they feel working with me, right from the first meeting. Whether you are seeing me for help with your relationship struggles or as an individual moving through anxiety or loss or frustration that your life is not going the way you hoped it would, you can begin to positively change your life today. 
 
COUPLES and MARRIAGE COUNSELLING
Despite your greatest efforts, you may find yourselves swinging between hope and despair in your efforts to communicate.  Often when we are desperately longing for our partner to open up and let us in or to accept us rather than criticize us, we get caught in a negative cycle of miscommunication that drives us apart, leaving us feeling alone and in pain. I will help you to slow down the cycle and learn a new way to communicate - a new language of love.
 
My therapeutic approach involves one of the most  successful approaches to couples and relationship therapy, EFT - Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples.

Research shows that 86% of couples completing couples counselling based EFT, a highly researched attachment-based approach, report experiencing greater happiness in their relationship with results that last. I can support you and your partner to discover effective ways to reach for each other, that bring you closer rather than leaving you caught in a negative dance.
 
 In the first stage, I will help you discover how to calm the negative cycle that seems to take over your relationship, setting the stage for a new way to communicate with each other.
 
In stage two,  I will help you to continuing creating the safety to look beneath the surface and discover a deeper reality that brings you and your partner closer - into more loving understanding and connection. As you find new ways of communicating you will deepen the bond of safety and love, inviting the spark of  intimacy back into your relationship.
 
 In Stage 3 I help you consolidate the gains you've made to last for a life time of love.
 
My therapeutic approach to couples counselling is based on the work of Dr. Sue Johnson and  Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, a highly researched, successful, evidence-based approach.  I recommend that my clients read her book, "Hold Me Tight".  Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love and her second book, "Love Sense" The Revolutionary New Science of Romantic Relationships.

 INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING:
Are you longing to experience purpose, joy and connection in your life?  Do you feel stuck in cycles of anxiety and worry?   Do you stress about whether you are going to be able to create the life and relationships you want?  Is the feeling of loss overwhelming you?


I can help you move through painful blocks that keep you feeling stuck and frustrated or sad and alone.  Drawing on proven therapeutic methods, I will support you to understand and release relationship and life strategies learned in your family of origin that may no longer serve you.  In a collaborative , supportive process, you can step out of old limiting beliefs into deeper understanding and the discovery of hope and expanded possibilities.  I will support you to take the steps needed in your inner journey to move through blocks toward your dreams and goals.
