Counselling, Psychotherapy, EMDR and Supervision
Couples or other family members may wish to work on aspects of their relationship. My focus is on trying to understand the unmet emotional needs which underlie current difficulties and to develop a shared appreciation of their contextual and personal meaning. This understanding is used to find more mutually satisfying ways of relating. I do not give advice, but offer feedback based on my understanding of what I observe. In addition, I usually make practical suggestions from the start to help you work towards your own solutions. Session lengths are negotiable; sometimes an hour and a half is a more productive session length. Meetings are usually weekly at first, but may then be spaced more widely to make space for experimentation, change and reflection. My charge is £50 for 55 minutes, or £75 for an hour and a half, a time most couples find more productive.
