Have you or your partner had an affair?
Have you drifted apart over the years?
Do you struggle to find a partner?
Do you wish relationships were easier?
If you have answered yes to any of these, you might benefit from having someone to talk to. We can explore these and much more in a therapeutic environment. Relationships are what I specialise in. I work with individuals with a relationship focus, couples, families, and individuals who live or work in a group.
A ‘relationship’ is classified as connection between people. This can be between romantic partners, parent and child, parents, siblings, friends, colleagues, team mates, boss and employee. If any of these relationships are difficult, you may like to explore the reasons why you aren’t getting on well and resolve them.
Relationship therapy is slightly different from general counselling in that the approach is more systemic than any other approaches and theories.
What this means is that I look at the family system as a whole, so I would ask you about your family of origin and what your experiences were like as a child and growing up. Often we learn as children to imitate the adults in our lives and when we become adults, we automatically do what we had observed. We may draw a genogram (family tree) together to identify any themes and patterns of relating.
If this is something that interests you, please contact me and we can discuss further.
