Couples therapy

I am trained and experienced in working with heterosexual and lesbian/gay couples using a psychodynamic model.

These sessions emphasise developing good listening and understanding between those present. Maintaining feelings of safety between people is important and progress needs to be made at a gentle pace. It gradually becomes possible to understand the dynamics that may in part arise from earlier life relationships, existing pressures from lifestyle or conflicting expectations. Sexual difficulties may be brought to light leading to new understanding.

Couples sessions normally take place at 2 - 3 weekly intervals

Confidential enquiries are welcome from anyone feeling concern about their present relationship.
