Couples and Relationship Counselling

As a couples and relationship counsellor, I have to be:

“a strong enough presence to allow a new dialogue to take place among family members, and open enough to let you and your own solutions take centre stage”

Charles J. O’Leary

Couples and relationship counselling can feel incredibly daunting. Often clients come to couples counselling as a last resort or after a disclosure or trauma that has had a significant impact on one or both parties. Sometimes it is due to a more subtle break down in communication, a feeling of falling out of love or loss of intimacy. Sometimes it can be external pressures causing the relationship to struggle.

Whatever your reason for coming for couples or relationship counselling, my aim is to provide a space where each person can be heard, accepted and valued and where I can support you both to hear each other more clearly, understand each other more fully and therefore develop more clarity for the root causes of any issues and work out how you wish to move forward.

Couples therapy can help you at any stage of your relationship, regardless of marital status, age, race, faith, or sexual orientation.

Working with couples is for me not about deciding whether people should stay together or be apart. It is not a space where I will take sides or declare one party right and the other wrong. Nor will I be telling you what I think you need to do to heal the relationship. Whether you want to rebuild trust, rediscover intimacy, communicate better, resolve conflict more satisfactorily, manage wider family difficulties or indeed know how to end a relationship in a way that feels safe and healthy for both you and your family, I am there to help facilitate that journey.

I’m based in Edlesborough, Buckinghamshire UK, between Dunstable, Luton and Tring.
