I work with couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship and feel unable to resolve these. This may be due to a lack of communication and understanding between them. These difficulties may have arisen due to life changing events, including bereavement, an affair, financial difficulties and becoming parents. The aim of couple counselling is to enable the couple to improve their communication and understanding of each other. I provide short term and long term couple counselling.
I also work with individuals both short term and long term from a Gestalt approach. The closet translation for the German word Gestalt is 'whole' and the therapeutic approach considers all aspects of the whole person working creatively to accomodate the needs of the person. The emphasis of Gestalt therapy is working within the context of the present moment, maintaining an awareness of how the person's past experience may affect their lives now.
