How can I help?
1) Marital, Couples and Relationship Issues
As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist I work with individuals and couples to understand the causes of their difficulties and rebuild love and connection in their relationships.
Couples often experience a breakdown of communication, that causes a fight and flight reaction. These may become repetitive cycle of self destructive behaviour were anger expressed spins out of control .A reduction of emotional closeness, trust and physical intimacy follows which can lead to crises in the relationship, affairs and even the threat of divorce.
Together we explore what you need, why there is disconnection and how you can get the relationship you want. A key to this is building open and calm communication in order to understand each other, resolve conflict and meet each others needs . We also focus on building greater appreciation, care and fun to reignite love and connection in the relationship.
Separation and Divorce Counselling
I also offer counselling for those who have decided to separate or divorce who want to end there relationship in an amicable way . There may be concerns about how best to manage the impact on children and boundary issues. Relationship counselling can support this process and help to end a relationship in a healthy way.
2) Overcoming Anxiety ( Generalised Anxiety Disorder & Panic attacks)
Anxiety comes from underlying fear. To overcome it, we need to understand what the fear is and what is causing it. Sometimes it can be based on illusory thinking, where a person focuses on the worst case scenario coming true. These thoughts need to be challenged so we can eliminate them. . When the fear is a real one, it needs to be confronted by taking appropriate action. There are times when anxiety is based on the influences from past experiences, which need to be addressed to resolve them.
3) Anger Management
Anger can wreak havoc in a person’s life. With anger management a person gains understanding into what’s triggering the anger and how to change the way you respond. This can be by expressing feelings in a healthy way, and taking appropriate steps to solve the underlying cause of the anger. In each case anger management is tailored to the needs of the clients.
Shorter therapy sessions of 30 minutes are also offered for individual clients wanting phone or online sessions and do not wish to commit to 50-60 minute sessions.
