A couple's delight in each other has turned to hatred, and their goodwill has degenerated into a battle of wills ... Both individuals are still searching for a way to regain their original wholeness, and they are still holding onto the belief that their partners have the power to make them healthy and whole." (Harville Hendrix, Getting the Love You Want)
Couples therapy provides a safe and non-judgemental environment in which you can more openly share your concerns about your relationship with your partner.
My role is to act as a mediator or "go between" helping you to improve your communication and to better understand your partner.
Aspects of the relationship that many couples struggle with include:
* managing conflict;
* different parenting styles;
* meeting your partner's needs;
* emotional, physical and sexual intimacy;
* emotional fusion/dependency ;
* ageing and sex;
* affairs and lack of trust;
* difficulties with your partner's family of origin - too much involvement.

Part of my role is to help you gain clarity about what you both want, whether you decide to stay together and make changes within the relationship or to part. If you decide to end your relationship, I will work with you to achieve this as amicably as possible.
My fee is £75 for a couples session of 60 minutes duration.
