Actualize Couples Counselling
My approach to couples counselling draws upon systemic theory and practice.  Rather than working with you and your partner as individuals, and trying to solve the ‘problem person’ in the relationship, we would explore how you interact and relate to each other, define the issues that drive your conflicts, and makes sense of your relationship history and how you've arrived where you are today.

Couples often experience difficulties when the family values we're raised with come into conflict; however, differences can enrich relationships if we recognise and accept them.  Affairs and the betrayal of trust can jeopardise the future of a relationship, leaving both partners distant and disconnected.  And sometimes, after the first flush of love, we're left feeling that there's a huge gap between what we''d expected from each other and what we've actually got.  Of course, every relationship is unique and the difficulties you're experiencing will be unique to you.

A lot of the work in couples counselling is around encouraging a greater mutual understanding, recognising how and why things have changed from the early days when you were in the first flush of love, and discovering new ways to make lasting changes.

By providing a safe and secure space, I can support you both to explore problems openly and honestly, to gain a deeper understanding of each other, and to develop a deeper intimacy.

I charge £25 for the initial couples counselling session.

Ongoing sessions cost £45-60

My fees are on a sliding scale and I invite clients to pay at a level they feel comfortable with.
