Counselling. Wherever you may be.

Relationship Counselling: Empathetic Support

When coming to me for relationship counselling, I will do my utmost to ensure there is a sense of safety, space, emotional availability, fair support and balanced understanding.


I am an eclectic therapist, and make use of multiple therapy models, theories and techniques to support you and your partner.


I adopt a very adaptable and multi-faceted approach to couples therapy that allows me to employ the most effective methods available to address each individual couple and client's needs.


Based on my training and extensive experience in counselling and coaching, I work with up-to-date research-based techniques and studies in the field of relationship therapy, sexology and attachment theory.


I offer an ethically conscious, individually tailored, judgment-free and moral-bias free approach to my work.


My interest in this area includes writings by the pioneer of attachment theory, the psychologist and psychiatrist John Bowlby, the insightful and original voice of human relationship psychotherapist and author, Esther Perel, and work by the innovator of Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and individuals, Dr Susan Johnson.

Relationship counselling, also known as couples therapy, couples counselling or marriage counselling, is a type of therapy that helps couples identify and resolve conflicts in their relationship. I refer to this counselling as relationship counselling as intimate relationships are not necessarily confined to a couple, or just two people. 


Relationship counselling can help couples navigate the early stages of their relationship. I encourage anyone who wishes to invest in being the best versions of themselves for the relationship they are building together to seek support. It's like providing the healthiest soil we can possible provide to a fledgling tree, recognising and celebrating all our extraordinarily diverse human needs, personalities and limitations.


Relationship counselling is of invaluable support to the relationship of  couples who are struggling with a variety of issues, such as communication problems, family issues, cultural, religious or social perceptions and difficulties, questions or challenges related to intimacy, or emotional or physical infidelity. 

Some of the many ways that relationship counselling can benefit couples include:

Improved Communication

One of the primary benefits of relationship counselling is that it can help improve communication between partners. Many couples struggle to communicate effectively, which can lead to misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and a breakdown of the relationship. In couples counselling, a therapist can help you and your partner learn to communicate more openly and effectively, so you can better understand each other's needs and feelings.

Conflict Resolution

Relationship counselling can also help you and your partner learn to resolve conflicts in a healthier way. Instead of fighting or ignoring problems, couples can learn to approach conflict in a constructive manner. A therapist can help you and your partner develop problem-solving skills and strategies for managing conflicts, which can improve your overall relationship.

Improved Intimacy

Relationship counselling can also help improve intimacy between partners. This can be especially important for couples who are struggling with issues such as a lack of sexual desire. A therapist can help you and your partner explore underlying issues that may be impacting your intimacy and help you develop strategies for improving physical and emotional connection.


Increased Self-Awareness

Couples counselling can help increase self-awareness in both partners. By exploring your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, you can gain a better understanding of yourself and your role in the relationship. This increased self-awareness can help you make positive changes and improve your relationship.

Increased awareness of the another's perspective

It's normal to get absorbed by our own feelings. It's not a matter of being selfish. It's just very natural to be able to have a better understanding of our own situation than it is of another's. A therapist can help with communication and help clarify miscommunication so that we learn to experience situations more objectively and are better equipped to understand things from our partner's perspective. 


Coping Strategies 

Relationship counselling can also help with coping with the inevitable challenges that arise in our relationships. It is natural that conflicts and disagreements arise when two individuals with their own different backgrounds and expectations form a relationship together. With the therapist's guidance you can learn valuable coping mechanisms that help deal with difficult emotions that negatively impact the relationship. By addressing issues as they arise, you can also avoid letting small problems grow into larger ones, learning skills and strategies for maintaining a healthy relationship, which can help with managing any future conflicts and issues.


By improving communication, resolving conflicts, increasing intimacy, increasing self-awareness, and preventing future problems, relationship counselling can help you and your partner build a stronger, healthier relationship.
