Couple counselling/Relationship counselling This is ideal for people who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship with one another. It is for couples, married or partners, Mother and adult child, Father and adult child (over 16yrs) and families Would we be seen separately at first ? No. The difficulty is in the relationship, and this is where the solution is to be discovered, enabling each person to be fully "heard" and understand each other is one of the keys to resolution. Do I stay, or leave my partner ? Leaving a relationship can be a difficult and challenging process, and more so, if there are children involved. I appreciate that you will have important material to explore and understand about each other, even though you may be separating. I do not take sides, or steer you in any particular direction. What is it like seeing a couples counsellor ? Each individual will be listened to in a fair and objective way, without taking sides. I will genuinely try to understanding and value each clients position and feelings equally, and the different things you would hope to get from counselling. At times during the session, I will frequently communicate each individual persons position in a clear and understandable way to the other party, so that they can fully "hear" it in a non-defensive way. Sometimes one client believes that the relationship is over, and the other is trying desperately for it to continue. Each person and their position will be held in equally high regard, without steering outcomes in any particular direction.
