Relationship, Marriage Context - What A Relationship, Marriage Means For

Us Being OK with another begins with being OK with ourself, so the relationship with ourself underpins our relationship with others. Relationships are essential to our resiliencewellbeing and happiness. Happy relationships don't happen by accident and only we can change what we do to make them happier. We can love someone yet being together can be challenging at times. We may have different contexts, needs, attitudes, expectations and models about a good relationship, marriage including whether it should last forever, be exclusive. Whatever our culture, sexuality, religion, matters of the human heart are universal, as is the complexity, pain and joys of human relationships with others. The relationship and marriage counselling can explore what a relationship, marriage means for us and what keeps us safe in it and also explores our primary relationship with our Self (for we can't be happy, fulfilled, in our relationship unless we are fulfilled and happy in ourself) alongside our relationship and communication style with our partnerothers.

My Specialisms

Issues People Bring To Counselling & Psychotherapy may include:

My aim is to bring clarity, sensitivity, and creativity to my work, with warmth, maturity, and humour, offering fresh insight in supportive, affirming ways. I have an impartial perspective, working both intuitively and with knowledge. Holding a perspective of self-determination, I view therapy as joint exploration, which may include exploring our resources, strengths, qualities alongside our limitations, frailties, vulnerabilities. Recognising we are all unique, I don't hold a "one size fits all", tick-box approach, acknowledging that no one counselling approach explains the complexities or holds the truth for everyone.

I value the humanity in us all and acknowledge our own resources, qualities and strengths alongside our frailties, limitations and vulnerabilities. I welcome, value and respect people's diversity, autonomy. My counselling experience includes working with men and women, old and young, who are straight, bisexual, lesbian and gay, whatever our sexuality, skin colour, of many nationalities and cultures, those who are religious, hold spiritual beliefs, atheist and agnostic What clients value the most is being comfortable with the counsellor and being in a collaborative relationship.
