Welcome to my Keynsham couples counselling page.
Couples counselling is different from individual counselling because it focuses on the relationship between the couple, rather than the therapist and the individual. It is a safe and calm place for a couple to enhance and work through communication issues, and to gain a deeper level of understanding as to why harmful patterns are occurring.
When two individuals enter a relationship, they carry with them unconscious scripts from their past which can affect their present way of relating. Couples can trigger each other unintentionally and thus arguments may arise. Within my session, I will help you find healthy ways of interacting and getting in touch with your truth within the relationship.
As a therapist, my role is to remain neutral, and non-judgemental, with whatever each person may bring.
I am always conscious of the importance of helping each couple in their own personal way, this is why I have decided to specialise in couples’ therapy and to combine my natural ability and my couples counselling training to help couples find their truth.
This usually happens within 6 to 12 sessions. I trained with Relate, where I acquired my level 5 certificate in couples counselling and have helped numerous couples navigate the challenges that a relationship can bring. I have had training in Transactional Analysis (TA), this work involves how we relate to the people around us.
Initially, we would meet for the first session to discuss how I can help you both to move forward; following that I usually recommend an individual session each to get a wider understanding of each person’s needs. We would then all come back together and continue with the work.
I work from Bath in a peaceful and calm environment. If you wish I can offer an initial free phone conversation to answer any questions you may have, and for you to get a feel for how I work as a therapist.
My prices are £60 per session.
