Relationship Counselling

 

Every person has an emotional relating style. Emotions arise in all relationships.  It is when individuals begin to negotiate in relationships emotional tension starts to build due to conflicting styles.  How an individual deals with this tension and their attempts to create the relief through change affects how they are feeling in the relationship.

 

Often in life couples experience difficulties and this effects their;

 

  • Ability to communicate

  • How the couple make decisions together

  • Their sense of commitment to each other

  • Shuts down intimacy

  • Shuts down their sex life

 

My practice specialises in Relationship issues Couples and Individuals face, by helping them to understand and discuss;

 

  • How the relationship got in the position it is in

  • How the couple feel about each other

  • Explore how the couple can get back on track

  • Reaffirm and develop new agreements and decisions

 

In a safe environment we work towards creating an outcome where the parties have a sense of resolve.

 

My Relationship Counselling service is offered face to face, however I also offer Skype, Google hangout and face time for people unable to obtain childcare, live in remote areas or have special needs.

 

 

Divorce Counselling

 

Emotions exist and arise in all relationships. Shapiro (2003) says “In a negotiation, emotions occur within the context of a relationship.  A relationship is a mental representation of how a person perceives an association with another party.”[1]  [1] Shapiro D.L (2002) Conflict Resolution Quarterly, Vol. 20, No1, Fall Wiley Periodicals, Inc

 

Divorce Counselling helps people deal with their grief, loss and anger through the separation and divorce process. In this process we explore:

 

  • How a relationships changes

  • How to face and manage the grief and loss

  • How to process anger

  • Discover a parenting pathway and to move towards a Co-Parenting arrangement

  • Learning how to be single

  • Becoming able to face the prospect of a new and sustaining relationship

     

In a safe environment we work towards creating an outcome where the parties have a sense of resolve.
