Provides online therapy
I normally work Monday to Thursday. Weekend work is charged at the rate stated below plus 25%.
I have twenty five years counselling experience, work only with couples, and have embraced working with people online.
I use Gottman based interventions, and aim to make therapy sessions educative, gentle, collaborative, and occasionally even fun.
Too many relationships end, with accompanying heartbreak, not because the couple are fundamentally incompatible, but because they've never properly learned the skills needed to have a fulfilling and successful life-long connection. That's not surprising, as there are few obvious opportunities to learn those skills growing up, so we have to make it up as we go along, and most of us are clueless as hell. I can be helpful with the dissatisfaction that often seems to follow the initial besotted phase, repetitive conflict, communication problems, emotional disconnection, affairs, sexual issues, and unresolved childhood hurts that affect you.
You may be thinking that you just need someone to fix your partner, and everything will be alright. However, in all likelihood your partner is thinking something very similar about you, so I'll provide something a little more nuanced, with a comprehensive assessment to identify the dynamics that are causing problems, without blaming either of you. We'll look in detail at what the issues are, how they developed, and what needs to happen to get you back on track.
This three stage assessment will lead to detailed conclusions and recommendations for your specific situation. I'll suggest many different resources which will help you reach your best hopes for your relationship, including videos and exercises from the just released (October 2021) Gottman Relationship Builder. We then have a clear framework for the rebuilding of your relationship, supported by one hour meetings at whatever frequency seems appropriate. The three stage assessment fee is £700. Follow up meetings are £100. The material sent to you (including 90 Gottman videos) is included in those fees
