Availability at short notice, for regular or intensive couples therapy.
I have been qualified as a counsellor for 26 years, work only with couples, and usually online. I offer either session by session couples therapy, or focused and intensive support to couples within a single session, as described here: I'll encourage you to quickly identify your best hopes and for us to collaboratively work out how you will achieve them. There'll be a comprehensive pre-session questionnaire, the appointment itself lasting four hours (with breaks of course), and a detailed follow up summary report, including a list of resources to support you going forward.
In a single online meeting we will delve deeply into your issues, dynamics and needs without the interruptions you would have between sessions over an extended period. The condensed nature of the session can foster a sense of motivated urgency and focus, leading to a more efficient route to the kind of relationship you would like to build.
Couples experiencing acute conflict or crisis can benefit from the intensive work that can be undertaken in a long single session. A substantial period of time dedicated to exploration, reflection and guidance will assist in preventing issues from escalating further, and engender the impetus to kickstart positive changes. Similarly, partners with more long-term patterns of disconnection, disenchantment, harsh conflict, poor communication or lost passion can learn a wide range of highly effective skills, tailored to your exact situation, in our one session.
Traditional couples therapy can involve many meetings over an extended period of time. In contrast, single session therapy offers a cost-effective alternative, especially for couples seeking focused support within a limited timeframe. It may be particularly appropriate if you have extremely busy schedules.
