Welcome to couples counseling, where you will find a safe and supportive space to navigate the complexities of your relationship. As a therapist, I am trained in the psychodynamic approach, which allows me to deeply understand how relationships operate on a psychological level. Additionally, I have received specialized training in intimate partners therapy through the esteemed Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology. This training has equipped me to integrate various therapeutic modalities, including emotionally focused therapy, Imago therapy, and Gottman's therapy.My passion lies in helping couples work through their challenges and discover a path towards a happier and healthier relationship. I believe that every couple has the potential to overcome their obstacles and create a stronger bond. With empathy, understanding, and evidence-based techniques, I am committed to guiding you and your partner on this journey of healing and growth.In couples counseling, we will explore the dynamics within your relationship, identify patterns of communication and behavior, and uncover underlying emotional needs. By fostering open and honest dialogue, we can address unresolved conflicts, strengthen your emotional connection, and enhance intimacy.I understand that each couples relationship is unique, and therefore my approach is tailored to the  specific needs of the Relationship.I help couples make sense of relationship distress, and more importantly help them  understand and change negative patterns, into more secure and safe connections. 

 Couples seek counselling for a number of reasons, including but not limited too:

  • feeling detached from the relationship

  • Infidelity/lack of trust

  • Difficulty communicating

  • High conflict/rows

  • Affairs or mistrust

  • Sex and Intimacy difficulties

  • Separation / Divorce 

  My goal is to help couples become more conscious and intentional about their communication, so that they can create a supportive, loving relationship. Get in touch to learn more about how I can help you.

Drifting Apart

It can be easy for couples to drift apart over time, the distractions  of life, family, money and kids can take our focus and steer us off in different directions, without us even recognising it. That lovely feeling of closeness, fun and intimacy has dwindled. Those deep meaningful conversations, turn into superficial brief chats usually about work, money or moans etc, those days of being passionate turn into a quicky here and there and even though you still love each other you feel disconnected, and it can feel more like your room mates. Communication is by far the single biggest aspect that holds couples together or tears them apart.

Does one or both of you spend a lot of your couple time with a phone in front of your face? The biggest issue I see with couples who are drifting apart is that they have forgoton how to prioritize their relationship. They  have stopped talking about their  feelings, wants, needs, desires and hopes and dreams. If you are reading this the chances are you are would like help getting your relationship back on track. Maybe you or your partner have some trauma or bad communication habits that are getting in the way. If this resonates with you get in touch and see how I can help  you understand what’s going wrong, and what you need to do in order to get back on track Dawn x
