Relationship & Marriage counselling
As a marriage guidance counsellor & relationship therapist of many years, I will support you to challenge those aspects of your relationship that have brought you here.
Couples therapy is challenging work but emotionally and financially cheaper than divorce. Surely you wish to surpass the angst of separation anxiety and the anguish that comes with ending a relationship they may not need to be ended?
Couples counselling offers new skills which, over time, will become the building blocks for the transformation of your relationship.
Communication, both verbal and through the body (kissing, touch, sensual and sexual intimacy) are at the forefront when relationships are breaking down.
Other acts of aggression focus on playing the 'blame game' and viewing the 'other' as the enemy. The 'silent' treatment, forced separation, berating and sulkiness can take us to a place of reaction, rage and counter behaviours that constantly damage one's self-worth.
In other cases, there is a lack of anger as couples regress into brother and sister or best-friend relational types. These come with ambiguity and avoidance which slowly strangles any hope of a sexually fulfilling and enjoyable life together as resentments build.
If you are at this stage I would suggest that you begin therapy as soon as possible, otherwise, years will pass and you will slowly give up any hope that you once had of the fulfilling relationship that you had hoped for.
Many couples have felt the devastation of infidelity. Infidelity raises issues of trust, shame, and guilt and can leave one or both parties bereft, angry, and feeling disgusted yet powerless.
During the counselling sessions, we will look at how you connect with your partner. We collaborate on exercises and try to unearth the deeper meanings in the to and fro of day-to-day interactions and sift through whether past relationships and family of origin shadows have been affecting your current behaviours towards each other.
A healthy home/sex/ creative play life is dependent on your willingness to make changes through invoking the four C'S of compassion, challenge, compromise and communication.
It is your choice...

Couples seek support for varied reasons including :
Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly depending on your needs and finances. There will be exercises and home tasks to help you to rediscover yourself and each other. I constantly remind clients of their boundaries and consent levels within a frame of 'safety first' to hold you in your process whilst navigating this journey with care and compassion.
In some cases, couples attend counselling sessions seeking a structured ending to their relationship. They wish to navigate the transition into solo and separate lifestyles and to develop a supportive co-parenting relationship with structured boundaries if children are involved. This is all possible through communication and mediation.

Relationship sex coaching
All relationships get staid and dull, right? They can indeed, but with a little bit of a spring clean you can develop into a new pleasure filled partnerships that meet both your needs.
Sensual and sexual coaching is focused primarily on techniques to enhance your bodily and emotional responses to each other. The focus may be around ejaculation control or vaginal numbness or raise issues where you wish to expand or introduce new sensual or sexual games with your partner.
Over the course of the sessions, we will focus on the likes and dislikes that affect your senses and tease out any others that may be linked. Together we will develop a better understanding of yourself and each other with the aim of enhancing your desires and future relationship.
This is a brief 6 session model that allows for a spring clean and tune-up for you and your relationship.
