MARRIAGE & COUPLE COUNSELLING
In my work with couples I use Imago Relationship Therapy, an effective and safe approach to helping individuals grow in their relationships. It presents a unique way of looking at and dealing with your interactions with your partner or spouse, and it supports you in your desire to get the love you want.
With a focus on how you perceive yourself and others, this form of counselling makes it possible to find wholeness within yourself and within the greater context of your relationship.
While many engaged couples focus on preparing for their wedding day, it is equally important for them to spend their engagement preparing for a strong, lifelong marriage, and the responsibilities and challenges that come with it.
Marriage preparation helps couples talk about issues that may not have come up while dating. Marriage preparation also provides couples with proven skills for tough times. The most important of these is growth in emotional intimacy and learning how to sustain this growth.
I offer marriage preparation by means of Skype for engaged partners who live in different countries.
This counselling provides a safe space for individuals who struggle with personal issues to talk confidentially about their concerns and to work towards personal growth.
My approach focuses on helping clients to deepen their self-understanding and personal development. Self-awareness grows when one learns to fully experience feelings and talk about them.
Ultimately, clients develop a better relationship with themselves and others – as well as learning essential coping strategies for life’s challenges.

After an upsetting and distressing incident, an unexpected and/or tragic loss, a near death experience or a threat to your life and safety, trauma counselling helps you to process the event, gain new perspectives, peace of mind, and to live your life meaningfully.
Trauma counselling is a structured interview that helps you to process the experience. It provides you with practical strategies to deal with the after-effects of a distressing experience.
Contact me if you have questions about the trauma you have experienced, make an appointment and let's start talking about it. The sooner the better.

The most beautiful people we have encountered are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion,
gentleness, and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.
