I have specialised in relationship counselling and have evolved my therapeutic approach through extensive training and experience. I help couples who have difficulties with communication, conflict resolution, problem solving, parenting styles, intimacy, infidelity and trust issues.
I use well established and evidence-based approaches such as Emotionally Focused Therapy which has been developed by Susan Johnson www.iseft.org. This approach explores and addresses how couples communicate and connect and have their emotional attachment needs met. It helps clients identify blocks in their relationship such as different emotional and behavioural styles which are negatively repetitive and result in conflict and distress. The therapy is aimed at resolving these difficulties and improving their mutual understanding and systematically helps clients develop behavioural strategies to re-engage in a more emotionally rewarding positive relationship.
