What does couples therapy involve?
I am not a referee, as a couples counsellor is an educator and coach. I give couples tools to go away with so that they apply that knowledge in future situations.
I have a relatively high profile in this city. How can I trust you to help me yet still maintain my privacy? Will I encounter other clients coming and going? I work from a home office and have minimal clerical assistance. More often than not I schedule a gap between clients so you are unlikely to see anyone coming or going.
I love my alcohol and need it to wind down after a stressful work day and I like to drink with my friends. I find it difficult to drink in moderation now. I find I have no “off button”. Are you able to help me? My partner is not happy with my drinking and I am starting to feel I go over the top on occasions too.
How can someone understand and help us sort out our sex life when we can’t even bear looking at each other now?
Grief is overwhelming me. Can you offer me anything at all to help me cope?
When you have lost someone near to you it feels as though life may never be the same again. It is however the case that there are techniques that we can teach you to give you some relief from the emotional pain caused by loss and grief.
People have suggested that I try hypnosis to give up smoking? I have always worried about losing control if I am put under hypnosis. What will happen if you hypnotise me?
