Couples Counselling in North London 

Although often distressing, problems in couple relationships are normal. Whatever the actual 'problem' might be, most people start to feel anxious and fearful when they experience their partners as too distant, having lost connection, understanding and communication.  This would seem to be the case whatever the sexual orientation of the couple in question. Couples counselling or couples therapy, can quickly diffuse tension and conflict, paving the way towards more positive and productive communication. This reinivites closeness and connection which strengthens relationahips and promotes the intimacy sought by so many. 

If we can view a repetitive problem differently, our success at resolving the issues increases dramatically. Couples counselling sessions effectively builds the framework through which your progression can happen.

A sudden or new situation can shake our confidence in the foundations of what we thought we had, but here lies the opportunity to re-evaluate things. It is within your couples counselling sessions that you can both develop.

At times of stress we can often find ourselves ill-equipped to reflect on what has happened and why things have gone wrong.

Difficulties can arise at any point and they offer a clear dilemma; will we look at this problem now or will we ignore it once again?

I view a crisis or difficulty as an opportunity to take stock, gain clarity and invite change. Because our lives and relationships will change, it is how we meet these situations that becomes crucial to our long-term happiness. Although this may seem daunting, even frightening, the rewards for our courage will be an expanded understanding of ourselves and others.
