I support couples of all ages, stages, personalities and abilities in relationships to better relate to, understand and communicate with one another and increase their sense of connection. I specialise and am trained in Gottman Therapy which was developed by psychologists and husband and wife team, John and Julie Gottman, out of their almost 50 years of work researching and supporting couples to live more connected and fulfilling lives together.
I can support you with recognising and regulating difficult emotions and supporting one anothers triggers and needs during conflict.  I can support you with finding ways to communicate through challenging issues without them escalating.  I can support you to increase feelings of trust and connection.  I can also help where one or both partners are autistic.
When we get stuck in conflict, we can have a difficult time really understanding one another and seeing a way forward.  Gaining a better understanding very often opens up new solutions and reasonable compromises. Take the first step by sending me an email with your preferred contact method.
