Hi, I'm Mark a counsellor who specialises in working with couples who have disconnected and wish to rediscover their emotional bond through better forms of empathic communication and achieve healthy confrontation to help de-escalate cycles of conflict where they are blaming, attacking and withdrawing from one another. My aim is work with them to reach a place where they once again feel like a team who can resolve things in a healthy way. Other issues covered include discovering each other's love language and rebuilding trust. I provide online counselling using Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp and phone counselling.
I work with couples using a style called emotionally focused therapy. This looks at the pattern of conflict a couple find themselves in and the roles they play within it e.g.one person could be the pursuer who attacks, while the other is the withdrawer who defends, setting up a vicious cycle where the real emotions behind the cycle are not being addressed.
I believe strongly that however your disconnection has happened as a couple you can find healing and recapture and nuture your emotional bond, which you forged when you first fell in love together. I would be glad and privileged to help you on that journey. I have 20 years experience during which time I have worked with couples, individuals and youth.
