About

Are you looking for couples therapy that actually works? You and your partner may be going through some very normal difficulties related to the stressors affecting you both. This can be due to the stage of relationship you are in, each of your needs not being met, as well as financial and family pressures. Mentalisation Based Therapy for couples is a specialist Psychological therapy that supports you to reach your goals. The skills that you learn will increase empathy and compassion for each other, develop a deeper understanding of yourselves and set up a shared framework for dealing effectively with challenges.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with specialist qualifications in Couples and Family Therapy. I have been working successfully with couples in the UK and New Zealand for the past 20 years. All couples experience difficulties in their relationship. Sometimes physical or mental health challenges add to this, but with commitment, these too can be overcome.
The first step is to call me and we will have a chat about what difficulties you are facing as a couple and how I can help. Then I will meet with each of you to discuss what you would want to get out of an initial couples session. Our first session will be about sharing each other’s perspectives and creating some shared goals to work on.
