Improving communication, resolving conflict and helping you move forward...
The road to an intimate, satisfying and emotionally mature relationship can be painful and bumpy. There are good times and hard times. Couples who work through the rough times tend to develop stronger bonds that make their relationships more satisfying. But when couples are unable to overcome the difficult times, their relationship starts to feel stuck. Frustration and anger builds and resentments increase.
What happened to the hopes and dreams you had at the beginning of your relationship?
How did the feelings you once had for each other change so much?
It can be really painful to realise that your relationship hasn’t turned out the way you thought it would. Even with the best of intentions to resolve their problems, couples don’t always have the necessary skills to work things through in a satisfactory way. Often, problems keep occurring and you end up feeling overwhelmed about what to do next to repair your relationship. Sometimes it gets to the point where it just feels hopeless.
If your relationship seems stuck in a negative rut that you can’t seem to get out of, relationship or couples counselling can help.
Due to its extensive research base, Gottman Method Couples Therapy underpins all of the relationship therapy that I do. The Gottman Method is an evidence-based approach which is backed by more than 40 years of research by Dr John Gottman into what makes relationships work.
This approach has been demonstrated through rigorous research to be effective in creating positive change in relationships and is widely regarded as one of the best approaches to couples therapy.

I have completed Levels 1, 2 and 3 of training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and receive ongoing supervision in this method with a Consultant and Master Trainer from within The Gottman Institute in the USA.
