Relationship & Couples counselling in Birmingham
There are various reasons you may be looking to work with me as a couple, this might be to work on and improve your relationship, or perhaps you feel your relationship is coming to an end and you’re looking for a way to bring it to a conclusion amicably and thoughtfully. Within the bounds of working on and improving your relationship, this could again cover a whole range of areas, from the way you communicate with each other (not just with words), your level’s of intimacy to different goals you may have as individuals that seem at odds with you as a couple.
In the work we would be doing, the relationship itself will form the core focus. To explore and understand this co-creation between you. Whilst your relationship needs to meet your needs, it also needs to meet the needs of your partner. In doing this, you create a relationship that works for you both. At present it might feel that one partner is getting their needs met and not the other, or perhaps neither partner is.
The work will involve both partners being heard equally, and both your needs & wants being understood. By working together on your relationship, you form a bond and collaboration to get what you both want from your relationship. The work will aim to lead to a situation where your individual and joint needs are met, that the relationship you create gives you more than you could have without it.
As with all therapy the process can be difficult and at times feel uncomfortable, however, working together we will address the issues that currently hold you back from having the relationship that you want. The environment which the therapy space provides will facilitate openness and trust as we all work together to ensure your relationship is as healthy and enjoyable as it can be.
I offer lunchtime and evening sessions so that it is more convenient for you to attend together, as I appreciate trying to get calendars to sync is often difficult. I also offer a fixed session price for both single and couples work, as I don’t see why you should have to pay more because there are two of you and after all it’s your relationship we’re working on. I can often be flexible on the times that I offer too, so please get in touch and let’s see if we can start to get your relationship feeling as you’d like it to.
