Couple, marriage and relationship counselling

When people start being in a relationship with each other, they often develop a belief that they must handle all they encounter alone.

What I can offer you both:

I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy in Fulham and Putney to couples in a marriage or any close relationship. With Individual and Couple therapy I will support you to make sense of the problems and challenges that inevitably occur during a relationship lifetime and to make positive changes.

I offer assistance in facilitating a respecting communication between you both, where you can together share your thoughts, feelings and experiences to establish common ground; this process holds the potential to transform challenges moving your relationship into a better and more fulfilling place.

I work in Fulham and Putney with couples who are: married, in a civil partnership, cohabiting or not, LGBT, heterosexual, in a partnership or co-parenting. I offer therapy to help to improve communication to people who are closely related.


Starting marriage and couple counselling

At times couples seeking therapy are concerned that their relationship is beyond help, communication might have broken down, trust might be eroded and sex might also be almost nonexistent.

Sometimes a sudden crisis emerges within a relationship and requires immediate attention.


When needed, I aim at offering an initial session within one business day of your first contact.

Partners come into couples counselling or relationship counselling with different needs and challenges to address including but not limited to:

  • Communication and conflict resolution
  • Rekindling sexual relationship infidelity
  • Fighting and anger problems
  • Dependence vs. independence
  • Jealousy
  • Co-parenting
  • Infertility and adoption
  • Money and finances
  • Divorce and separation
  • Family of origin issues
  • Gender roles
  • The complexities of stepfamilies
  • The right to happiness.

It is not unusual for one partner in a relationship to be reluctant to engage in couple counselling.

Our first session can often provide reassurance and a sense of the positive aspects of communicating, listening and understanding.


My approach to marriage and couple counselling

My approach is integrative and soulful, drawing from different approaches to reflect on particular issues and needs and honouring the interconnectiveness of body, mind and spirit.

Healthy communication is a key ingredient of a meaningful and fulfilling relationship. In our sessions we can explore different styles, interventions and techniques.

We might work on:

  • Identifying limiting patterns that are hindering the quality of your relationship.
  • Learning how to stop blaming each other so you can work through problems addressing power struggles.
  • The freeing process of taking responsibility.
  • Recognizing the ’cause & effect’ patterns in your relationship.
  • Finding healthy ways to communicate and relate to each other.
  • Getting through the difficult phase when daily stressors interfere with romance and connection.
  • Reconnecting to love and passion in the relationship.

I view couples therapy as interactive, reflective and involved.

A commitment to the work creates the ground that helps your relationship to start moving towards a place of stronger and more meaningful connection.
