In the therapists own words:
I have a special interest in working with couples, especially facilitating greater communication and understanding using the arts and storytelling.
I offer three forms of couples therapy (open to couples of any orientation):
1) Conventional ongoing sessions focussed on the specific difficulty or desire brought by the couple. This is recommended where conflict or serious difficulties have emerged and the couple needs in-depth therapeutic support to resolve their issues.
2) Arts-based workshops designed to explore and facilitate communication around a specific area of interest or difficulty brought by the couple. This could range from exploring feelings around fertility and growing a family to discovering/re-discovering one another's language of love and sensuality. If you are interested in workshops of this sort (typicaly 8-12 sessions with possible extension) please email me to enquire further about your specific area of interest or make an appointment to discuss your needs. All workshops of this genre are tailored to the needs and interests of the couple.
3) Pre-Marriage and Pre-Family-Building workshops. These workshops typically consist of 12 sessions or four half day weekends dedicated to exploring the likely changes and implications facing a couple when embarking on marriage or growing a family. I assist couples to think about what their hopes and fears around these life transitions are (often each person sees them quite differently) and to build a joint narrative or vision as well as to adapt and attend to each others needs.
