Individual, couples and family counselling West London
You want to be more present, authentic and connected in your relationships.
We are who we are in relation to others and our relationships strike to the core of what we learned along the way about what to expect from the people we share our lives with and how we react when these expectations are somehow not met. The truth is that relationships can often trigger surprising and painful feelings. This is true for romantic relationships as well as relationships with our kids, our parents, our siblings, our friends, or our colleagues. This is especially true for those of us who had challenging family relationships in childhood.
Healing relationships from the inside out…
- Worrying that you’re messing up your relationship?
- Feeling that you’re just not enough?
- Feeling that you’ve had the same argument time and time again?
How we communicate in relationships is key to being heard and understood. Changing how we communicate is more than learning a new skill. It is about being able to listen without our inner voice deafening us and being able to share without being overwhelmed by our own vulnerabilities.
I will help you take control of how you show up in your relationships by exploring the root issues, which are triggering your painful feelings.
Focusing on the present
It is a common misconception that counselling involves dwelling on the past.
In fact good relationship support focuses on the present and on recognising unhelpful behaviour patterns, which cause communication breakdown in relationships.
Some of these behavioural patterns may well be rooted in the past but my experience with clients shows me that the shift lies in the present.
