Romantic Couple

Couples Therapy.   Couples therapy is not, for a therapist, a simple transition from working with one person to two (or more than two in a polyamorous relationship). Although the skills used are similar, the dynamics are quite different and more complex. To be competent and successful in this important type of therapy, counsellors need to expand their skills through considering new approaches, attending workshops, extensive CPD and practicing with the support of an experienced supervisor. Paul has done this and has been counselling couples for over five years.

Paul welcomes, not only heterosexual couples, but couples of all genders, and is LGBTIQ+ aware and sensitive. He also welcomes those in polyamorous relationships.

Couples seek counselling for numerous reasons, but predominantly because they feel their relationship has become unhappy or is breaking down. There may be many reasons why this is happening including communication issues, financial problems, infidelity, lack of intimacy, mis-trust and unreasonable demands.  There are very many more.

Couples attend counselling to save their relationship or to make it better. Paul will do his best to help the couple achieve this. He will treat all persons in the relationship equally and non-judgementally. He is realistic in his belief that not all relationships can be saved, and in such cases, will work tirelessly to help each person find their own way of moving forward most productively.
