Sessions for Individuals

When one person wants to explore relationship difficulties and the other person doesn’t, individual counselling sessions can help.  

Taking time to review a relationship in this way can allow us to take stock. It gives an opportunity to explore patterns that are making it hard to sustain a relationship. This can lead to new ideas on how to make helpful change.

My aim is to work with you to explore your current situation and develop new understandings.
Refreshing our communication skills can also make a real difference and help regain the relationship you desire.

I find that one person making a small change can lead to a breakthrough. This can  have a beneficial impact on the whole relationship.

Client Feedback

“The sessions really helped give me clarity in my thinking about what to do about my relationship.”

“I found the sessions really useful, with the relaxed atmosphere and interactive discussion, i.e. not just me talking.”


What to Expect

In the first session we will explore your situation. I will explain my approach and suggest a way forward. I will also take the time to answer any questions you have.

Sessions last an hour and are available Monday through Friday with daytime and evening options.


Session Location

I am a fully qualified, Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work in my own private practice in North Hampshire.

Sessions take place at my peaceful home office in Rotherwick, a short drive from Hook, Basingstoke and Fleet.


Nature of Relationships

Relationships are often a core and desired part of our lives. They help define us and at their best can provide us with joy and satisfaction.

When we become unsettled in a relationship or find it hard to build relationships it can affect us deeply.
Sometimes our most precious connections do falter, leaving us feeling sad, confused and unsure of ourselves.
 
A relationship can gain a great deal from nurturing. I believe they benefit from work to sustain them over the longer term.


Relationship Quotations

"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves."  - Carl Jung

“When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.”  - Catherine Ponder

“Every relationship needs an argument every now and then. Just to prove that it is strong enough to survive. Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys.”  - Melchor Lim

“A beautiful relationship does not depend on how well we understand someone. But, It depends on how well we avoid misunderstanding.” - Unknown

“Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.” – Anthony Robbins
