A more realistic approach to self development. Look your life circumstances one-to-one (or in group workshops) and working to create real change and connect you to elements which may make your life more fulfilling. Private sessions in English, by a trained counsellor in the Vaud and Geneva areas - Nyon.
It is very common in the life of a relationship to reach a phase where it seems impossible to move forward. At this point it can be critical to address impasses with your partner and take a look at what is happening between you on a deeper level in order to keep the relationship evolving. Learning good communication skills is essential but is often insufficient to get a relationship to fulfil its potential. I take an in-depth approach that addresses the relational dynamics between you, in order to cultivate a more respectful, supportive and rewarding way of relating.
My approach is informed by systemic family dynamics and draws upon the excellent contributions made to the field by IMAGO therapy, H. Hendrix and Dr.J. Gottman. I assess each couple and their needs individually and draw upon different approaches to be able to make a tailor-made therapy that is based upon your relationship’s unique needs. I understand that it can feel like a big step coming to talk about your relationship and often one partner is willing and the other is resistant. I have been married now for 21 years and aim to create a professional, confidential, non-judgemental and safe environment where:·
You will both be given the time to express yourself and take a look at the underlying issues
Your partner will begin to hear what you are saying and vice versa
You learn how look after yourself and to manage your emotions
You both learn relational and communication skills
You learn about your differences, needs and what is important to you both
You discover how to bring back intimacy and loving feelings
The overall aim of couples counselling is to help you do the following:
a deeper insight into the impact you may be having on your partner
how to communicate in a way that enables you to be better received and understood
on past experiences that may be influencing how you operate in the present
and resolve conflicts where possible
a deeper empathic understanding of your partner’s needs
more trust between the two of you
what could make your relationship more loving, respectful and deeply satisfying
As time is often difficult to find. I offer a day bespoke intensive for your couple. This entails a combination of individual and couples therapy sessions. As a couple you will then be given tools and professional feedback on your relationship and how to upgrade it. By request….
