Couples Counselling


Couples counselling offers a safe, confidential space to explore relationship issues and difficulties. It gives an opportunity to reflect on, and understand the dynamics within your relationship with the input of an experienced professional, and to practice new skills and ways of relating.

Couples usually seek counselling when they have exhausted their own resources to deal with an issue or difficulty and are looking for help. Others come when there isn't a particular problem but because they want to lay solid foundations for the future, enhance their relationship in some way, or simply to have a supportive, safe space in which to think and talk about their relationship.

Issues focused on can include:

  • Communication
  • Conflict
  • Intimacy and sex
  • Negotiating around sex, money, time or needs
  • Exploring and negotiatiing expectations
  • Cheating and betrayal, understanding what happened and moving forward
  • Change in life circumstances eg having a child, redundancy, illness
  • Change in the stage of the relationship eg moving from the honeymoon phase, making a
    commitment or moving into later life
  • Separation

    Avril works with couples both on a short term (6-12 sessions) and an ongoing basis depending on the issue and situation.

    In many circumstances 6-12 sessions is enough time to identify, and work with a particular issue. Sometimes she might suggest working together for a little longer, or that a couple could return for a few more sessions later, if necessary.

    Sessions are either weekly or fortnightly.

    If you would like more information, to discuss with Avril what you are looking for and whether couples counselling might work for you, or to make an appointment, please feel free to call or email her.
