Respectful, confidential, professional relationship
counselling and therapy for couples
And other important relationships such as friends, relatives, children, colleagues.

Relationships can be the most wonderful
and the most difficult parts of our lives.

They can liberate us and they can hold us captive.

They can make our hearts sing with joy or scream with pain.

Relationships are complex, intricate, challenging. Most of us have not been taught the skills needed to navigate intimate relationships. Instead we get stuck in limiting, painful or destructive patterns in relationships.

We become bored, frustrated, sad, unfulfilled, lost,
angry, hurt, confused, avoidant, blaming.

We can fall in love, and we can fall out of love.

Couples can experience sexual and/or intimacy difficulties.

One or both people in a couple may have had an affair.

 

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT:

“What happened to our friendship, love, passion, intimacy or dreams?”

“We don’t communicate anymore.”

“We have lots of difficulties about power, control and trust.”

“We fight all the time.”

“All the good feelings have gone.”

“How do we balance our needs for togetherness and independence?”

 

Relationship counselling can explore, address and help resolve these issues
and many of the other struggles and difficulties that occur in relationships.

Shannon draws on the therapeutic models of Bowen Systems Therapy, Process Oriented Psychology, Jungian Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, NLP, Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, as well as Attachment Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, Differentiation Theory and Communication Theory to provide a dynamic, holistic and integrated approach to relationship counselling and therapy.

This produces an approach that is multi-responsive to the conscious and unconscious patterns and processes that people struggle with in their relationships.

This approach provides people with a dynamic, insightful, and practical way to understand, unravel and resolve their relationship problems and difficulties.

It also provides people with some very practical skills for understanding and resolving conflict, communication skills for expressing thoughts, feelings and needs more clearly and skills for self-reflection, self-awareness and self-growth.
