The causes of psychological distress are never only within the individual. Every difficulty is relational. Problems generally occur as a result of complex dynamics within our relationship(s); with ourselves and our environment - family, friends, college, workplace, and so on. Through a gentle but rigorous process, my role is to help you explore your situation in order to make fully informed life choices. I do not diagnose or pathologise any feelings or behaviours. You can expect to be treated with respect at all times.
All problems within relationships are co-created. Finding fault, blaming and shaming doesn't help. My role is to facilitate a process where you can make sense of the complex dynamics for yourselves, as a couple or family. I encourage you to take responsibility for understanding and expressing your own needs in an atmosphere of collaborative and respectful exploration.
