Relationships can all struggle from time to time, from frequent bickering, to losing the 'spark' in your relationship.  We can also face other conflicts, for example:


  • Within the family structure

  • Parenting differences

  • Whether one partner or both have had an affair

  • Trust has been broken or a betrayal

  • Jealousy

  • Different goals or values

  • Financial issues

  • Communication has become difficult

  • Something definitely feels wrong, but you're not sure what or why

  • There is something you want your partner to know, but you've been unable to tell them

  • You have gone through something devastating that is changing the way you connect with each other

  • Emotional or physical intimacy is gone or deeply diminished

  • You feel stuck in bad patterns

Unfortunately, I cannot help in relationships where there is domestic violence or physical aggression within my practice.

You can contact me to find out whether Couples Therapy may be helpful for you or to book an initial assessment where we can explore your concerns in more detail and see how I can help.

How could Couples Therapy help?

In our first session, we will explore the reasons you came to therapy and identify the goals you want as individuals and as a couple.


Couples Therapy is not here to blame either party but to explore the reasons why the problems have come about and how to help to overcome these as a couple.  There is also sometimes an element of individual therapy within Couples Therapy if we identify that this would be helpful for both or either party.

During therapy, you and your partner may find a way of overcoming your problems or decide it’s time to part ways.  It is through the exploration within the safe space that counselling provides, that you will decide what the future holds for you both.

Should we come to Couples Counselling?

When you come to couples counselling is up to you both as a couple, sometimes couples counselling is seen as the 'last resort' to save a relationship, however coming to counselling early can help before it gets that bad, as a way to keep your relationships healthy and address any issues before they become 'stuck'. So if you're in Newcastle and feel couples therapy might help you, please get in touch to arrange an assessment.
