Couples work

seedling2-4These meetings offer couples the time and space to communicate freely and safely in the presence of a witness; having a mediator helps focus the conversation on what really matters.

Each person will have the opportunity to express themselves fully and be listened to respectfully.

By identifying the strengths and differences in the relationship, couples are able to remember and recover their union, rediscover their autonomy as individuals and negotiate aspects of their interaction that have caused conflict and distance.

I ask to see each person for an individual session before coming together for the first couple conversation. These 90-minute meetings are fortnightly and we agree to meet for four sessions, followed by an evaluation where we decide on how to proceed.

I want to love you without clutching, appreciate you without judging, join you without invading, invite you without demanding, leave you without guilt, criticize you without blaming, and help you without insulting. If I can have the same from you, then we can truly meet and enrich each other.
