"The first duty of love is to listen"
I have been providing therapy for couples for 15 years in a range of settings:
- NHS Primary Care Team
- Private Practice
- Voluntary sector.
Many forms of couple therapy focus on the communication between couples and how to improve this. Often this is very helpful and resolves the difficulties the couple are experiencing with one another.
However for some couples this is not sufficient. These couples tend to report that as their relationship has broken down because they have felt deeply wounded by their partner's behaviour. This may result in a breakdown of trust in the relationship and feelings of anger, sadness and even despair.
I offer Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (Johnson and Greenberg), which uses the theories of attachment (Bowlby) to attend to the emotional wounding that each partner has suffered in the relationship. Each partner can then begin to heal, learn to trust their partner again and rebuild their relationship.
