Relationship Coaching

Relationship Coaching & Therapy

Relationship Coaching is available for couples and BDSM / LGBT non specific relationships.

What is relationship coaching or therapy

The service is integrative and multi modal, as is all our provision. What this really means is that although evidence based, it is designed around the person or persons involved.

What influences

Psychodynamic (one of the most important psychology principles), cognitive behavioural (for change), philosophical (LGBT , BDSM, spiritual, etc), linguistic (communications), analytic (mindful analytic, psychoanalytic and SSADM).

What happens

I listen, I analyse, I reflect, I engage the couple and all parts, I use the varied information from different sources and I try to help the people involved to make considered decisions.  Schmidt & Gelhert (2017), Nasershariati (2022) and Halchuk et al (2010) all showed positive outcomes from different forms of couples therapy.
