Our Counselling Services
We work with individuals from a strengths based perspective, helping you to find new ways of discovering your best self.
We have been there through the ups and downs of navigating the complexities of marriage, raising children and step children and working through the more challenging and rewarding times!
We can help couples to re-discover the intimacy that can go missing at certain times, and to re-connect despite the issues that have created conflict.
If your relationship is struggling, I can help you both to view it in a different way, and to learn new skills to re-connect and recover the intimacy that can sometimes go missing in all relationships.
All relationships experience conflict from time to time and this may lead to disconnection and distance. Despite these difficulties, it is possible to learn new ways to relate to your partner and to develop a deeper connection.
Workshops for Couples
Strength Zone Holistic
What are Intensive Sessions?
Couples intensives can be a stand alone experience or as a part of your ongoing therapy.
We work one on one with you over 1, 2 or 3 days.
Richard and Jane act as co-therapists for all intensive therapy sessions. This means you will have access to two therapists for the duration of the intensive session.
Who should attend an intensive?
- New relationships wanting to have tools to build a solid foundation
- Engaged couples wanting to create a relationship vision
- Couples who want to address areas of conflict that keep showing up
- Couples wanting to reconnect
- Couples experiencing a crisis in their relationship
When would an intensive not be appropriate?
Before an intensive takes place we have an intake session of 60 minutes to explore your goals and suitability for an intensive session. We will work together to outline a plan for the intensive session.
Where do intensives take place?
We also offer online intensives for those who can’t be in person.
Frequently Asked Questions
Strength Zone Holistic
Why should I see a therapist?
We always suggest a free 15 min consult call to discuss your needs and how we can support.
How long will therapy take?
With couples, we tend to suggest at least several months of therapy to build and learn new ways of connection and understanding.
We will always discuss with you at our initial session what your goals are and base our sessions around what works for you!
What does a counselling session look like?
In our initial session, we will discuss what brought you to therapy, what is worked in the past and what hasn’t. We will get a history from you around the issue, as well and a holistic understanding of your background.
We will always give you the opportunity to ask questions and tell us what is most important to you around your goals.
From there, we will work with you around a plan moving forward, always guided by your unique needs and individual strengths.
How do you work with couples?
Often in our relationships we experience conflict. Not feeling heard, understood or appreciated. We move from a romantic phase, where our partners meet all of our needs to a stage of conflict and disconnection. We often relate to each other when we are experiencing struggles through adaptive behaviors that we learned or experienced in childhood. Meaning, we do what we have learned and we do it unconsciously.
We are here to help you understand the struggles that ALL couples experience and bring those ways of reacting and responding to our partners into a more conscious place.
Conflict in relationship is normal and it is connection and growth trying to happen!!!!
We work with couples in their identified areas of disconnect and help them to learn to communication and truly understand each other. We do this through a specific focus and teaching couples how to dialogue with one another that brings about increased connection, understanding and intentionality.
