Couples Counselling

Whether you are facing minor or major challenges, couples counselling can help you re-establish trust, improve communication, deepen intimacy, and work through conflict in a positive and effective manner.

 Are you and your partner struggling to communicate effectively and connect emotionally?

Don't give up on your relationship just yet! Couples counselling can provide you with the tools and guidance you need to rebuild trust, deepen intimacy, and find your way back to a loving and fulfilling partnership. T

Here are some ways that couples counselling can help you:

  • Improved Communication: One of the primary benefits of couples counselling is improved communication between partners. Couples often struggle to communicate effectively, which can lead to misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and unresolved issues. In counselling, couples learn how to communicate in a more open and effective way, which can help them better understand each other and resolve conflicts.
  • Increased Understanding: Couples counselling can help couples gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their partner. Through therapy, couples can explore their emotions, thoughts, and behaviour's in a safe and non-judgmental environment. This increased understanding can lead to greater empathy and compassion for each other, which can help strengthen the relationship.
  • Conflict Resolution: Couples counselling can help couples learn how to resolve conflicts in a healthy and constructive way. By learning effective conflict resolution skills, couples can prevent small issues from turning into major problems and improve the overall quality of their relationship.
  • Improved Intimacy: Intimacy is an important part of any relationship, and couples counselling can help couples improve their intimacy and sexual relationship. By addressing any underlying issues that may be impacting their physical relationship, couples can improve their overall emotional and physical connection.
  • Strengthened Relationship: Ultimately, couples counselling can help strengthen the relationship between partners. By addressing issues, improving communication, and learning new skills, couples can build a stronger, healthier, and more fulfilling relationship.

What Clients Say

Genuine and empathic

I needed help after discovering some devastating personal news. I didn't know how to deal with the revelations and Julie helped me to learn to process the very sensitive details for myself whilst offering support and reasoning of what I am experiencing in a very genuine and empathic way.

Debra Scarff

Didn't rush me, let me go at my pace

Worked with Julie for a few months, to deal with childhood trauma amongst other things that I felt were holding me back on life. After nearly 50 years thought it was about time I dealt with it. Julie is goatskin understanding. Didn't rush me, let me go at my pace and gave tools to deal with things.


Calm and supportive style

I met Julie online and love being part of her supportive community. I have benefited tremendously from her love and support. I highly recommend Julie as a coach. Her calm, informative and supportive style as well as her willingness to go the extra mile is just awesome.
