Counselling for Couples

It might be that you feel unheard or unappreciated, or you may have lost the fun and intimacy in your relationship.

Whether you’re a straight couple, same sex couple or throuple, it’s fantastic for me to work with you. I can show you a different way to communicate, creating a sense of safety and connection in which to explore the way you feel about each other and yourselves.

Couples Therapy

Imago Relationship Therapy is the model of therapy I use. It was created by Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly-Hunt in the 80s, and was made famous by Oprah Winfrey and Alanis Morrisette, both of whom used it for their own relationships.

The whole basis for the therapy is positive conscious listening, and when you start to dialogue in the Imago way, the impact on your relationships is very exciting.

Most people want to feel understood and appreciated. When you choose your partner/s it’s because you’re attracted to the way they approach life and sometimes life can take us in different directions, causing conflict. Sometimes our own defences seem to block our partner/s from being able to reach us.

Let’s work together and I will hold the space, and show you how to lower the barriers to the relationship you want.

Frequently asked questions

Louise offers both face to face or online with Zoom.

An individual session with Louise is 1 hour.

(Some therapists offer 50 minutes, which is referred to as the therapeutic hour.)

Imago Couples sessions are 1.5 hours.

You never have to talk about anything, it is completely your choice what you talk about. Louise aims to create an environment where you feel you can be yourself and know you will be heard and not judged.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a model of talking therapy and is one of many. Louise uses some CBT techniques. She is an integrative therapist who uses a few different models depending on what you, the client, needs.

It depends on what you are looking for from the therapy and how much the issues are affecting your life. Louise usually recommends weekly sessions for the first few if you are able to. It is your decision how often you attend. Louise believes therapy works best for you if you attend regularly, whether that is weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.

People often ask how long it takes for them to feel better or make changes. The honest answer is that everybody is different and that timing is key. You may come for the long term or you may need short term support – and decide to come back at a later time or not.

A therapist is not there to diagnose. I will work in collaboration with your GP and suggest that you talk with them if medication could help you alongside therapy. I may also talk to you about signposting you to a specialist in a particular field. Everything discussed between us before any decisions are made.

An individual session is £65 for the hour

Imago Couples sessions are £95 for the 1st hour session and then £150 for 1.5 hours usually bi-weekly

Louise asks for 48 hours notice to cancel a session. You will be charged the full fee without the notice for a missed session.
