Kaye Barney

Professional Online Counsellor

Marriage Counselling Online

 

Hello, my name is Kaye Barney and I’m a fully qualified ‘Relate’ and ‘Tavistock’ trained individual and couples’ therapist. I hold a Psychology degree and a foundation degree in Relationship Counselling.

Relationship Counselling is my second career. It builds upon many years of experience working in commercial organisations, understanding human motivations and behaviour. Over the years I’ve also gathered a wide variety of life skills and experiences. I now help couples and individuals succesfully resolve their relationship problems.

About you

Do you feel unhappy in your relationship? Perhaps your relationship is stuck in a rut or you’ve grown apart? Maybe you’ve lost the spark that brought you together or keep going around and around with the same old arguments. Alternatively, you might be struggling to communicate at all.

Resentment might be simmering under the surface or there are fireworks every time you share what’s on your mind. Perhaps one of you has had an affair, leaving the other feeling betrayed. Or one of you feels invaded because your partner is too clingy.

Maybe you’re unsure whether you want to stay or leave a relationship.  You might know what you want, but don’t know how to do it. Or think what you want is different to what your partner wants.

Perhaps you want counselling on your own, or couples counselling with your partner.  Whatever your reasons might be for seeking relationship counselling online, I can help you find a way forward.

About marriage counselling online

Asking for help signifies the realisation that whatever your situation is, it won’t get better without something changing.

Making the decision to start relationship therapy can feel like a huge step. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about it for a while, or you have maybe been putting it off, in the hope that things will improve. Maybe you’re reluctant to talk about deeply personal issues with a stranger. Or nervous about what you might discover about yourself or your partner. Perhaps you’ve tried counselling before and felt it didn’t work or you didn’t ‘click’ with the counsellor.

Whatever your fears, I’ll help you feel at ease with my warm, friendly, non-judgemental approach. I’ll give you time to talk about your problems in confidence and at your own pace. I’ll help you find ways of coping. And if you come with your partner, rest assured that I’ll give you both space to be heard.

I will help you:-

  • Explore what happens with repetitive thoughts.
  • Unpick the arguments that go round and round.
  • Work out where these patterns come from.
  • Voice your expectations, hopes and fears.
  • Understand how you communicate and try new ways of talking.
  • Identify what to change and learn how to accept or tolerate what you can’t.
  • Consider a way forward by brainstorming options.

Ethical Standards

I have a BACP Certificate of Proficiency, demonstrating that I have the relevant, up to date skills to be a practising counsellor. As a registered BACP member, I work within their Ethical Framework. I am fully insured, DBS certified, and take part in ongoing supervision and professional development.

Maryam Keshavarz

Professional Online Counsellor

Marriage Counselling Online

 

Hello, my name is Maryam Keshavarz and I am a fully qualified, BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) accredited ‘Integral Psychotherapist’. Integrative therapy means I drawn upon a wide range of techniques and theories based on each individual couple’s needs.

I am also an accredited member of ‘The National Counselling Society (NCS) and a member of the Australia Counselling Association’ (ACA). I am currently working towards a Doctorate to become a Counselling Psychotherapist at the ‘New school of Counselling and Psychotherapy’ (NSPC).

How I can help

Do you experience conflict and difficulty as a couple? It is of course natural for every couple to argue from time to time. However, recurrent conflict, which is unresolved is unproductive and leaves couples experiencing significantly more distress than they need to.

Sometimes individuals/couples have an excessive avoidance of conflict, which can also be a problem in itself. Because this means any problems are left unsaid which in turn can lead to resentment on one or both sides.

I will help you to improve your relationship by helping you to respond to problems and difficulties in ways that bring you closer together, rather than drive you apart. Relationship counselling will also help you to clarify any uncertainty or ambivalence in your relationship, to heal wounds and to better function together as a couple.

As a couple counsellor, I will help you to identify any unhelpful patterns of behaviour, which might be contributing to the relationship issues. Then together, we can work on changes to achieve problem resolution. The relationship counselling process will help to re-establish your connection and bond to one another. Meaning your relationship will become a a source of support once more.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP code of ethics and the NCS ethical framework. In addition, I undertake regular professional development and supervision. Alongside holding professional indemnity insurance.

Sian Jones

Professional Online Counsellor

Marriage Counselling Online

 

My name is Sian Jones and I’m a fully qualified Relationship Counsellor and founder of ‘Online Couples Counselling’. I hold a BSc (hons) Psychology and have a proven track record in helping hundreds of couples successfully achieve their goals. I also hold a diploma in ‘Psychotherapy’ and ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapy’ (CBT) which is helpful during my work with couples through understand negative thought patterns.

My career in relationship counselling began over 10 years ago with the opening of our parent company ‘Relationship Counselling Kent’. This is still a successful couple counselling business, based in Kent. Therefore, due to it’s sucess I took the decision to ensure relationship counselling was more widely avaialable to couples across the UK, hence the introduction of ‘Online Couples Counselling’.

How marriage counselling online can help

Professional relationship counselling is highly effective, because an unbiased, third party can help give you both clarity and understanding. When your relationship has run into difficulties, emotions become heightened and it can be difficult to see the wood from the trees. As a result, you might struggle to identify the part you have played individually (often unwittingly) which has contributed to the problems. Therefore, the tendency is to blame your partner.

I take a common sense, step by step approach to online marriage counselling. I will encourage you to work through your problems together by asking relevant questions. This means you will both have the opportunity to open up and explain what isn’t working for you and why. In turn, this allows your partner the opportunity to really listen and try and understand your perspective.

It’s not necessarily about agreeing or even liking each others perspectives, it’s just about understanding them. Neither is it about attributing blame to either of you, it’s about gaining a proper understanding of how the other person feels and why. Because, in my experience, when an ‘understanding’ is reached, it goes a long way in removing any hurt, resentment or anger that may have built up over the years. Therefore, allowing you to move forward more postively, in whichever way you choose.

The feedback I receive is that I have an exceptional ability to make couples feel quickly at ease. Because, I am aware that when people feel more comfortable, they find it easier to open-up and communicate more effectively.

Rest assured, I won’t sit there silently waiting for you to speak. I will take an active part in the conversation and the process of recovery and change. Read my reviews

Ethical standards

My work is diverse and I have vast experience in working with mixed cultures, same gender relationships, families and friendships. I provide a non-judgemental safe, confidential environment where we can work through your relationship challenges together.

I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. Along with undertaking regular professional development and supervision and have ongoing professional indemnity insurance.

Tim Gilbert

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Marriage Counselling

 

Hello there. My name is Tim Gilbert and I am a couples, individual and family counsellor at Online Couples Counselling. I  have over 8 years experience and hold a Diploma in Relationship Counselling and a BSc (Hons) in Psychology. I’m also BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered.

Problems in relationships can be caused by a variety of different reasons. Therefore, in order for you to get the most out of the therapy, I will use an ‘integrative approach’. This will be from either a Systemic or Psychodynamic perspective. This means, I will explore what is happening ‘now’ in the couple relationship and develop an understanding of how our upbringing and past experiences define our relationships.

As individuals we are affected by our internal makeup and by external influences. For example, our upbringing, social experiences and how these affect our emotions, feelings and beliefs. Therefore, approaches to therapy are influenced by these two models in terms of what has happened in the past and what is going on in the present to yourself and as a couple.

My approach to relationship therapy

I understand that taking the decision to book marriage therapy might feel quite daunting. So, with this in mind, my approach is both empathetic and supportive. I will help you quickly feel at ease, listened to and most importantly understood. During the relationship counselling process, we will explore the problems at hand in order to develop a holistic and comprehensive understanding of your unique situation.

Relationship counselling usually employs a process of change. Therefore, it’s important that you both feel valued and respected whilst working through what that change may look like in your scenario. I will encourage you to determine your desired outcome. Then, through the building of bridges, help you develop positive communication paths so you are able to move forward. This process will not only improve self- esteem, it will also allow respective voices to be heard.

Perhaps you are worried that there is a possibility of separation or maybe there are disputes within the family unit. My easy-going approach will enable you to be heard and empowered in order to reach a more positive resolution going forward.

My experience

During our work together at I will help you gain a better understanding of each other’s perspectives. This will be achieved through a calm, non-accusatory, therapeutic process. A process where you will both have a voice and be able to work through your relationship issues together for a sustainable outcome.

I work diversely and have experience working with same gender relationships. mixed cultures, families and friendships.

Ethical standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP code of ethics and ethical framework. I undertake regular professional development to maintain a high level of knowledge and practice and regular supervision. My professional indemnity insurance is up to date.

My name is Allie Markantonis and I’m fully qualified integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor based at Online Couples Counselling.  I’m also an accredited member of the NCS (National Counselling Society) providing relationship counselling for both couples and individuals.

All relationships go through difficult times. Sometimes couples get stuck in recurring patterns. Consequently leading to recurring arguments or an avoidance of communication. As a result, the problems bubble away under the surface in silence and both parties feel disconnected, unhappy or lonely.

How I can help

It can be easy to find a counsellor but more difficult knowing you have found the right one for you. I consider myself down-to-earth and easy to relate to while providing a confidential, calm and supportive space to help you feel at ease. As a result, you will both feel safe enough to be able explore the issues in your relationship.

During my online marriage counselling, I won’t take sides, judge or offer ready-made solutions for your particular situation. In contrast, I work with you in a solution focused way.

You will have the opportunity to:-

Address negative and ‘stuck’ patterns in your relationship

Learn more about your own and your partner’s inner world and emotional needs

Talk openly and honestly with each other, in a way you may not have done for some time

Develop deeper understanding, connection and safety in the relationship

I fully understand that the time and investment you are making into couple counselling should be of maximum benefit. Therefore, my priority is to help you make the required changes as quickly as possible so you are able to move forward more positively.

Change doesn’t have to be a long process and it doesn’t have to involve lots of sadness and hurt.  Change begins the moment you both decide you want things to be different.

Irena Campbell

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Relationship Counselling

 

Hello, my name is Irena Campbell (usually known as Rainey) and I am a CPCAB (Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) qualified ‘Integrative Counsellor’ for both couples and individuals. Being an Integrative Therapist means; I am flexible in my approach to ensure the desired outcome is achieved for every couple I see.

I understand that seeking help with your relationship might feel quite daunting. However, I am confident that my warm and relaxed manner will help you both feel at ease very quickly. Whether you are choosing to stay together but would like some help in getting your relationship to a better place. Or whether you would like help in separating amicably. My couple counselling will help you both navigate and negotiate towards a brighter future.

My approach to couple counselling online

The first question I will ask is  ‘what do you hope to get out of the therapy?’ I will then offer you a safe environment in order to promote the required changes so you are able to achieve your goal. Sometimes, couples are unsure about what they want. That’s okay, we will work together to find that out. I will then help the transition and move you forward more positively. I am passionate about what I do and committed to working with you in an empathic, non-judgmental, professional way.

Online relationship counselling will offer you both the opportunity to understand why your relationship might have run into difficulties. As a relationship therapist, I will help you recognise the reasons behind why you are seeking relationship therapy. Then together, we will explore why you might be feeling worn out or overwhelmed in the relationship.

I will gently encourage you both be really honest with each other about how you truly feel and why. I will also identify when you both need alone time.

My work is diverse and have experience working with mixed cultures, same gender relationships and friendships. Any relationship can cause stress and conflict. However, with the right help and support these issues can be resolved.

The benefits of online couple counselling

Couples often seek relationship counselling because of a breakdown in communication, which can happen gradually over a number of years. Because of this breakdown resentment tends to build on one or both sides. Through couple counselling you will learn to understand your own unique way of communicating and also your partners.

It is all too common for couples to ‘talk’ but not tell their partner what they are truly feeling – and expect them to mind read. But when their partner doesn’t or can’t, it can lead to hurt, disappointment or anger. This expectation can cause huge problems in a relationship.

Couple counselling will give you both the opportunity to be ‘heard’ and also hear what your partner is saying, without interruption. By listening and taking turns to speak, it will allow you the time to explore the dynamics in your relationship. It is not about attributing blame. It’s about gaining understanding of the role you both play and then taking responsibility for your part in the relationship that is contributing to it not working as well as you both would like.

Ethical standards

I subscribe to work within the BACP ethical framework. Have regular supervision and undertake regular professional development.

Trish Mayne

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Relationship Therapy

 

Hello, my name is Trish Mayne and I am a fully qualified ‘Relate’ trained couple counsellor, offering online relationship therapy for both couples and individuals.

For as long as I can remember I have had an interest in the way people communicate. Relationships are based around communication, whether that is with your partner, parents, children, colleagues and friends.

Our interaction with others can bring great joy and fulfilment. However, there are times when we all struggle with relationships. We change, others change and circumstances change. You and those around you can be left feeling confused and unhappy.

Maybe there is a relationship crisis in your life. It could be that your relationship is feeling unfulfilled. You may be unsure about the future together. You may want to prepare your relationship for a big life event you know is coming, such as becoming a parent or marriage.  It can be very difficult to find a place where you feel as if someone is really listening to you. This is where I, as a Relationship counsellor, can help.

My background

I began my career as a nurse within the NHS. This gave me the foundation to communicate with people of all ages when they were at their most vulnerable and needed support. I am also a qualified midwife and health visitor so I understand the physical and emotional changes that occurred when a couple were starting out as parents.

Personal expectations are challenged when a child comes into the family, and sometimes things are not as you were expecting them to be.  I have been privileged to gain the trust of many people I have worked with. Many feel better knowing they don’t have to be perfect.  It has been fulfilling to help people increase their self-belief and confidence.

I spent many years working with young parents, helping them to understand healthy relationships and have fulfilling attachments with their baby/ children.  I have used my knowledge of child development and psychology along the way.

My work with Relate over a number of years has been both face to face and online. I have worked with couples seeking help for relational problems such as: Wider family conflict; intimacy issues; infidelity or affairs; the loss of romance or excitement; mental and physical ill health affecting the relationship – to name but a few.

I also have counselling work experience with couples where one partner has recently been released from prison, successfully helping them to re-establish their relationship with their partner and children.

I strongly believe that listening is the key to understanding and I feel my varied work expertise brings a rounded understanding of people of all ages, all walks of life and in all sorts of situations.

Online relationship therapy

I will give you respect understanding, empathy and support. Whether you come as a couple or an individual. I will bring a warm, relaxed approach which will put you at ease and I aim to give you a feeling of being in control during our work together.

Sometimes we lose the skill of listening and understanding to what our partner is saying. I will give you space to explore your thoughts and feelings and think about how this affects your relationship.  You will need a space where there is equal time to think and speak.

My approach to your individual situation will be neutral and without judgement.  Along the way, I may challenge you if appropriate, or offer the odd suggestion. I won’t attempt to ‘fix ‘your relationship or tell you want you should or shouldn’t be thinking or feeling. Instead, I will sit with you while you are trying to make sense of your experience.

I hope that you will end your counselling with me feeling you have more control and understanding of your relationship.

Ethical standards

I subscribe and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework and undertake regular professional development and clinical supervision. I also have up to date professional indemnity insurance.

Couple Counselling Online

 

Hello, my name is Denese MacDonald and I am a certified Relationship Counsellor of ’Imago Therapy, with over 20 years’ experience. I am BACP registered, which means I am qualified to work with both individuals and couples. Although relationship counselling is my main area of expertise.

Imago Therapy is a process designed to assist couples in overcoming a distanced hurting relationship in order to find love again. Whilst I am a practitioner of Imago Therapy I am essentially an ‘integrative therapist’. That’s’ because I don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach, So I use different therapeutic models, depending on each couples’ individual needs.

How I can help your relationship

Perhaps you are tired of recycling the same conflicts which result in you feeling misunderstood, hurt or angry? Or maybe you feel so unhappy in your relationship that you are wondering if you should stay or leave?

Often, when couples are experiencing a lot of pain and frustration in their relationship, they feel disconnected and defensive. I shall assist you in creating a positive change in the way you communicate. So instead of being defensive and acting out your hurt with destructive behaviours. I will help you both calmly express your pain or dissatisfactions and explore them in more detail. We will discuss what you would like to change and tailor the counselling to meet your goals.

Undertaking  couple counselling online, in a safe non-judgemental space will allow listening and understanding instead of escalation and conflict. Relationship counselling can help expand awareness and develop the skills needed to repair and grow your relationship to its full potential.

If change is not possible and recovery is not your goal. Then online couple counselling can support you to talk this out, with kindness and mutual respect; so, you can move forward more positively in separate lives.

Marriage counselling is a positive action to navigate your way through your relationship difficulties. Being accurately’heard’ by our partner is the start of healing and growth.

Ethical Practice

Being a BACP member means that my practice is informed by their code of ethics. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

My experience

I have been practicing for over 15 years both privately and within independent and charitable organisations. These include, independent healthcare, cancer services and children and young people’s services. Within my own private practice, I work with individuals and couples in both long- and short-term therapy.

During my work I have helped couples deal with the impact on their relationship of long-term illness, growing apart, sexual concerns and addictions. As well as helping manage change in a more effective, productive way.

About relationships

There can be many challenges to relationships in today’s busy world. Over a period of time relationships can change without us being aware of the drift.

The impact of the external world on our relationship can be huge… work issues, family responsibilities, not to mention a current global pandemic!

It can be difficult to negotiate changes in relationships when feelings are running high. Seeking help from a professional can be a great step to take to help you clarify things.

How I can help

My role during online couple counselling if to offer you both a space to make the required changes in your relationship. I will help you to communicate more effectively and reach your own conclusions about the way forward.

In the initial session I will ask you both what you would like to achieve out of the relationship therapy and where you would like to get to. Even if you both have different expectations, we will work with that. By working on how you communicate with each other is the first step to helping you achieve your goal.

As a therapist I am open, down to earth and warm. I aim to make both of you feel comfortable from the first time we meet, so that you feel free to bring any concerns to the session.

I am passionate in my work with couples and committed to working ethically and safely to overcoming the challenges that we are presented with.

I hold a certificate in ‘Counselling and Psychotherapy’ and a Diploma in ‘Psychosexual and Relationship therapy’. My training is accredited by Middlesex University in London and I’m a registered member of COSRT (College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists).

How relationship therapy online can help

I believe that everybody’s situation is unique. Whether you are in a couple or you are seeking therapy on your own. I will use the relevant tools and methods based on your individual needs. I will support you to overcome any issues and help you achieve the goals you have set. Whether that is to enrich your relationship or to find a way to separate as amicably as possible.

I will provide you with a safe, non-judgmental and warm space. We will work together, for as long as you need. With the security of knowing that everything we discuss is treated with the genuine respect and in confidence.

My aim it to build rapport as quickly as possible, so hopefully you find it easier to open up and disclose the intimate aspects of your life. I understand that you are the expert of your life whilst I am the facilitator to hold and support you whilst you explore and navigate your way through your challenges.

How I work

My approach is ‘integrative’. This means I use different approaches, theories and tools that suit each person or couples needs. I use the ‘Person-Centered Approach’ when I feel you need to lead the way, which provides you with empathetic, non-judgmental space with unconditional positive regard.

The use of ‘Attachment Theory’ is beneficial in helping to build a stronger bond between partners, by looking back at the impact of childhood on current relationships. I may incorporate ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapy’ (CBT) which helps individuals develop alternative ways of thinking and behaving that might be causing psychological distress. CBT helps to change negative thoughts or beliefs into more positive/rational ones.

Through the use of different communication tools and techniques I will help your find a way to communicate more effectively. Whilst ensuring you both feel heard and understood correctly.  I may also use some psychosexual exercises and methods, to support my work, for any areas of sexual dysfunction a couple might be experiencing.

Jo Walmsley-Moore

Professional Online Counsellor

Marriage Counselling Online

 

My name is Jo and I’m a fully qualified therapist and couple counsellor accredited by the NCS (National Counselling Society) at Online Couples Counselling.

I am a professionally trained ‘Integrative Counsellor’ which means I take combined approach to therapy. This means I bring together different elements of specific therapies. Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat everyone in all situations.

I have vast experience in couple counselling as well as being a clinical supervisor. I will provide support to rebuild, repair and re-bond you relationship. Or sometimes if required, I will help facilitate the end of a relationship as amicably as possible.

My background/experience

I’ve experienced a variety of issues during my time as a therapist, achieved through private practice, agency work along with five years working within the NHS IAPT (improved access to psychological therapies)

My extensive knowledge and understanding has highlighted the importance of effective communication within relationships. Alongside understanding the impact problems such as sexual desire or dysfunction, long term health conditions, domestic abuse, anxiety, depression or anger can have on relationships. I have seen and heard most things, so I’m not easily shocked or embarrassed, so there is nothing taboo..If you need to talk about it then I’m here to listen.

How I can help

At the core of any successful therapy is the relationship between counsellor and the individual. Therefore, I strive to build a trusting and empathic relationship with you.

At Online Couples Counselling I provide a safe, confidential space to talk through your issues together. Helping you to understand how you’re past events and experiences may be responsible for your current beliefs and behaviour.

We may not always be aware; but sometimes our beliefs become unhealthy or may even be incorrect, which can lead to unhealthy behaviours filtering into the relationship. We are all influenced by our early years and the people around us. Therefore, it can be helpful to understand our partner’s history as well as understanding our own.

By helping you to understand yourselves, alongside finding more healthy ways of communicating, you will be equipped with the tools to make the most of your future and find happiness once again in your relationship.

I will tailor my work to suit your individual situation. I am a trained life coach so may use these skills alongside the therapy to help you manage life, maximise your potential and achieve your goals.

About me

If you are considering sharing your thoughts and emotions with me, it feels right to share a little of myself with you.  I’m just a pretty “normal” kind of person with a sarcastic sense of humour and a few battle wounds of my own.

I also struggle with my own issues some days but I get through them with a smile and a few expletives! #counsellorwhoswears. I love to laugh and always try to find a positive in every situation. However, it hasn’t always been this way. I have also had difficult times in my life when I thought I would never laugh again but I came through them. My own experiences give me the passion to help you through your difficult times.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP and NCS code of ethics and ethical framework. Additionally, I undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

Elaine McKenzie

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Couple Therapy

 

Hello, my name is Elaine McKenzie and I am BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) accredited and a UKCP registered Psychotherapist and Couple Counsellor. I have more than 15 years’ experience working with children, adults and couples.

My background

My experience is wide ranging, working therapeutically with young people, adults, couples and families presenting all manner of ‘symptoms’ always informed by specific professional training for couples.

I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. Both of which, offer different evidence-based theories assisting in a creative, integrative approach. Such ‘tools’ gained from various theoretical models produce a ‘tailor made’ fit for each unique individual or couple. My approach enables me “go with whatever” emerges during a session.  I seek to empower individuals to build inner, emotional resilience and find their own solutions

An ethical requirement as a therapist is to undertake continual professional development. This is to increase my knowledge in specialist areas including addiction, personality disorders and PTSD. This deepens my understanding as well as maintaining up-to-date practice techniques.  An awareness of ‘Body Psychotherapy’ for example, has provided another therapeutic approach in order to comprehend ‘symptoms’. Some of these symptoms may be physical, some mental and others emotional; and they have become embodied.

The human condition is very much heightened during a time when society is experiencing extreme uncertainty – known as existential angst. Which is the essence of existence necessary for survival. However, it can become overwhelming when out of control.

Relationships

I understand that it can be difficult to admit to having problems within your relationship. It can also take great courage to do so. However, it’s at this point, that there can be a real ‘break through, rather than breakdown’.  It might feel like a big decision seeking professional help. However, in my experience, relationship problems don’t just go away because they are not spoken about. Instead, they fester, until potentially, the relationship falls apart. It’s where at this point of vulnerability lies the strength. Therefore, if both parties are willing, there is always a solution to be found.

Your choice of relationship therapist is of course very important. Therefore, the initial session is not only about you telling me what has brought you both to therapy and what you hope to achieve.  It is also your opportunity to consider whether you feel comfortable working with me and believe that I can support you in achieving your objectives.

If you both decide to go ahead with sessions we will work and think together, each committing to the therapeutic alliance and the exploration of your specific challenges.  My practice is to take a full history from each individual perspective, this offers insight into where and how.

How I work with couples

My aim as a couple’s counsellor is to facilitate a ‘space’ for you both to ‘listen to and hear the other person’. This will allow you both the time to think and reflect upon how and why any patterns of dysfunctional relating from the past; might be re-enacted in the present. This can create problems within the current relationship but it also offers an opportunity for change.

Online couple therapy can be open-ended or time-limited, depending on your individual situation.  I am experienced in working with issues such as infidelity, lack of intimacy or domestic violence; all of which are barriers to communicating effectively. Or perhaps you feel just generally ‘stuck’ with an inability to identify the problem in order to relate more harmoniously. Or alternatively, in some cases, help to separate amicably.

difficulties may have originated and developed plus acknowledging the impact upon your lives bringing to light what may need to change.

My style is to listen to empathetically, and without judgment, to what you both have to say. I will ensure that I have understood correctly what you are both verbalising.  The feeling of being ‘heard’ fosters confidence and validation through the building and maintaining of the therapeutic relationship.

The promoting of individual mindfulness and self-reflection within the ‘couple’ relationship means that self-awareness is promoted and change can be fostered. Therefore, leading to more healthy patterns of relating being achieved.  By seeking help for your relationship you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. This demands regular clinical supervision as mandatory to ensure good practice.  I also hold professional indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS check.

My name is Audrey Dudman and I am a fully qualified ‘Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor’. I have over 25-years’ experience providing relationship counselling for both couples and ind.ividuals. I am also a senior accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellor & Psychotherapists).

Being an ‘Integrative Counsellor’ means I use a combined approach to therapy, bringing together different elements of specific therapies. I do not believe there is a ‘one size fits all’ approach, for all couples, in every situation. Therefore, I tailor my style to suit your individual needs.

My work is diverse, and I am experienced in working with mixed cultures, same gender relationships, families and friendships.

I am also a supervisor, which means I support and advise other counsellors with elements of their work.

How online relationship counselling can help

I believe that communication is at the centre of all relationships. However, unfortunately, we can sometimes lose our way and the communication between us begins to break down. We can then find ourselves in a seemingly endless circle of mis-understanding. I will help you both gain an understanding of what isn’t working, from both perspectives and help you communicate effectively again.

It may be easy to find a relationship counsellor but more difficult knowing you have found the right one for you and your situation. I consider myself professional, respectful and easy to relate to, while providing a confidential, calm and supportive space to help you feel at ease. This will enable you to feel safe enough to be able explore the issues in your relationship.

My work at Online Couples Counselling involves a range of interactive, thought-provoking activities to help you to listen to one another, as well as helping you feel listened to. It does not involve taking sides or making judgements. Nor will I offer you ready-made solution. Instead, I will work with you both to help you achieve the goal you have set for yourselves. My aim is to help you make the required changes, as quickly as possible, whilst creating lasting, sustainable change

You will have the opportunity to: –

Talk openly and honestly with each other.
Learn more about your own and your partner’s inner world and emotional needs.
Develop a deeper understanding, connection and safety in the relationship.
Address negative and ‘stuck’ patterns in your relationship

Madeleine Kingsley

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Relationship Therapy

 

My name is Madeleine Kingsley and I’m a fully qualified Relate-trained relationship counsellor and member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy). I have 28 years of experience providing therapy for both couples and individuals.

I have written extensively about relationships and family life for newspapers and magazines. Interviewing experts in the field gave me great insight into how we think, feel and interact as couples. I was then inspired to train, share their wisdom and do this transformative work myself.

Relationships

It’s all too easy for the pressures of life – such as raising a family, work tension, issues with in-laws or financial worries – to chip away at intimacy. Stress can also deplete  excitement and that sense of being the soulmates you once were.

Often couples find themselves on shaky ground due to challenging life stages. This might be through the transition to parenthood, family illness, living with teenagers or an empty nest. You might still function as a working team but the emotional connection has stalled and romance has done a runner.

How I can help you

During our online relationship therapy sessions, I will listen attentively to you both. I offer a safe and confidential space to help you work out whether your relationship is just going through a bad patch or if it has, sadly, run its course.

I’m passionate about supporting couples through tough times, towards a brighter but  realistic future. Couples often start out feeling full of love and desire for each other, only to find themselves questioning where the ‘spark’ has gone. My job is to help you restore closeness and remember the strengths that brought you together in the first place.

You may be stuck in a cycle of arguments which you feel unable to resolve. Or perhaps you feel as though you have nothing significant to say to each other anymore. You may think it too risky to raise the issues that divide you for fear of conflict Some couples rub along in a ‘too good to leave, too bad to stay’ state.  They assume this is just what happens when you’ve been together for a while.

I don’t believe that any couple needs to ‘settle’ in a relationship. It may only take some professional relationship counselling to help you re-ignite the spark and set you up for a fresh and closer future.

I won’t judge you or make decisions for you.  Relationship therapy is a shared voyage of exploration. With my help you will come to see your own relationship more clearly, set your own goals and make your own choices.

Moving you forward

My online relationship therapy techniques will help you communicate more effectively. You can start sharing your thoughts and feelings with kindness as well as honesty. My training to work with families, children and young people enables me to see the bigger picture of which you are part.

Unhappy relationships can be vulnerable to affairs which lead to deep hurt and damage.

I won’t try and glue you back together if you feel the infidelity has struck a blow beyond repair and you choose to separate. If that’s the case, I will help you do so with the least possible pain and bitterness.

However, affairs don’t necessarily have to be terminal. I can help lead couples beyond blame, guilt and recrimination. We can explore what precipitated the infidelity in the first place and help you rebuild trust over time.

I work diversely and have experience working with same gender relationships. mixed cultures, families and friendships.

Ethical standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP code of ethics and ethical framework. I undertake regular professional development to maintain a high level of knowledge and practice and regular supervision with ongoing professional indemnity insurance.

Kay Doherty

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Couple Counsellor

 

My name is Kay Doherty and I am a fully qualified couple counsellor at ‘Online Couples Counselling’.  I have a Higher Diploma in Relationship Counselling and an Externship in ‘Emotionally Focused Therapy’.  I am also a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

My specialist area is relationship counselling, offering counselling to both heterosexual and same sex individuals and couples. I feel alive when new couples come with their individual issues, because each couple’s situation is so different. Working alongside couples as they develop a more secure base and a deeper connection with each other is extremely rewarding.

What is Emotionally Focused Relationship Therapy

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) was founded in Canada by Dr. Sue Johnson and is now practised worldwide.  It provides therapists with researched based tools that will enable a couple to feel connected and safe, through secure attachment.  EFT asserts that relationship problems occur when couples have experienced emotional disconnection with their partner  – which, in turn leads to struggles in the relationship. These struggles can develop into negative cycles which are difficult to break.  EFT will support you to get past these cycles, re-connect and build a secure relationship bond together. EFT can also be used to address individual issues.

How an online couple counsellor can help you

During our first session I will I explain how online relationship therapy works. I will also talk about confidentiality and my method of storing files/notes etc answering any questions you might have. This will also be your opportunity to tell me about the issues that you each feel need addressing – from both perspectives. Then together, we will discuss a plan going forward.

As a ‘Person Centered’ counsellor I believe each individual knows exactly what is best for them, on an individual level and within the relationship. Then, with the proper support, I will help you find the ability to heal yourselves.  I consider myself to be non-judgemental and accept people for who they are and how they feel. I understand the need for empathy and will take the time to get to know where you both are in the relationship. By allowing you both the time and space to listen and really ‘hear’ each other will bring great insight into the relationship.

‘Emotionally Focused Therapy’ has equipped me with the skills to assist you in exploring any recurring, negative patterns in your relationship. I will support you in learning new patterns of communicating and help you achieve a healthy, secure bond.

The process of change during our relationship counselling sessions can be transforming; and it will enable you to reach a place where you really ‘get’ each other.  Moving your relationship forward more positively in the way you have chosen to do so.

After the couple therapy ends

I will have helped you develop the skills required to be aware and recognise how a particular behaviour might lead to you slipping back into the negative cycle again.  This will allow you the negative cycle into positive interactions.  You will be able to fully understand each other and feel re connected again. The negative cycle will be replaced with love, understanding and security.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP ethical framework.  I regularly partake in professional development, have regular supervision and hold professional indemnity insurance.

Janine Murray

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Relationship Therapy

 

Hi, my name is Janine Murray and I’m a fully qualified individual and couple’s therapist with over 20 years’ experience. I hold Post Graduate Diplomas in both Relationship and ‘Integrative Counselling’. I am a Registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy).

My with couples for over 20 years and I practice the ‘Humanistic’ approach. Which means I believe we all have the capacity for growth and healing given the right conditions.

About Relationships

During my online relationship therapy sessions, I use ‘Emotionally Focused Therapy’, which is a caring and supportive way of getting out of those ‘stuck places’ we are all familiar with ​and into secure loving relationships – with ourselves, our partner and our family.

This way of working makes sense to me as a couple counsellor. I began to recognise that couples who seek therapy are often distressed and disconnected. Therefore, they claim to have very good reasons as to why they feel and behave as do within the relationship.

When there is conflict in a relationship, couples often struggle to stay connected. We want to be sure that our significant other is always there for us and they will respond when we reach for them and that they are emotionally available and present. The distress of not knowing and not feeling that connection leads us into patterns of behaviour that fuel the disconnection and we can spiral into feeling separate and alone.

How I can help you

At the first session I will ask you both what you hope to achieve out of the relationship counselling sessions. Whether you would like help to make your relationship work better than it currently is. Or perhaps you would like help in separating amicably. Maybe, one or both of you are unsure and would like to see how the therapy goes before you decide what you want. Whatever your goal, I will help you try and achieve them.
We will work collaboratively, because after all, you are the experts on your relationship. Emotionally Focused Therapy provides a road map to finding the patterns of behaviour and the deeper emotions that underpin those behaviours.

Together we will work to discover how you might have got ‘stuck’ in patterns where you both feel disconnected and distant from each other. I will help you discover how you both get ‘triggered’ and what your coping strategies are when this happens. We will then explore how those strategies impact each of you.
Negative patterns of communication and behaviour can arise for a variety of reasons. For instance, it may be down to the stress of life transitions, having children, loss of parents or work-related issues perhaps. These negative patterns can escalate where there is a lack of trust or a betrayal.

I will help you to recognise what is going on between you and help you find ways to transform them more positively in order to create a secure connection between you – if that is what you have set out to achieve. The goal is that your relationship becomes the place where you feel safe, cherished and understood.
I will help you become more connected with deeper, more effective communication. This will strengthen the bond in your relationship so you are both able to face the world and grow and develop together.

Ethical standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP ethical framework. Therefore, I undertake regular professional development and supervision. Alongside having professional indemnity insurance.

Kiran Kaur

Professional Online Counsellor

Relationship Counselling

 

Hi, my name is Kiran and I’m a fully qualified and accredited multilingual Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Relationship Therapist.  I am a fully registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and NCS (National Counselling Society).

I’m fluent in English, Punjabi, Hindi & Urdu and I have been running a successful counselling practice in Leeds, Sheffield & Peterborough for the last 12 years.

My background and experience mean that I am aware of the cultural and language differences that may arise when seeking relationship help. Therefore, by being able to fluently counsel in the above languages helps me remove barriers between myself and the couples I see.

My experience

I am experienced in counselling both couples and individuals, from all walks of life and backgrounds. I understand it can take courage taking the first step and seek help for your relationship. However, by taking the time to repair and understand each other once again will help remind you, that at some point, your relationship was the most important contributor/factor to your happiness.

A number of things can impact our relationships. This can include a stressful work/life balance, negative behaviour patterns, poor communication or external influences.

I consider myself warm, approachable and non-judgemental. My aim is to ensure that you both feel comfortable and have a platform where you can equally express your thoughts and feelings. I will support you to communicate with one another. This way you will gain a better understanding of what each of you are experiencing and how you feel. We will then explore the changes that need to be made to enable you to move forward. I will give you the tools to implement these strategies.

Professional relationship counselling

I provide a safe space which will allow you both the opportunity to talk openly and honestly with each other. I will encourage you both to listen empathetically so that you both feel ‘heard’.

Relationship counselling is not about attributing blame. Nor is it about me taking sides or forcing either one of you to take a particular course of action. It’s about helping you both develop a better understanding of each other, yourselves   and the role you both play in the relationship. Together, we will explore your options and find an amicable way of moving forward once you have chosen your path.

Through seeking professional relationship help, will enable you both to work with me in order to facilitate change in your relationship. Sometimes, talking to someone with no connection to yourself or your partner is all it takes for you to gain perspective. This is where a professional relationship counsellor, like myself, can help you understand how outside factors such as family values, religion, culture, lifestyle and of course work affect your relationship.

Zoom relationship counselling will help you reflect on the past and how it operates in the present. During our sessions, I will help you to communicate more effectively. Which will help you learn why misunderstandings, which may be minor, then escalate into an argument or an unresolvable situation. I will also help you negotiate and resolve conflicts where possible and understand the importance of compromise in a relationship.

In order for relationship counselling to be successful outcome it is important to find the right therapist for you.

Ethical standards

I work within the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision.

Jacinta McAuley

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Relationship Therapist

 

Hello, my name is Jacinta McAuley and I’m a fully qualified individual, couple and family therapist, with over 20 years’ experience. I am also BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) accredited.

My couple counselling training was through ‘Relate’. This is where I achieved a Graduate Certificate in ‘Couple Counselling’ a Post Graduate Diploma in ‘Couple Therapy’ and a Systemic Certificate in ‘Family Therapy’

My approach to couple counselling

I practice the ‘Systemic’ approach, which means understanding patterns and systems in our backgrounds; such as our culture, gender and family, patterns of belief and behaviour. This benefits couple counselling because it understands the social contexts couples are embedded in and influenced by.

This removes personal pathology, such as ‘blaming’ each other, which helps couples to have open and safe dialogue. For change to happen, couples need to feel accepted and listened to. Change in one part of the relational pattern or system, creates change in other parts. This helps couples explore what they might like to do differently.

I also take a ‘Psychodynamic’ viewpoint which explores the inner unconscious motivations and world of a person, also how the past affects the present. The couple relationship is a ‘good fit’ when each person holds a space for the other. Couple relationships and styles of connection (attachment) are initially formed by the template from our parenting and early life.

Therefore, by combining an understanding of the social and relational narrative or stories of the couple (systemic). Along with the ‘inner psychological space’ of each partner (psychodynamic) it opens up a route to greater understanding of past issues. This is helpful in gaining understanding how these issues might be showing in the present relationship.

This benefit of this approach during couples counselling is that it can improve how couples manage their relationship going forward. The relationship between the couple and counsellor is also fundamental in understanding what each partner brings to the conscious and unconscious relationship.

How I can help you

Relationships can run into difficulty for a variety of reasons. Such as a lack of connection or little emotional or sexual intimacy. Infidelity or life changes through work or bereavement can also impact a relationship. However, the main problem, in the vast majority of couples I see, is a breakdown of connection and communication. This can happen gradually over a number of years, leading to both parties feeling hurt, misunderstood and resentful.

All couples experience this in their own unique way. Through your stories, meanings and feelings I will help you identify the patterns that might have developed as a couple from your individual upbringing and backgrounds. I work from the values and culture of each person to understand of how any broader issues might be affecting your relationship.

I consider myself dedicated, passionate and trustworthy in my work and appreciate it can feel like a challenging step to ask for some help with your relationship. Therefore, I will do my best to make the process supportive and authentic to your needs – both as a couple and individually.

We will work together to try and achieve your aim for seeking relationship counselling. If you are unsure of your goal or the changes that might need to be made in your relationship, we can just allow that to unfold during the session. Therefore, enabling you to move forward more positively.

Relationship counselling online is a confidential, safe space where you will both be able to express you concerns within the relationship. It will allow you the opportunity to talk about what you need and how you feel about each other.  I will help you be heard, accepted and valued even if your thoughts and feelings are not aligned.

Moving you forward

Together, we will look at any helpful and unhelpful patterns you may have developed. This is to explore and understand the role each partner may be playing in sustaining unhelpful patterns.

I aim to build a therapeutic relationship between us that is warm, accepting and gently challenging. This enables you to understand each other more fully and work towards resolving issues. This may mean staying together as a couple or ending the relationship. I will help you in a way that promotes well-being and allows you to move to forward more positively.

Ethical standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

John Hobbs

Professional Online Counsellor

Couple Therapy Online

 

Hello, my name is John Hobbs and I am a fully qualified ‘Relate’ trained relationship therapist and individual counsellor.  I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and the NCS (National Counselling Society)

I trained as a therapist a little later in life having had a long and varied career. Therefore, I feel my knowledge and life experiences enhance my work as a relationship counsellor and allows me to take a more practical approach during therapy.

My training is an ‘integrative therapy’ which means I use a variety of approaches and interventions when working with couples. This means I’m not tied to a specific therapeutic method, which allows me a much wider, more flexible approach. I recognise the value of the individual within the relationship and recognise that there is no “one size fits all” approach, therefore I will tailor our sessions for your unique situation.

My approach to couple counselling

Relationship counselling is a specialist style of therapy. The focus is not just on the individuals in the relationship – but the relationship itself. Like the individuals, the relationship will have its own “life. Which means, it has a beginning, middle and end. Like the individuals, the relationship it will also develop and change as time moves on.

Life events can impact a relationship and sometimes cause problems. For example, the arrival of children, physical/mental health issues, work related issues, finances, bereavement, can impact on a relationship. We will work together to explore these issues. Looking at how past events, individual and shared may have moulded and changed the relationship.

As a professional relationship therapist. I will provide a safe space for you to explore the issues and help you ‘hear’ your partners point of view. I value each person equally and do not judge, allowing you both the time to talk and to listen to what is being said.

During couple therapy online, I will take a “problem solving” approach to the issues presented. Then together, we will form a practical and effective strategy in order to deal with them. This will help you move forward more positively in the way you choose.

Couple feedback.

“John recognises that people are the experts on themselves. He has an open, direct, and practical approach to therapy and will provide you with the most effective therapy tailored for your needs”

Ethical Standards

The National Counselling Society and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy provide a comprehensive ethical framework that I abide by.

I complete regular developmental training courses and have regular supervision. I also have ongoing professional civil liability insurance.

Sherene Charles

Professional Online Counsellor

Couples Therapy Online

 

Hello, and welcome. My name is Sherene Charles and I am a fully qualified and experienced individual and couple’s therapist at Online Couples Counselling. I am Senior Accredited with ‘The National Counselling Society’ (NCS) and the’ Infant Loss Foundation’ I am also a member of the ‘British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’ (BACP).

As a qualified clinical supervisor, my work also involves providing support for other therapists, to help them work effectively with their clients. I am passionate about helping others navigate their way through the stress of everyday life, which is the reason I became a therapist. I find it rewarding supporting others and desire to help people to live their best life yet.

Why couples therapy online?

Generally, couples seek help with their relationship because they want relief from their pain and distress. Unfortunately, more often than not, it is when they have reached breaking point and their relationship is on fire. Sometimes, people find it difficult to admit to themselves that there is a problem in their relationship; let alone to their partner; silently hoping that if they ignore the issues, they will resolve themselves and go away.

However, in my experience, this is rarely the case. Because by and choosing to ignore the signs, it can be extremely detrimental to both parties. I believe, if you are concerned about your relationship, you will certainly benefit from relationship counselling. Or even if your relationship is ‘okay’ but you would like it to be ‘great’ then couples counselling can help you achieve that.

I feel privileged to be able to provide support for couples, who are often worn out by the same unresolved issues. Which, when left to fester, creates a sense of going around the same old mountain and resentment begins to build. Online couple therapy will provide you the opportunity to review your relationship in a safe and confidential environment. I will allow you the time and space to appreciate any aspects of your relationship that are working well and help you clearly identify any areas of improvement.

What to expect​

Laughter provides great benefit; it’s like medicine – but without the side effects. Therefore, humour is a key ingredient during my relationship counselling sessions. Along with offering you both warmth, challenge, empathy and compassion. I continually aspire to providing a safe setting that will enable you both the courage to examine what has gone in the past, which might have led you to this point. I will gently encourage you to face any deep fears and help you explore your hopes for the future.

During the first therapy session I will explain how the marriage counselling works. There will be an opportunity for you both to ask questions. I will ask for some basic information about you and we will complete an assessment together. This assessment enables me to gather any important information and establish your needs in order to find the best way for me to support you. It is also an opportunity for you to gain a sense of how I work. Alongside ensuring you feel comfortable with me and feel that I am the right therapist for you.

I gain great satisfaction and fulfilment in supporting couples as they courageously take steps towards moving forward more positively – in whichever way they choose.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). Alongside being an accredited member of the NCS (National Counselling Society)

How online marriage counselling can help

Integrative means I’m trained in different theoretical approaches so I can tailor the therapy to the style which suits you best.

During our couple counselling sessions I work mainly in a ‘solution focused’ way. This means we will focus on what we can change to improve your relationship going forward. We will of course look back at the past because it’s is important to gain an understanding of what has caused issues in your relationship. This will be from both your perspectives so both feel heard and understood. We can then focus on what you both require from each other going forward to achieve your relationships goals.

Relationship counselling, is about the relationship, not the individuals. Therefore, I will remain unbiased and non-judgmental and allow you both the opportunity to talk openly and honestly with each other, in a way you may not have done for some time.

I believe that to get the most out of marriage counselling, it is important to find a therapist that is right for you. For it to be successful, you will need someone you can connect with and feel comfortable and secure opening up to. The feedback I get is that couples is that are very comfortable talking to me and they find it easy to be open and talk honestly about how they really feel. This helps people to feel understood and gets you both communicating more effectively.

I work diversely with vast experience working with mixed cultures, same gender relationships, families and friendships.

Sally Cloke

Professional Online Counsellor

Relationship Counselling Online

 

Hello, my name is Sally Cloke and I am an experienced, BACP accredited integrative therapist and couple counsellor at Online Couples Counselling.

Sometimes couples view couple counselling as last resort. That’s because they may have been experiencing ongoing difficulties for a long time and  have reached a point where they are considering separation.

Alternatively, couples feel unsure that marriage counselling is the right path for them. In my experience, a vast majority of couples find it a positive experience. Often reporting, that they wished they had started couple therapy many months /years before.

People seek help with their relationship for a variety of reasons. A vast majority of couples are hoping to make their relationship work better than it currently is. In which case, relationship counselling online is highly successful. That is if both parties are willing to ‘really’ listen to their partner.  I will emphasise the importance of each seeing his or her contributions to the problems and the possible solutions going forward.

Other couples seek couple therapy for help in separating. If so, I will help you do so more amicably. Alternatively, some couples are not quite sure what they hope to achieve and will decide later, that’s also OK. I will tailor the sessions for what you are both hoping to achieve, even if you are unsure.

How I can help

My aim is to provide you and your partner with a safe and confidential setting to help you explore and progress your relationship. Regardless of your age, race, religious beliefs, gender identity or sexual orientation. I consider myself understanding and empathetic and I work with the ‘relationship’ rather than the individuals in an accepting and non-judgmental way.

I will help you improve the communication between you, effectively creating curiosity and support, rather than conflict. We will work together to help you to understand how you, and your partner. can express your individuality while simultaneously supporting your relationship. This is the art of differentiation. Once you’ve passed through the “we” of the romantic stage, successful differentiation is the key to an authentic and fulfilling longer-term relationship.

Common relationship issues include –

  • Misunderstandings and tensions resulting from differences in viewpoints
  • Experiencing a range of feelings including; resentment, anger, and anxiety
  • A lack of trust or loss of connection
  • Lack of intimacy
  • Infidelity
  • Difficulties arising with other family members

Lorna Ashley

Professional Online Counsellor

Online Relationship Counselling

 

My name is Lorna Ashley and I’m a qualified integrative counsellor at Online Couples Counselling. Integrative therapy means I’m flexible in the way I work and use the best possible approach to achieve the outcome you choose.

Whether you decide that you want to stay together or want help in separating, my aim is to promote a positive transition for change, fulfilment and self-awareness.

I have extensive experience in both individual and relationship counselling. I’m also a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

My online relationship counselling experience

I have been practicing for a number of years both in private practice and for two charitable organisations, where my work focusses on bereavement and suicide. I am also clinical lead supervisor which means I advise other counsellors with elements of their work.

About relationships

Life happens and it’s not always kind. The things we thought we had a handle on and believed we could cope with, can suddenly seem uncertain, confusing and overwhelming. We might experience thoughts and feelings which leave us feeling unable to make sense of it all. Your inner world can be very different to your external world. How you feel you have to be seen or heard can lead to conflicting emotions within your relationship.

Very few relationships are conflict-free. When one of our most important relationship begins to falter, our health and happiness often suffers. Whilst many couples might try and work through their problems alone, it’s difficult when emotions are running high. Therefore, it can be incredibly useful to seek outside professional help.

How I can help

Together we will look at what lies behind the current difficulties from both your perspectives by paying attention both to the past and the present. In order to bring about change you desire.

My role at Online Couples Counselling is to facilitate change and resolution by helping you both communicate more effectively and reach your own conclusions under the guidance of a professional.

Whatever your age, background, race or culture, you are not alone. Together we can go walk the journey and explore what could be going on for you both. Being heard and talking freely in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space can be incredibly empowering in understanding who you are and how you can be more true to you within your relationship, whilst navigating your own path for growth and development.

I am passionate in what I do and committed to working ethically and safely with my clients to overcoming the challenges that we are presented with.

Ethical standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP ethical framework alongside undertaking regular professional development and supervision. I also hold professional indemnity insurance.
