|“What a revelation. You have enabled me to see things from a different perspective and aspects in my life now make so much more sense, on so many levels. I’d heard you were good!”

Keeping positive relations going between family, partners, business colleagues and friends takes energy. And it’s no surprise that, at times, tempers flare or rows ensue. It’s all part of life’s daily tapestry. But when things take a turn for the worse and communications start to seriously break down, I provide an unbiased opinion with practical tools and skills to help build bridges and build future pathways.
To change things, you must want to improve a relationship. After all, if it’s important to you it’s worth the effort to change.
From here, we explore who we are and how we came to be. Or, another way of putting it is, how we came to react the way that we do. What lessons did our elders and adult role models teach us about relationships? Or, as a fellow therapist said, what do we know about our ‘tribal’ behaviour?
Understanding ourselves helps us to see why we behave the way we do. It also illustrates how understanding other people gives us a better idea of where they are coming from. Looking onwards, I guide you through the process of adjusting your behaviours to reach your desired change. Whilst working towards this goal it’s worth remembering that, whilst we cannot change the people around us, we can develop stronger and better ways of managing our own emotions and behaviour.
