Celia Hardwick BA MBACP
I'm an Emotionally Focused Couples' Counsellor, with extensive experience of couples' counselling within the NHS and private sector.
Cost: £50 per session.
Weekend daytime and evening sessions are available.
Sessions take place in a quiet private location, away from the hustle and bustle of life. There's free parking and easy transport links via bus and mainline train. I'm able to do home visits if it'll help you.
Please feel free to arrange a short meeting or telephone call to get to know me a little before committing to counselling sessions.
What happens in Couples' Counselling?
I'll meet you as a couple, in a private room, where I'll help you to explore your difficulties, and gain an understanding of how you want your relationship to be, with a particular emphasis on identifying and changing the negative cycles that can be so painful and distressing. I'll then suggest that we meet for one individual session each, early on in the process, in order to obtain a more detailed picture of each of your histories and concerns.
After identifying the repeating patterns of behavior that cause distress in your relationship, I'll help you to develop new ways of communicating and relating to each other. I'll work with both partners to provide a safe and supportive space where difficult issues such as affairs and other major challenges can be explored.
I'm trained to have a clear and flexible map of how to help you move towards a safe, strong and loving relationship, and will guide and support you through this process.
The goal is to help you to re-discover the feelings that attracted you to one another in the first place and help you to restore a safe and mutually supportive bond between you.
I am a member of the British Emotionally Focused Therapy Centre (BEFT Centre)
