Love in the time of Covid
Our couple relationships are under more pressure than ever at the moment - lack of space from each other and having to manage the different roles and tasks that lockdown requires. How can we manage it? Are there strategies that can help couples get through it? Is there a possibility to use this time to reflect and to get closer to each other? Couple therapy can be a creative and helpful space to think about these ideas and to work on relationship difficulties whether existing or exacerbated by the lockdown situation. My couple therapy practice is currently on Zoom. I work in private practice and as a senior counsellor at Tavistock Relationships and at Family Law in Partnership.
If you are considering getting some help for your relationship, initially I recommend that we meet online for a consultation where we can discuss your situation and think together about the way forward.
About couple therapy
Therapy provides a space for individuals or couples to think about the relationship difficulties they are having. It may be that help is needed with a certain issue such as moving in together, getting married, having a baby, separation or divorce, an affair or a bereavement. There may be issues around intimacy and sex. Or it may feel less specific but there is a sense that there are difficulties communicating or repetitive arguments that don't seem able to be resolved. Sometimes couples wish to invest in the health of their relationship by having a regular space devoted to the relationship. I offer short term and long term working arrangements and though I usually work weekly with people there may be times when something more flexible is going to be helpful.
