FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do people come for relationship therapy?

People come for many reasons. Mostly people want something better for their relationships and their lives. Couple Coaching supports people to resolve conflict, communicate positively, develop equality and unity, overcome anger, and enrich relationships.

What difference will it make?

It depends upon you and your partner. Every relationship is different. Moving forward may be easier in a coached session.

Is there a client/practitioner agreement?
Client Agreement for services

Yes. I value transparency around my scope of practice before we begin the first session.

Please complete this Client/Practioner Agreement before we meet.

You can fill it in together or separately at different times.

How much does it cost?

The First Session costs you nothing to try

At 30 minutes into the first session, half-way through, I’ll check in with you to see if you both want to continue.

If, after 30 minutes you prefer to find another practitioner, you can choose to leave.

I’ll not charge you.¬†

I offer a no-obligation, no-fee, trial.
This allows you 30 minutes to see if The Practice is a good fit for you both.

If you choose to continue on in the session you will be charged for the full 1-hour session.

Get help early. Often couples wait too long to get help.

How much is the first session?

It works like this:

First, make your booking, then meet with me.

Like all sessions, the first session is also one hour.

At 30 minutes into the first session, half-way through, I’ll check in with you to see if you both want to continue.

Why meet with me?

Meeting with me is something you and your partner would have to choose.

  • Do you and your partner have difficult issues in your relationship? About money? About sex?
  • Is there is a struggling-to-talk problem, a talking-over-the-top problem, a not-listening or a not-being-heard problem?
  • Is the loudness (shouting), the criticism, the contempt or the disrespect present in your relationship?
  • Do either of you have trouble respecting each-other's boundaries?
  • Do either of you want to set boundaries?
  • Is there is a loss-of-trust?

If "YES", then perhaps getting help could mean book a session
