Scope of Practice
This document outlines the scope of my practice.
My practice holds to the social purpose of working with couples and individuals to assist in the healing of damaged relationships.
The location of my practice within the broad field of relationship work can be seen to be positioned and qualified by Anthony M. Grant and Robert M Green in their published paper, Developing clarity on the coaching‐counselling conundrum: Implications for counsellors and psychotherapists . The work of Grant and Green constitutes an alignment and location of my practice within that which Michael White describes as that of “other thinkers who locate themselves within the broad field of family therapy” (White, 2011). I work with couples to introduce relationship tools that research shows to bring about the hoped for change to enduring couple relationships(Gottman, 2020).
