With over 15 years of experience as a psychotherapist, I have worked with many couples to provide therapy to build a positive relationship. My name is Louise Shuttleworth and I’ve helped couples looking for therapy, either face to face or via my online sessions. The stresses and strains of normal life as a couple, when work, children and families get in the way, can all put a strain on the most healthy of relationships. This year, in 2020, these strains have definitely pushed some couples to the limit.
Which is why I now offer online couples therapy.
With possible employment problems, money issues, being with each other 24 hours of every day, health & isolation problems, home schooling, plus so many more issues that have been happening this year, 2020 has no doubt been very taxing and troubling for many couples. It’s understandable that you may feel like you could now be on the edge of a breakup. With online couples therapy or relationship counselling, my aim is to help you with any of these issues you may be having in your relationship with your partner, but with no worries about social distancing.
I am a UKCP MBACP Integrative Psychotherapist and AC Psychological Coach and I still see many couples on a face to face basis. But with the challenges we are all facing this year, I also now offer Online Couples Therapy, along with all my other therapies. Meaning I can still talk to you both on a face to face basis, but also on Zoom, Skype, Facetime or WhatsApp. This also means I can work with clients on a nationwide basis – I can now help you wherever you live in the country, if we speak online. And actually many couples prefer this and will continue to work with me on this basis, even once things get back to ‘normal’.
As a result of my online sessions, I can help you both, by:
It’s completely understandable if online couples therapy seems like a daunting prospect. It’s also completely normal to find it difficult to open up and talk about your feelings at first. That’s why the initial online couples therapy session should be seen more as an opportunity to see how it feels. You may not like talking online, but actually it may really help you both – every couple is different! After the first session, there is never any obligation to continue if you do not feel comfortable.
When working with couples on therapy sessions, the process should always be collaborative. This is because it will help you both understand each other’s problems and help you deal with them in future.
I work from my private consulting rooms in Brighton. So if you’re in Brighton, Lewes, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, or anywhere in these areas of Sussex, I can still physically meet with you. However, if you would like to book an online couple therapy session, then let me know when you get in touch. Please contact me using the form on the website, via email, or call me on 07956 684455.
I am now offering online sessions via Zoom, Skype, Facetime and calls. Please contact me for more information.
