Relationship Therapy

Relationship therapy, also known as couples therapy is a form of therapy designed to help people in romantic relationships. Relationship therapy offers a supportive environment where we will work through your difficulties and find lasting solutions. Together we will unpack the issues you are facing, set goals and decide together how to work towards your joint relationship vision.

Sessions involve talking therapy, developing communication skills, psychoeducation plus at home interventions and exercises for you to try between sessions.


As a relationship therapist I can help with:

  • Communication difficulties

  • The impact of fertility issues

  • Separation

  • Infidelity

  • Mis-matched sexual needs

  • Mis-matched relationship orientations (monogamous/polyamorous differences or kink)

  • Intimacy building 

  • The impact of parenting difficulties 

  • Increasing relationship confidence

  • Conflict and problem solving

  • Opening up a relationship

  • Strengthen emotional connection

  • Gain insight into relationship patterns

  • Transitioning impacts

Plus all the difficulties listed on the sex therapy page, in context of how it affects the relationship


My approach considers all biological/social/cultural aspects of your lives and how this impacts your sexuality and relationships. 

Biological factors: Biological factors, such as hormones and genetics, can play a role in how people behave in relationships. For example, research has shown that the hormone oxytocin, sometimes called the "love hormone," is released during physical touch and can promote feelings of bonding and trust between partners. Additionally, certain genetic traits may be associated with personality traits that can impact how people approach relationships.

Social factors: Social factors, such as family dynamics and social norms, can also influence how people approach relationships. For example, someone who grew up in a family where open communication and emotional expression were encouraged may be more likely to seek out those qualities in a romantic partner. Similarly, social norms and expectations around gender roles and relationships can influence how people behave in relationships.

Cultural factors: Cultural factors, such as religious beliefs and cultural values, can also impact how people approach relationships. For example, someone from a culture that places a high value on family and community may prioritise those relationships over romantic relationships. Similarly, different cultures may have different expectations around dating and marriage.

All of these factors can impact your beliefs, values, and behaviours in relationships, and can influence how you interact with their partner/s. By understanding these factors and how they may be influencing your relationship, you can work to build stronger and more fulfilling connections with your partner/s.
