Therapy for Marriages & couples
You are devastated. It feels like your reality has been shattered. Everything you thought you knew to be true now seems uncertain.
You know that if the two of you are ever going to be able to make it, you’ll need to find a way to rebuild the broken trust. But when it comes to having these hard conversations, the two of you end up shouting at each other until someone storms off to another room.
Before this incident, you felt like you could rely on your partner to be honest with you. Sure, your relationship wasn’t perfect, but when things came up, were able to work through it. But this is different. You just can’t sweep what happened under the rug and move on.
You used to believe the best about your partner, but now you are not so sure he’s trustworthy.
Somewhere along the way he started leaving out details and telling half-truths.
At first you weren’t sure if it was your imagination or if you were being paranoid. You started to doubt yourself and wonder if you really were as crazy as he said. But that was before you found out the truth.
Your worst fears have come true and you don’t know how you’ll ever recover from this pain.
You spend most of your time crying. The rest of the time you’re feeling pissed. How could this have happened?
You knew your relationship wasn’t perfect, and you knew couples had their struggles, but you never though you’d be dealing with your trust being broken. You never imagined you’d be betrayed by this person who you care about so much.
You have always felt that trust was the most important thing in a relationship.
You swore to yourself that if it was ever broken, you’d leave.
So, you certainly didn’t expect that you’d be open to marriage & couples counselling to help you rebuild trust.

The Marriage & Couples
Book a free 15-minute no-obligation call so we can chat more about working together.
It’s my hope that even before your first session you’ll be confident that we can work well together. I want you to have the opportunity to ask about my training and experience if this would put your mind at ease. Or, to find out more about what a couples therapy session would be like.
I want you to make sure you know about my office policies and location. My hope is that by doing this ahead of time, it will make coming to therapy in my Bedford office a bit less stressful.
If I’m not the right person for you, I will point you in the right direction, so you can get the help you need.
Our first session is 80 minutes and will feel like a long conversation between the three of us.
I’ll explain in greater detail what to expect in couples therapy and explore the history of your relationship how your trust with each other has broken down.
2nd & 3rd sessions: These sessions are individual sessions where you and your partner will meet alone with me. This will help me find out more about your take on the relationship and find out more about the parts of your personal history that might impact your current relationship. This is best done in a 1:1 session with me, but I want you to know I won’t be keeping secrets and everything I learn is for the purpose of helping me to do my best work in the relationship.
From our fourth session onwards, we will always work together as a team. In the early stages of marriage & couples counselling, I generally meet with couples weekly. This allows us to identify the ways in which you have gotten stuck and unhelpful patterns that are happening between the two of you that are contributing to your relationship problems.
In each session you can expect to deepen your connection with your partner and repair the painful breach of trust that happened between you. Through the practical work we do in session so you’ll be equipped for real-life situations and know how to handle tough conversations when they come up. You’ll learn to communicate in a more vulnerable way so you can resolve difficulties together rather than feeling like the other person is the problem.
Once you start feeling closer and more connected, we will decrease the frequency of our appointments so you can take the skills we’ve worked on together and go out and live your life. You will leave therapy feeling like you’ve got a partner who you can trust and know in your heart they’ll be with even through the challenging moments of life.
