I am frequently consulted by both men and women with a variety of relationship problems at my practice just outside of Battle, East Sussex.
Therapy can help all kinds of relationship problems. This is whether they are with our romantic partner, our friends, family, or work colleague. I have helped many people with relationship problems using psychotherapy.
Most, if not all, of us with relationship problems also have other issues such as low confidence or low self-esteem. Or perhaps some social anxiety. And of course, stress makes all of our problems worse.
Research carried out since the 1950’s has shown that our earliest lessons about emotional intimacy and how to relate to other people, occur in the relationships we have with our parents or carers in our very early years. We call these relationships ‘Attachment’ relationships. These lessons become a kind of blueprint or template for how we interact with our partners, friends, and other people in adulthood. If our Attachment relationships were ‘good enough’ (on an emotional level) then we tend not to have too many problems relating to others in our adult life. However, when there are too many mistakes, deficits, or failures in these early relationships, we will often have problems later on in life in our relationships.
We now know that problems in our early Attachment relationships link to at least 90% of adult relationship problems. Fortunately, we can resolve these problems using appropriate therapy, often Lifespan Integration. Once we have amended and updated our relationship blueprint, we can change the ways we relate to others.
Please note that I am not a formally trained Couples therapist. However, I am able to work with each partner individually. This is usually not during the same time frame as each other. We may have an occasional review session with both partners in attendance.
Although I will often use Lifespan Integration for these problems, I offer other therapy approaches too. The choice of which one (or more) to take depends on the individual and their circumstances. We usually make the decision together during the initial consultation.
