Free Consultations for Couples Counselling

I know that it is not always easy for couples to decide they could benefit from counselling. It is a big step and understandably can feel risky. But when you contact me at Frances Brown Counselling, I will be more than happy to talk to you about your situation and how counselling can help you. By providing all my potential clients with complimentary consultations, I hope to make each of you feel supported, understood and ready to take the first step in an effective and compassionate therapy process.

Emotionally Focused Therapy Can Bring Relief from Emotional Pain

When couples are caught in a repeating negative cycle of angry criticism and icy withdrawal that leaves partners feeling hurt and alone, counselling can help change your despair into relief and hope, right from the first appointment. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples provides a therapeutic roadmap to rebuilding secure, loving connection. Specific techniques have been designed to help couples reduce conflict and find new ways to communicate that strengthen your love bond. By tracking your current pattern of communication and exploring deeper, underlying emotions, unhealthy patterns of interaction gradually shift into a new dynamic that builds trust and safety, paving the way for intimacy to spark and happiness to grow! My couples counselling approach is effective for any couple struggling in their relationship. Some of the focus during your sessions will include:

  • increasing awareness and de-escalation of the negative interaction patterns that you and your partner are caught in
  • discovering new ways to communicate that bring each other into closer connection
  • consolidating effective communication strategies to last a lifetime
