TweedleDumDeePeople often come to us because they think their partner is not loving them enough, in the right way, not understanding them, or treating them badly.

We all do this. It is a way of trying to digest something psychically, and romantic relationships, in which we are intimate and vulnerable, invariably become the arena for this kind of re-enactment – and, potentially, its healing and resolution.

We have found this to be a highly effective, empowering approach to couple counselling.

We have written an article called Love Is Enough that you can request if you would like to hear more about how this works.
