conversations for couples
As a human species are wired for connection and emotional dependency and acknowledgement of our emotional inter-connectedness is crucial to healthy functioning. Our intimate relationships are often our most treasured, yet through fears of loss, abandonment or rejection we paradoxically end up engaging in unconscious behaviours which place strain on our emotional connections.
In working with couples, my role is two-fold: Firstly I hold and create the space making it safe to start expressing and exposing those vulnerable sides of yourself to your partner. The space to make difficult and threatening conversations possible. Then, drawing on a variety of modalities, skills and experience I bring a level of enquiry and exploration into what aspects of yourself are being potentially marginalized in your attempts to try and keep your relationships safe: What fears are holding you back in your particular relationship dynamic? What is not being said but being felt?
We explore Your Relationship Dream and create Your Relationship Map – What is your vision for your union together? What are your relationship values? Where are you now, Where are you going, and how are you going to get there?
Awareness is key. From the place of having insight and understanding this shines more light on the territory to navigate.
Without boxing or categorizing, using profile assessment tools can often provide great support in providing a better perspective of where you are coming from as well as the default perspective of your partner. From the place of understanding and insight it can bring greater awareness to your conscious choice making in your communications and engagements.

I have found it to be an incredibly valuable tool in my own relationships where insight was gained about conflicting thinking styles, allowing for greater understanding and patience with my partner whilst equally giving me great insight into myself and areas of development towards finding alignment with my values. – Tiffany Stone
