Sharon KirbyI specialise in working with couple and family relationships. Couples therapy may be short-term or a longer ongoing process. I also offer couple ‘intensives’, for clients who find it difficult to attend on a regular basis and for couples I’ve worked with previously.I’ve been working as an Integrative Psychotherapist for over 25 years and have extensive experience of working with individuals and couples. I’ve completed specialist trainings in couples therapy and combine theory, insights and interventions drawn from a range of models and approaches, including those developed by Ester Perel, Terence Real, Sue Johnson (Emotionally Focussed Therapy), Harville Hendrix (Imago therapy) and Nick Duffel & Helena Lovendal (Creative Couples Therapy).Relationships are vital to our wellbeing; they may provide a source of enjoyment, stabilty, connection and intimacy. Couple relationships can also feel extremely challenging at times. When a couple relationship is truly alive, it changes, develops and attempts to grow. Like any other living processes, couple relationships require attention and nurturing to reach their true potential. Sometimes, it’s not possible for a relationship to grow in the way that meets the needs of both partners. Couples therapy can help you explore what paths and possibilites are open and support you as you find your way.
