Probably you are exploring counselling because you are uncomfortable and/or unhappy.. You may feel bogged down by strong feelings or by inertia..

To find clarity.. To make connections between apparently unconnected experiences.. To unearth unexpected options.. To explore safe ways for you to move away from your stuck place.. Many people have reported back to me that they feel better because they have expressed themselves out loud and been heard by a non-judgemental witness.. Often they say they are empowered by this experience to find new ways forward, at their own speed.. Sometimes this entails finding a new way to adjust to whatever is going on, and not to make changes.. Often they make the onward journey with me beside them.. There is a golden moment when you feel you might begin to face unresolved stuff.. Counselling can support you to grasp the nettle make appropriate changes.. Qualifications Training..

For five years I was also the part-time paid co-ordinator of Cotswold Counselling s Home Counselling service.. Initial contact.. Everything that passes between us is confidential..

Christmas, or is it Aaaaargh! Christmas?.. 1 RELATIONSHIPS NEED SPRING CLEANING TOO.. There comes a time in a relationship when each partner knows the other well their habits, how to get support, and how to respond when fending off perceived criticism from the other.. The other day I heard the phrase banked resentments.. What a concept! I keep a credit balance of the unresolved issues I have with you so that I can cash in a resentment when, for example I need to repel a perceived attack.. Me? Selfish? What about that time when you.. and here comes the banked resentment, which I hope will deflect your attack/criticism.. This kind of defence by attack keeps two people in an uncomfortable stuck place together.. It often creeps into a relationship after the first excitement has worn off and the banality of day to day existence hits home.. Couples seem particularly prone to using resentment credits after the life-changing effects of having children.. Daily life settles into a frantic routine.. The relationship just keeps afloat, in spite of all the complexities  ...   trapped and alone in whatever degree of unhappiness.. Sexual issues and the pain they evoke can be dealt with if they are sensitively and openly explored.. By talking in confidence with a counsellor or therapist, people can discover more about how their own attitudes and expectations of sex have been developed and been influenced by their families, peer group or culture.. They can find the support needed to look at their patterns of behaviour and reactions to sexual issues.. Finding a new clarity can reveal choices where before there has seemed only stalemate.. Christabel Butler UKAHPP,UKCP.. 4.. COUNSELLING FOR COUPLES:.. WHEN A RELATIONSHIP FOUNDERS.. When a relationship founders, it is useful to look back at its development.. At first, each person is listening carefully to the other s preferences.. The tendency is to accommodate any differences, skimming over them concentrating on the shared enjoyment and similarities.. Having learned how best to connect and be together, mostly any disparities are put aside.. When coping with a new situation, like having children, redundancy or moving house, any vulnerabilities in the relationship become activated.. Mostly each person knows how to operate together when things go smoothly.. They have few tools for dealing with disagreement, miscommunication or feeling stuck.. By the time a couple is thinking that counselling might help, it is likely they are not able to hear or listen to each other, neither do they want to.. Each feels misunderstood and probably hurt and angry.. The counsellor will make clear that (s)he is there to look at the relationship, not to take sides or shame and blame.. The work is: to map the current situation of the relationship in all aspects, and to help them both understand how they have reached this point; to support them to find out what changes would have to be made to motivate them to stay together, or if that is not possible, to consider separation.. Then there is an opportunity to work on a way forward, together or apart.. The counsellor facilitates communication.. Usually couples trying to resolve problems go round and round in well-trodden circles, attacking and/or defending or sometimes avoiding all but the most cursory communication.. In the therapy room, each has an opportunity to be heard and to hear.. Useful procedures for clearer communication can be learned and used outside counselling sessions.. Relationship counselling is fruitful before things go awry.. Increased awareness of ways in which couples communicate/miscommunicate helps them to prevent acute hiccups in the relationship developing into chronic difficulties.. Christabel Butler UKAHPP, UKCP.. For more information on relationship counselling.. 01367 850516.. 5 AH! CHRISTMAS.. Or it is AAAAARRGH! CHRISTMAS?.. The pressure to have a wonderful/jolly/peaceful time builds weeks before December 25th.. Sometimes the reality is a miserable/anxious/combative time.. The worst Christmas that I remember experiencing involved being alone in a remote cottage, in gales and pouring rain, with the possibility of being flooded by sewage and waking to an electricity cut.. That meant sandbags at the doors, no heating or hot water, no cooker or tv in those pre-internet days.. What got me through (apart from the linesmen s heroic work to get the power back by the evening), was being able to phone a neutral, empathetic person, who listened to my story, let me feel sorry for myself, allowing me to cry and to be angry, until I started feeling better.. Because of his listening skills and his witnessing of my feelings, I was freed up to access some self-support and to consider some creative ideas for being less miserable.. Reflective listening is amongst the attributes of a good counsellor, as is having a non-judgmental, open mind and an awareness of self.. A client can be overwhelmed by strong feelings, feel distressed, be struggling with anger, lacking in self-confidence, grieving or stuck in depression.. Being heard by somebody who listens and who can allow feelings to be expressed safely is a relief.. Clarity follows, often with the discovery of options hitherto unnoticed, and choice for change.. However well-meaning friends and family are, it is hard for them to hear discomfort or pain.. They often feel they must solve the problem, when what may be needed is to be heard sympathetically.. I and my colleagues in Cotswold Talking Therapies offer professional counselling and longer-term therapy, (in several locations), to individuals, to couples, to young people, to the housebound and to separating couples participating in collaborative law..
