Beverley Chapman, Relationship Counsellor
I’m passionate about helping couples and individuals who are having difficulties in their relationships. I know only too well how a bad relationship can make you feel. Anger, frustration, pain and confusion are all common emotions and feelings.
Being in a relationship that isn’t working makes you emotionally frazzled. Sometimes we find ourselves repeating the same negative patterns of behaviour, which have become a habit and difficult to break.
All too often, it is easy to blame our partner, especially, what he or she should, or should not be doing, rather than looking at what we can do differently.
Relationships are complex, after all, we’re not robots, programmed to be the “perfect partner”.
Relationships need nurturing.
Equally, I know how great it feels to be in a loving healthy relationship. It makes you happy and gives you satisfaction and emotional wellbeing.
I’m fascinated by relationships
18 years ago I started training with Relate (the UK’s leading relationship specialist). Over the years I’ve had the privilege to work with 1000’s of couples and individuals, helping them to explore the dynamics of their relationship and to find solutions to their difficulties. I also trained with the London based Tavistock Clinic who specialise in working with Couples and depression. I understand the impact of how depression and anxiety can destabilise a relationship.
I know that coming to see a counsellor is difficult for many couples, especially when they feel they have hit crisis point or feel they have nowhere to turn, but I know that therapy will help you to achieve the relationship you deserve.
