Duration negotiated: Usually 1 hour weekly.
The couples counselling and therapy is offered by Steven Eserin, a Gestalt psychotherapist since 2002.
I offer an initial assessment session, which is free. This is used time to explore what you need to move forward and how we might accomplish this together; It is a time for you to ask questions about the therapy and see if it is the right one for you. All our discussions will be held in strictest confidence.
This therapy covers a wide range of issues, from relationship breakdown, communication issues and sexual problems, through to joint personal development. If you are undecided as to whether this is for you why not call for a confidential chat, and book in for your free initial assessment before you decide to take things forward.
During therapy you to explore how you interact with each other and your environment. We will look closely at how you relate to one another, both the strengths and weaknesses. You will be supported to explore your experience in the here and now; and challenged/enabled to explore yourselves within a safe space. With the emphasis on what is happening right now we challenge perceptions and fixed behaviours, and support you to change unhelpful behaviours for something that brings clearer communication.
I use a mixture of psychotherapy, experimentation and here and now focused counselling. I work with a wide range of issues, here are just a few of the many things we cover highlighted below:
Emotional and physical intimacy
Jealousy and envy
Sexual contact and expression
Arousal, or lack of arousal
Boredom and desensitisation
Domesticity and the death of Eros.

"I was struggling with a lack on intimacy with my wife, visiting escorts of all things. Yet I never felt my therapist judged me, we talked through my need for transactional sex, and to hold people at a distance. I now feel closer to my wife and don't need to see escorts" OM 2018.
