Couple Counselling - by Skype, FaceTime, or Phone
Michael Friedrich provides couple counselling by Skype, FaceTime, or Phone worldwide, including: the UK, the USA, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong & Singapore.
Couples typically have difficulties because most people find emotions hard to have and express and within the emotional intimacy of relationships there are often a lot of heightened and complicated feelings.
Besides this, people often have relationship difficulties due to childhood experiences. For example, people who have experienced neglect or abandonment in childhood, understandably, may be hesitant about trusting another person in an intimate, committed relationship.
Also a couple may be in difficulty because of an event - they may have had a miscarriage, job loss, affair, etc., which might have negatively impacted on the relationship.
Couple counselling provides a safe space in which difficulties can be aired and new ways of relating can be experimented with. The sessions usually last for 75 minutes and there is usually one session a week and this usually lasts for as many sessions as the couple needs. The sessions cost £100.
