Online Relationship Therapy
Hello, my name is Trish Mayne and I am a fully qualified ‘Relate’ trained couple counsellor, offering online relationship therapy for both couples and individuals.
For as long as I can remember I have had an interest in the way people communicate. Relationships are based around communication, whether that is with your partner, parents, children, colleagues and friends.
Our interaction with others can bring great joy and fulfilment. However, there are times when we all struggle with relationships. We change, others change and circumstances change. You and those around you can be left feeling confused and unhappy.
Maybe there is a relationship crisis in your life. It could be that your relationship is feeling unfulfilled. You may be unsure about the future together. You may want to prepare your relationship for a big life event you know is coming, such as becoming a parent or marriage. It can be very difficult to find a place where you feel as if someone is really listening to you. This is where I, as a Relationship counsellor, can help.
I began my career as a nurse within the NHS. This gave me the foundation to communicate with people of all ages when they were at their most vulnerable and needed support. I am also a qualified midwife and health visitor so I understand the physical and emotional changes that occurred when a couple were starting out as parents.
Personal expectations are challenged when a child comes into the family, and sometimes things are not as you were expecting them to be. I have been privileged to gain the trust of many people I have worked with. Many feel better knowing they don’t have to be perfect. It has been fulfilling to help people increase their self-belief and confidence.
I spent many years working with young parents, helping them to understand healthy relationships and have fulfilling attachments with their baby/ children. I have used my knowledge of child development and psychology along the way.
My work with Relate over a number of years has been both face to face and online. I have worked with couples seeking help for relational problems such as: Wider family conflict; intimacy issues; infidelity or affairs; the loss of romance or excitement; mental and physical ill health affecting the relationship – to name but a few.
I also have counselling work experience with couples where one partner has recently been released from prison, successfully helping them to re-establish their relationship with their partner and children.
I strongly believe that listening is the key to understanding and I feel my varied work expertise brings a rounded understanding of people of all ages, all walks of life and in all sorts of situations.
Online relationship therapy
I will give you respect understanding, empathy and support. Whether you come as a couple or an individual. I will bring a warm, relaxed approach which will put you at ease and I aim to give you a feeling of being in control during our work together.
Sometimes we lose the skill of listening and understanding to what our partner is saying. I will give you space to explore your thoughts and feelings and think about how this affects your relationship. You will need a space where there is equal time to think and speak.
My approach to your individual situation will be neutral and without judgement. Along the way, I may challenge you if appropriate, or offer the odd suggestion. I won’t attempt to ‘fix ‘your relationship or tell you want you should or shouldn’t be thinking or feeling. Instead, I will sit with you while you are trying to make sense of your experience.
I hope that you will end your counselling with me feeling you have more control and understanding of your relationship.
I subscribe and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework and undertake regular professional development and clinical supervision. I also have up to date professional indemnity insurance.
