Relationship Counselling Hook

I'm currently unavailable.
Please contact another counsellor on this website.

Welcome. My name is Irene, counsellor in Hook.


Do you long for a more contented life and relationship, one with more meaning?


In a warm and confidential space, I can help you to acknowledge and unblock the disharmony in your life and relationship.


Talking therapy allows you to become more self aware, you begin to have a greater insight into your patterns of behaviour in relationships, you have a more positive outlook and often, clients report, an increased resilience to cope with life’s challenges.


I work with individuals and couples with a wide range of issues including anxiety, low self-worth, self-esteem, depression, couples in conflict, bereavement, loss and many others.



Couples counselling

With couples, I aim to facilitate an understanding of the conflicts that have arisen and will explore what your hopes are from the counselling process.


Whether you want to understand your partner better, express anger safely, be more equipped to use your voice and ask for what you need or to hear what may be going on for your partner, it can be helpful to clear the air and to identify what is causing the relationship difficulties.


Some couples will have different views and answers to these questions, so honesty can be an important part of the process. 


Separate individual sessions can be arranged if this is deemed helpful and these can be useful to understand where some of the issues may have originated from.


Sessions are offered in blocks with the option of ad-hoc sessions to check in after the main period of counselling has ended. Couples may be asked to put into practice techniques between sessions.
