Couple Sessions

Private sessions and bespoke retreats for couples

Sessions and private retreats are available for heterosexual and lesbian couples (either by Skype or in person) who would like more focused, in-depth personal support with their relationship. I have over 20 years experience working with relationship issues and I have a breadth of experiecne in the area’s of sexuality, communication, conflict and relationship breakdown.

We also offer sessions for individuals.

All couples have challenges within relationship and this is normal. What makes meeting those challenges harder is to navigate them alone. Along with the pressure  society puts on couples to pretend everything is going well. It can be hard to seek support as it’s easy to feel a sense of failure if things are not  as you hoped.

I have a wealth of experience in all areas of relationship such as sexuality, power dynamics, money conflict, communication difficulties and more. I am especially experienced with couples who feel on the edge of separation, in crisis or so stuck nothing can move or change. Or when you have been stuck for a while and constantly in conflict and just don’t know how to get through it. When things feel ‘dead’ and you’re just ticking along but not really connecting anymore.

I offer a safe, empathic and non judgemental space along with a wealth of tools gathered from over 20 years experience to support you both to come to true choices about what you want and then how to create that.

In my view, it is a wise couple who recognises the value of seeking guidance and support from outside the relationship, whether that relationship feels strong or challenging.

Different options
Below are session descriptions to see which best fits your needs. It’s also possible to create an option outisde of what is below, please contact the team if you want to discuss anything or enquire about booking. Please note than your initial enquiry will go to one of Jewels’ team.  

Face-to-face sessions all take place at the EarthHeart Centre in the Forest of Dean (easy to get to by car or public transport, typically a three-quarter hour journey from Bristol).  We have a number of options for couples, depending on your specific needs, which are shown below.

Breakthrough sessions

These are usually 3-4 hours and are helpful if you want to look at a particular issuse in your relationship and tackle it head on. An issue that maybe feels really stuck but you want to give it your full focus and intention to breakthrough the stuckness. This is also suitable if you have small children and cannot take more than a few hours away from family life.

One day intensives

These are designed to give enough space and time away from your life for to really work on the relationship. Maybe there is an issue that keeps arising over and over again and you just don’t seem to be able to move through it.

Two day bespoke retreats

These retreats are one of our most popular offerings for couples.
They are totally unique in the UK and quite different to going to regular therapy, couples’ counselling or to a couples’ workshop.

They give enough time toi really unpack and give indepth focus to the relationship and time to do the needed work to shift the stuck places. The retreats provide a held, safe, professional and confidential context. 

Some of the time during the retreat will be face to face and some of the time might be spent in the privacy of your bedroom exploring practices offered that directly support the issues you are working with. All set in the beautiful Forest and surrounded by wild and inspiring nature in which I encourage you to spend time to nourish the relationship.

£750 (including vat) per couple  Monday to Fridays
Arrive 2pm on the first day, end 2pm on the second day
(up to 10 hours in total)
(including accommodation in the self contained studio apartment in the forest.
