Ros Welch is located in the beautiful village of Haddenham in Buckinghamshire, convenient for Bicester.
One of the areas I specialise in is “Couple Counselling”. The following is an extract from a recent article of mine.
There are many tasks in the reconstruction of a relationship having had trust damaged by an affair to which the counsellor can bring focus and structure. Ensuring that the couple feel equally heard, that the betrayed party has been able to verbalise and process their pain and that their partner recognises the depth of damage caused. The counsellor can help the couple remember what brought them together, how they fell in love, reconnecting them in joint recollection, allowing them to see what is at stake and cement their determination to work through this crisis.
The counsellor can explore their conflict resolution styles, seeking examples of previously resolved conflict to provide insight for the work ahead. The couple need to understand why the affair happened and gain a holistic view of their relationship prior to the affair, recognising stressors and triggers that led to the betrayal. Commonly the prelude to an affair is of one party feeling neglect and lack of attention from the other feeling emotionally vulnerable, this could arise from work or financial pressures, the birth of a child, caring for a relative or a bereavement.

Together we identify goals with realistic outcomes in acceptable timescales. We work positively to make a lasting difference to accept the past, make change in the present, and enhance the future.
Unexpected change can be difficult to manage, it can be hard to think straight given the busy lives we lead, trying to make sense of the unpredictable can leave us anxious, stressed and angry. Life’s changes; redundancy, bereavement, loss, illness or broken relationships can leave us in tatters and Counselling can help you on your journey to acceptance.
“It was very easy to talk to Ros, the sessions were relaxed and comfortable, I felt really heard. She often challenged me and my ideas, I felt I learnt something at every session, I gained insight and self- awareness, it was like a layer of skin being peeled from my eyes.”
“I had always suffered low self esteem and never knew why, Ros was the 1st person who understood, she helped me see things from a different perspective. I feel confident and look forward to my future.”
Following a successful career in design, marketing and finance, following a series of life-changing events I became inspired me, now in my 50’s, to channel my experiences into helping others as a counsellor.
