Marriage Counselling – Tiegan Holtham

Tiegan Holtham      Quals: BBSc (Hons), MPsych (Clin), MAPS       

Marriage counselling: Marriage can be the most rewarding and distressing relationship you will ever enter into! When people marry, they often aren’t expecting the many ways their relationship will change over time, and mismatched expectations can lead to relationships becoming conflictual, disjointed, unemotional and fractured. Feelings naturally fluctuate, but if they get out of balance, or become overly negative, it can become too distressing for the couple to manage on their own.  Blame, jealousy, dislike, affairs, and losing intimacy can all have a devastating effect on long term relationships. Seeking support from a couples therapist is a positive and effective step to moving past hurt and anger, and re-experiencing the joy and fulfilment of your earlier relationship.

Counselling Approach: Tiegan enjoys working with couples to rebuild their intimacy, love and enjoyment of one another. Tiegan uses a range of evidence based strategies with couples, including Gottman’s couples therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, skills training and compassion focused therapy. Tiegan works hard to ensure that neither member of the relationship feels blamed and acts as a neutral outsider to support both individuals to feel heard.
