If I am working with you as an individual we will together seek to establish the conflicts that are causing you difficulty and look for ways in which you find might a resolution. If you are a couple we will be meeting to establish the dynamic that is created by you being in the relationship and work together to see what you can both do to try and ensure your relationship becomes happier, healthier and more fulfilling".
