About Me

Hello, I'm Nicola Foster and I offer couples counselling and relationship therapy. I specialise in intimacy and I'm a trained Psychosexual Therapist. Is sex an issue in your relationship? Professional, independent support can help you repair, heal and restore your bond. 

DO ANY OF THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?

Fear of intimacy

Mismatch in desire for sex / desire discrepancy

Navigating consensual non-monogamy (CNM)

Avoiding confrontation of any kind

Seeking affection or soothing outside of the relationship

Eroding trust / affairs / betrayal

As your counsellor, I will help you both to understand the unique dynamics in your relationship.

I'll ask you both to share your wants and needs as individuals, and to hear each others' requests.

I will support you to make new agreements about the areas where your needs are different.

We'll collaborate to look at the relationship dynamics and underlying issues, to help you both come to a new understanding of the patterns that keep you stuck. 

 

Then we work together to address relationship challenges through effort and good humour. Session by session,  we look at strategies to improve communication and understanding, to learn conflict resolution skills, and to deepen intimacy.

 

It's really important to me to be kind and genuine, and to create as safe as possible space for everyone.

 

My aim is to provide you with positive, actionable strategies that give your relationship the best chance to not only survive, but thrive.

 

I also support individuals:

  • Recovering from a break up
