I Believe

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. - Rumi

About Ian Tomlinson

I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist and Advanced Imago Relationship Therapist working with individuals and couples at my office in Cheadle, Cheshire and worldwide via zoom.

My Couples Work

Has your relationship lost its passion?  Are you unsure if you should work through your issues or separate?

Maybe one of you has had an affair or lost faith in your partner all together.  

There is hope.

I help people who feel stuck in their relationship get back into connection.  

As an advanced Clinician in Imago Relationship Therapy, I believe that conflict in your relationship is normal; It’s growth trying to happen.

I teach couples to communicate with each other on a deeper level, opening up the possibility of a close connection, even when things have been difficult in the past.

I work with couples to identify what they want their ideal relationship to look like, and then I help them realise this vision.

Working With Individuals

Besides my couples’ work, I help individuals manage their anxiety, stress, depression or relationship issues and get back into their lives.

When we hit a roadblock in life, it’s easy to do things that help us get rid of difficult feelings and thoughts which often make the problem worse in the long run.  

Work with me to identify what you want your life to mean. I’ll help you step out of unproductive behaviours and flourish once more.

I’m also very interested in issues that men face in their lives.  

Us men can often struggle to talk about what’s troubling us and get trapped in a culture where expressing our feelings is frowned upon.  This causes us many problems and explains why suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 in the UK.

I’ll support you to express your feelings in a way that feels safe.
