Why have sessions online?

I understand that time and circumstances, may prevent you from being able to access the right therapist to get the help you need. I don't want you to feel that you are cut off, or that you don't have the same access to therapy that others do.

There may be a number of reasons that having online sessions is the right choice for you


Here's what my clients say about online sessions:


  • It makes more sense to save money on traveling costs
  • I can't find anyone in my area who has the same level of experience and expertise as you

  • It's hard to get a babysitter on a regular basis
  • It saves me money on babysitting fees

  • I get panic attacks and find it hard to get out

  • I work long hours, so I don't have the time to travel to you

  • I work long hours and need someone who can see me online in the evenings

  • You're an expat too - you understand my needs as an expat

  • I live in a remote place

  • I want someone who speaks English

  • I don't drive

  • The public transport in my area is not good

  • I am offshore on a yacht, boat, ship

  • I'm just an online sort of a person



My online clients like to use:

  • Skype
  • Zoom
  • Facetime
  • WhatsApp Video
  • Facebook Video

Overcome Anger in Your Relationship

​If so you're not alone. Many couples ​end up down this path of negativity, power struggles and frustration. 

​They tell me.

​'We keep arguing. We can't seem to stop.'

'Nothing ever gets resolved, we go around in circles.'

'We keep lashing out at each other'

​​​'There’s a lot of hurt, pain and miscommunication.'

THE GOOD NEWS

The good news is that it is perfectly possible to find your way back to the loving, happy peaceful and secure relationship you once had.

I've helped thousands of couples get to the root of their anger, resolve issues and find ways to communicate more effectively so they can move forward to a ​healthier relationship.


RESTORE THE PEACE

​Is ​a ​Professional Couple's Therapy Program

​Developed From over 25 Years helping People Gain More Confidence, learn communication skills and create Happier Relationships

Counselling and Therapy Lagos Algarve Portugal

​Why this ​m​ethod works so well

You may have had one-to-one sessions in the past which have helped at the time. But then later you’ve come back around to your issues. Things never get fully resolved because you weren't given the right practical tools and resources to help you effectively apply what you learnt in those sessions​

OR

You may have found your own tools​ and resources to help with your relationship ​issues. However you've never had the full attention of a therapist ​to help you understand and process those issues, and ​to show you how to ​effectively apply ​those tools and resources to your personal relationship

​In many years helping ​clients, I have found that combining ​sessions with effective tools and resources is most effective. In this way you can take what we have covered in your sessions and you can ​apply it to your relationship in ​ways that work and will last.

​This is absolutely the best way forward. It is why I have developed this program; to help you get the best possible outcome for your relationship. And, because I love what I do!

The homework was invaluable

We were going around in circles. We had had sessions a few years ago but we were back to the same problems. The worksheets and videos really helped us take what we had recognised in our sessions and put new ways of communicating into proper practice. We now have skills we never had before. Thank you

Meet Marléne​

Hi, I'm Marléne Rose Shaw; therapist, coach and self-help author. Over the past 25 years, I’ve been privileged to help thousands of people.  

I’m passionate about helping people overcome the blocks that have been keeping them stuck and unhappy, sometimes for decades, so that they are free to become the creators of their own destinies.


Reconnect

Bring the Love Back

Have you lost the intimate connection you once had?

Are you having the same old arguments, going around in circles  - nothing gets resolved?

​Do you feel lost, stuck and frustrated that you’re not being heard​?

If so you're not alone. Many couples ​wish they could find their way back to the secure, happier, intimate relationship they once had

​They tell me.

'We ​don't have the connection we once had'

'We keep arguing. We cant seem to stop.'

'Nothing ever gets resolved, we go around in circles.'

'I keep trying to get my point across, but ​I get accused of moaning. It's like talking to a brick wall.​'

​'It's hard to have physical contact ​when we're not emotionally intimate.'

THE GOOD NEWS

The good news is that it is perfectly possible to find your way back to the loving connection and emotional intimacy that you once had.

I've helped thousands of couples rediscover ​​a ​happy, secure and inspired relationship. No matter how long things have been ​difficult in your relationship, ​ even if for many years; it is still possible to ​​bring back the connection you once enjoyed so much.

Marlene is a professional and supportive therapist who has helped me understand how to manage my life priorities, deal with my problems and I had tried a number of 'therapies' over a period of 20 years and it was not until I met with Marlene and read her book 'Out of Fear and Into Love' that I started to live happily again. Her gentle and professional approach assured me she was listening and understood what I could do to get my life back on track. Marlene is an excellent therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone who has any problem from a simple 'I don't know what is the best option' life decision to more complex problems such as depression and anxiety.

Marléne really helped me…..

When I first went to see Marléne, I was in a place of mental isolation, suffering from severe panic attacks and great anxiety, which at its worst changed me from a very open, life-loving person, into an agoraphobic, who hardly ever ventured out. Marléne really helped me through that difficult, and harrowing time. With her help, and some positive life changes, I am now back to my life-loving self, with a few cognitive tools from the sessions with Marlene, that help keep my thoughts and emotions in check.
