Jim offers a unique service, with high-value added features which are not part of standard counselling services. Here is a brief description of his Enhanced Main Service:

Main Couples Therapy Service (Updated on 15th April 2022)

My New, Enhanced, Main Service – (February 2022 onwards) – involves:

1 – Formal assessment questionnaires (to collect relevant data about some potential sources of your relationship problem[s]. Normally between four and seven questionnaires will be sent to you; and perhaps some supplementary questions once I’ve seen your answers);

2 – A counselling meeting – (face-to-face in a hotel meeting room near Kings Cross) – of up to sixty minutes (which is mainly more assessment, at our first meeting. If you opt for a second meeting, then we will get to do more therapy than assessment during the second meeting);

3 – An analytical report – (about the assessment results and my learning from our meeting) – which I will send to you within three or four days of our meeting;

4 – And this is followed by five to seven informational documents (called psycho-educational [or bibliotherapy] handouts), which will teach you the knowledge and skills you need in order to begin to resolve your relationship problem(s). These documents will be sent to you at four or five day intervals, over a period of 28-30 days, normally.

Those four elements, above, are, collectively, called a “single package” of my Enhanced Main Service; and I normally recommend that you sign up for a “double package”, which involves repeating the above processes again, (with a twenty-eight day interval between our two meetings) – but with more time for therapy during our second meeting.

You can repeat this process as often as you need to. I estimate that close to 50% of people will only need a single package (for each partner) to resolve their problems. Some will require a double package. And some will need multiple packages, depending on the complexity and difficulty of their problems.

Blue logo Dr Jim ByrneCosts: Officially £900.00: With effect from Monday 7th March 2022: A “single package” of this service (in North London) will cost you just £750.00 GBP (during March, April and May 2022), which represents a saving of £150.00 per package.

A “double package” (officially £1,800) will cost you just £1,200.00 GBP – when booked as a double package. (Two single packages will currently cost you £1,500.00 GBP, so booking a double package will save you £300.00.) Offer must end by 31st May 2022.

The main benefits that you will gain from this service include the following:

– A much clearer idea of what is going wrong in your marriage or couple relationship (based on formal and informal assessment by a highly experienced professional);

– A better understanding of your own contribution to your relationship problems; and how to change for the better; and:

– Well-written teaching documents which are designed to make sure you not only understand love and relationships, but that you can deploy effective skills in areas such as:

# creating for your partner the experience that they are loved; that they are understood; that they are cared for and respected; and:

# developing a sense of secure attachment within yourself; strong personal boundaries; and a win-win approach to every aspect of your most important relationship(s). Resulting in better health and happiness for you both.

– And a growing feeling of happiness and relaxation in your ever-rewarding relationship!

Here are some messages I (Jim) received from former clients, about what they gained from working with me on their relationships:

♣ “Hello Jim. Thank you for your report and analysis of my relationship with Jane. (Not her real name – JB). Your insights and analysis are already helping us to understand ourselves and the way we’ve been relating to each other, which is making a difference. I feel confident that this will help us to create a stronger relationship”.

T.C., Crag Vale, Calderdale, West Yorkshire. (One session of my main service for couple conflict problems).

~~~

♣ “Good Morning Jim, I hope you and your wife are keeping well in these challenging times.  I wanted to drop you a line to give you some great news.  Frank and I have had a real break-through in our relationship.  He recently began to demonstrate his love for me in ways that had not happened for years. I was blown away! So here is my big thank you, and I will always be grateful to you for your great guidance and therapy.

K.D., Calderdale, West Yorkshire. (Four sessions of couples therapy).

~~~

♣ “Hi Jim, Just a quick line to let you know that your work is lasting and I’m still so glad I found you to help me. Hope you are well! It must be more than 15 years since you helped me to get out of a big emotional mess.

H.N., North Wales. (Several sessions of email and telephone counselling for a range of challenging emotional issues, including relationship problems).

I will then tailor a set of (4 to 7) questionnaires to send to you.

When you return your completed questionnaires, I will skim-read them, and, if necessary, ask you some supplementary questions.

Then we will negotiate the best meeting day/time for you, and I will send you a PayPal invoice, or my internet bank details, so you can pay your fee at least seven days before our meeting date.

Once your fee has arrived, I will arrange to be in London, in a business meeting room, at the Pullman London St. Pancras Hotel, on Euston Road, NW1 2AJ; or the Megaro Hotel, Belgrove Street, WC1H 8AB – at the appointed time on the agreed on date.

Within 48 to 72 hours of our meeting, I will send you a report summarizing what happened in our meeting; plus a summary of my assessment of your questionnaire answers; and a list of psycho-educational resources – 5 to 7 documents – which will be sent to you at four or five day intervals over the following four weeks or so.

If you book a double package, our second meeting will normally be set for 5 weeks after our first meeting.

E.S., North Wales. (Three sessions of telephone counselling for relationship problems and anger management issues).

Blue logo Dr Jim Byrne♣ “Dear Jim, I’ve been using the techniques you taught me, to calm my body and mind. This makes it easier to resist clinging to Ryan, when my insecurity alarm goes off! (Ryan is not his real name! JB) I’m practicing being more independent, and “standing in love”, as you say. I feel you have woken me up from years of bad habits which were spoiling my marriage. You are a wise and kind man, and I thank you for that”.

G.N., Rochdale, Lancashire. (One session of my main service).

♣ “Hello Jim, I feel so much better since I’ve been consulting you. Most of my main problems – from relationship insecurity to assertive communication – have cleared up. Some of my biggest worries have simply dissolved”.

M.H., Preston, Lancs. (Four sessions of Skype counselling for a range of attachment and relationship issues).

Blue logo Dr Jim Byrne♣ “Hi Jim, I hope you are well. You may remember me, even though it’s more than six years since we worked on my problems together. We worked on a range of problems that were destroying my happiness and my relationships with women. After that work, I moved forward with gusto, into a much better place. I changed my business; met a wonderful woman and fell in love. We are very happy together, and business is good. The therapy processes that you taught to me have served me well. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your wonderful, skilful support and teaching. I wish you and yours all the happiness and health in the world.

E.F., Sardinia. Previously based in Bradford, West Yorkshire. (Six sessions of face-to-face counselling, including ‘Cutting the Ties from Childhood Parents’).

~~~

♣ “Thanks so much Jim for all the work you put in to help me resolve my conflict with Frank (not his real name! JB). Your expert knowledge and ‘courage coaching’ helped me to put up the boundary that should have been there for years. Now I feel so much less anxious and stressed by all the crisis management of the past year.

L.C., Rochdale, Lancs. (One session of my median service for family conflict).
