Relationship Counselling

How can counselling help?

You may feel unhappy or frustrated with certain aspects of your relationship but can’t seem to alter things no matter how hard you try to communicate.

Relationship counselling can help – whatever your sexual orientation, background, or marital status – whether you come alone or with a partner. Talking to one of our counsellors can help you to think about issues in different ways and then begin to make changes that can seem so daunting.

Each counselling session lasts 50 minutes. The initial session is an assessment session, allowing you to talk about the problems and for the counsellor to think about how they may help you. If ongoing counselling is appropriate, there is an agreement to continue the work at a regular time that suits everyone. We aim to provide a flexible service tailored to the specific needs of each client and which is sensitive to the particular issues.

Couples do not only come to therapy when their relationship is in crisis. Relationship therapy can help to re-energise and revitalise a relationship.

Separation and Divorce

Relationship counselling is also suitable for couples considering separation or divorce. We offer support and understanding through this difficult process so that each partner can let go of some of the hurt and resentment and start to rebuild their lives.

Coupleworks counsellors help parents navigate towards a positive family change.

Problems that can be helped by relationship counselling:  
  • conflicts and anger
  • poor communication
  • affairs
  • sexual difficulties
  • uncertainty about commitment
  • mental health
  • life transitions
  • fertility issues
  • starting a family

Motherhood, Guilt and Self-care

Physical closeness outside of our bubbles is something that many of us have been missing during the lockdowns and pleas for social distancing over the past year.  For me so much of what that has meant is encapsulated in the title of a book that I have been...
