We're here to help with couples therapy

We can all experience difficulties in our relationships from time to time.

When we feel stuck with conflicts, misunderstandings or other problems and can’t find a way out of this ourselves, then we need some help. Couples therapy will give you a safe and protected setting where you can work with your therapist to explore your situation, and find new ways of thinking about and resolving the problems you and your partner are experiencing.

How can couples therapy help me with my relationship?

At Tavistock Relationships we provide regular weekly sessions which will offer you a chance to explore some of the issues that may be concerning you.

The first step is an initial consultation with one of our therapists who will think with you about what is worrying you, and help you to find new ways of understanding and making sense of your difficulties.

You can choose to come with your partner or on your own. At your first meeting with us, you will be able to talk through any concerns and ask any questions you might have about what coming to therapy will entail.

If you and your therapist decide that ongoing couple therapy is likely to be helpful for you, we will offer you a regular weekly appointment with a therapist matched with your needs.

How to book a couples therapy appointment

Appointments are available to book via our online booking system.

Our aim is to make therapy accessible for everyone. We do this by offering a range of fees and offering appointments both online and in person from our centre in central London.  

We are able to offer high quality therapy at affordable prices by working with therapists undertaking advanced training as part of their postgraduate professional development. Clients paying less then our standard rate of £100 will usually be seen by a trainee.

Clients within our Direct Booking service, or paying over our standard fees if being seen within our Main Clinical Service (pay what you can afford service), will be seen by a qualified therapist.

We currently have vacancies available to see a trainee for low fee therapy at £45 per week. Eligibility criteria apply.

The work involved in couple therapy and the breakthroughs it can lead to

“You have to be real. Feelings need to be expressed and felt.”

What if my partner doesn't want to attend? 

Our therapists are trained to work with both couples and individuals and we see lots of people on their own.

Sometimes it's because their partner doesn't wish to attend. On the other hand, it is a lot easier to sort out relationship problems if you both come, so we will encourage you to encourage them.

We also help individuals who may not currently be in a relationship. It may be your relationship has recently broken down or that you have felt that you have had a series of relationships that you have been unsure have been right in some way or another.

Between Us, our relationship support app

We also offer Between Us, an app designed to help you have a better relationship with your partner now or in the future. It is free to download but, if you are able, you can give a donation to help us make our services available others.

The app provides excercises, tips, videos and useful information that can help you understand better the difficulties you may be facing in your relationship.
