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.
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.
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.
We offer therapy both as in-person appointments from our City Wellbeing Centre (City of London) and online. If you need help deciding whether online therapy or in-person therapy is best for you, take a look at this helpful article.
Our aim is to make therapy accessible for everyone. We do this by offering a range of fees starting at £50 per session.
