Where does it start?

Our work with you starts with an initial consultation with a counsellor or psychotherapist.

At your initial consultation, we seek to understand the issues that concern you most and couple psychotherapy may be the outcome of the consultation process.  If we are able to offer you the help you need at this point in any of our specialist services, we will allocate you a regular weekly slot for therapy with a therapist matched with your needs.

Therapy is a process where you can air what most concerns you in a safe and confidential setting, and the therapist can help you unpack the problems, which may relate to recent events, or something more long-standing. Your therapist may also ask questions to clarify what you have described. Over time you may then be able to reflect in depth on the issues and see them from a different perspective, which will be beneficial to your relationships and help you feel less stuck.

When you aren’t getting along with your partner, it can often feel very challenging. You both may have the same take on the nature of the difficulties, or you might have very different ideas. Whatever the situation, the therapist is there to listen and help you explore the substance underneath the initial problem that brings you in, so that eventually you can come to a richer understanding of what the issues are and how you might each move forward.

If you are having difficulties in your relationship, please contact us today.

How the counselling process works

Counselling and couple therapy can help people understand why their relationship is in distress or why they feel distant from their partner. It can clarify, for example, why both halves of a relationship might be feeling under stress or that the lines of communication have broken down.
