Do couples therapists (clinicians) have special training?

Yes. Tavistock Relationships is a centre of excellence for accredited training and research in couple relationships.

Our counsellors and psychotherapists bring a wealth of clinical experience from a variety of related settings including social work and clinical psychology, and many have experience in working with individuals as well as couples.

Our clinicians undertake a very rigorous training, with substantial further supervised practice. This represents the highest standards of professional training in counselling and psychotherapy with couples, in the UK and beyond. As part of our commitment to professional development you may be seen by a trainee psychotherapist or counsellor working under specialist supervision.
