Couples counselling, also known as marriage counselling/guidance or couples therapy, can help a couple to work through a wide range of issues presenting in their relationship. As a couples therapist in London, Beaconsfield and online, I work with couples who seek help for issues including improving communication, conflict management, improving intimacy, and rebuilding their relationship following an infidelity.
What is a Couples Therapist?
A couples therapist deals with issues that may be affecting your marriage or relationship. It is often difficult to take an objective stance and truly see one another’s perspectives when relationships are having difficulties. This can be further complicated by outside factors and opinions. By accessing couples psychotherapy with an independent person who specialises in couples work, the relationship and both parties can be supported in a safe environment to explore the difficulties with the knowledge that the support is impartial, confidential and qualified.
During couples therapy both of you are present and we work on any areas that are affecting the relationship.
What Does a Couples Therapist Do?
Like a relationship therapist or sex therapist, a couples therapist or counsellor can help with a range of problems and issues that might be affecting your marriage or relationship, utilising various approaches from psychotherapy. These include:
- Different needs / wants
- Problems with communication
- Cultural differences
- Children / families
- Growing apart
- Seeking help in separating
Online Couples Therapy
Alongside in-person couples therapy in London and Beaconsfield, I also offer ‘virtual’ or online sessions via Telehealth or Zoom. Online couples therapy can help you to understand your relationship dynamic, see your partner’s perspective, resolve problems, restore trust, improve communication skills and deepen your intimacy with your partner.
How Much is Couples Therapy?
