Relationship counselling for couples in London

Relationship therapy, or couples counselling, provides a safe space for couples to discuss their issues and find solutions to problems within their relationship.

Close relationships bring many rewards but they are also challenging. Learning how to resolve conflicts and get through difficult times together is a key part of couples counselling.

Our couples therapists won’t push you towards staying together or separating. They will support you to make those decisions yourselves.

How might couples counselling help?

Many different issues can be brought to relationship therapy, including:

  • frequent or explosive arguments
  • indecision over whether to stay together or separate
  • wanting to separate with minimal hurt to each other or children
  • disagreements around parenting
  • abusive behaviour
  • sexual or intimacy issues 
  • conflicts over money
  • infidelity and affairs

Our relationship therapists will help you better understand the dynamics between you and your partner and recognise how these dynamics play out in your communication and behaviour together.

We work with straight, gay and bi couples, in long- and short-term relationships, whether monogamous or polyamorous.

If sexual issues are a major factor in your relationship, you may prefer to see one of our couples counsellors who is also qualified in psychosexual therapy.

Getting you both talking is the first step

Relationships are complicated and problems in relationships are often deeply rooted. For meaningful progress to be made, consistent weekly meetings with your therapist are necessary. Many couples rarely talk about their relationship. It can be hard to find the time. Committing to weekly couples therapy is a great way to prioritise your relationship.

You can end your therapy at any time just by letting your therapist know.

Working together with an experienced and unbiased couples therapist

As with personal therapy for individuals, your first appointment is an opportunity for you and your partner to discuss the problems within your relationship and what you want to get from therapy. Your couples counsellor will also address any questions or concerns you may have about couples counselling.

Our therapists remain neutral — we don’t take sides. We help by identifying and assessing behavioural patterns in a relationship and encouraging effective communication.

Issues within relationships are often personal, private and hard to talk about. Our couples therapists do not judge personal choices or sexual experiences. 

We’ve prepared a Guide to Couples Therapy that you may find helpful.

Need relationship or sexual issues therapy now?

Some of our couples counsellors are also qualified in psychosexual therapy. Psychosexual therapists can help with specific sexual issues such as loss of desire, painful sex or erectile problems. Please let us know if you would like to see one of our psychosexual therapists.

Couples counselling may be ongoing and open-ended, or time-limited to 10 sessions for those who prefer help in the short-term. Discussions during sessions are always confidential.

If you are having relationship problems and would like to explore how relationship therapy might help, phone 0333 207 9330 or get in touch to make a first appointment. We are here to help.

Relationship issues is one of the most common reasons for people to seek counselling.
