Relationship Counselling for Couples in London

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

Relationships are an essential part of our lives. Close relationships bring many rewards but they are also challenging. All relationships face challenges. How we deal with these challenges is important and plays a significant role in how we experience close personal relationships and in how we resolve conflicts when they arise.

How might couples counselling help?

There are many reasons why couples visit us for relationship therapy. Through encouraging communication and openness, our counselling services can be useful for couples who are:

  • having relationship problems and want to resolve these conflicts
  • facing the end of a relationship but hope to try to work things out
  • ending their relationship but want to end on good terms
  • experiencing sexual or intimacy issues within their relationship
  • about to make a long-term commitment but want to improve their relationship
  • individuals struggling with relationships and want to build better personal relationships in the future

Every couple is different. Our relationship therapists can help you recognise and understand the communication, behavioural, sexual and emotional dynamics that might exist between you and your partner. Couples counselling will explore how you and your partner relate to each other.

We have experience working with both straight, gay and bi couples in London, in long and shorter-term relationships, whether monogamous or polyamorous, and with those experiencing sexual or intimacy issues within their relationship. We employ specialist psychosexual therapists for those facing specific sexual issues.

Couples therapy requires a weekly commitment

Relationships are complicated and problems in relationships are often deeply rooted. For both partners in a couple to get the most out of therapy, consistent weekly meetings with your couples therapist are necessary. This is how therapy works.

We don’t offer fortnightly or monthly couples therapy. You will need to meet with your therapist every week until your therapy reaches its end. And you can end your therapy at any time just by letting your therapist know.

Client Testimonials

Working together with an experienced and unbiased couples therapist

As with individual therapy, your first appointment will provide an opportunity for you and your partner to discuss any problems within your relationship, identify any goals for therapy and begin a dialogue of open communication. People often have questions about how counselling might help and we can address any concerns you may have about therapy at this first meeting.

Our therapists remain neutral — we don’t take sides. We help by identifying and assessing behavioural patterns in a relationship and through encouraging fair, balanced communication between both partners.

We understand that issues within relationships are often very private and personal. Our couples therapists do not judge personal choices or sexual experiences. We’ve prepared a Guide to Couples Therapy that may be useful.

You might have other questions about how couples counselling might work. We have also put together some additional information on relationship issues that might be helpful. Our couples counselling fee information might also be useful to you to consider.

We employ couples counsellors for issues within personal relationships, as well as specialist psychosexual therapists for sexual or intimacy problems. Please let us know if you feel you might benefit from meeting with one of our psychosexual therapists.

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.

Problems within relationships is one of the most common reasons that people seek counselling.
