How Couples Counselling works?

As you might imagine, because of the added complexity, couples therapy requires a much higher level of skill from the therapist than that required in individual therapy; therefore, we do not use volunteer counsellors. All of our clinicians are highly trained, with several years experience and are professionally qualified psychotherapists (UKCP registered).

Using research-based principles, couples counselling can radically improve your relationship. It is not the differences between you and your partner that matter, but how you handle them.

Couples counselling focuses on helping you repair and enhance your couple relationship.

Initially, the three of us usually meet once a week. Please note that the therapist will not take sides or try to turn one partner against the other. Also, the therapist will not just sit back and listen passively.

The role of the therapist is to actively help you manage your issues in different and more helpful ways. Couples then often find it safer to let their guard down and speak honestly to each other with the therapist facilitating the process.

The therapist safely manages the meeting and helps you become aware of your communication patterns, your emotional reactions, their meaning and what psychological purposes they serve. 

The therapist will also try to deeply understand each persons point of view and assist you in helping your partner to understand too. 

The therapist will offer guidance and make suggestions to help you resolve conflicts and develop greater intimacy,

plus facilitate the development of new ways of

communicating and solving problems. Often between sessions tasks are suggested to help you practice the new ways.
