More about Couples Therapy

Couples counselling is a form of talking therapy that aims to improve communication and resolve issues within an intimate relationship.  Very few relationships exist conflict-free and staying together through life's twists and turns is rarely simple. When our most important relationship hits problems, our health and happiness often suffers and it is at this point that seeking outside help can be incredibly useful. However, many couples use therapy sessions as a way to keep their relationship healthy and to explore any worries that may become conflicts in the future.

Talking to a trained counsellor or therapist who is impartial, yet empathic, can be all it takes for you to gain perspective as they guide you through your concerns. The overall aim is to help you understand how various external factors can affect your relationship; consider the past and how it impacts in the present; communicate together in a more constructive way; understand why arguments escalate; negotiate and resolve conflicts where possible.

As your counselling sessions progress, you and your partner may find a way of overcoming your problems, or you may decide it is time to both go your own way. Either way, counselling will offer you the space to grow and decide what you would like the future to hold for both of you.
