Our mental health is every bit as important as our physical health and deserves just as much care and attention.
What is Couples Counselling?
Couples Counselling can be helpful for any two people who have a relationship together, and while this often means two people who are married, in a civil partnership or other similar arrangement, where two people are in relationship together.
Couples Counselling provides a safe and confidential space for two people to talk together with a trained professional about the problems they are experiencing within their relationship. It differs from individual counselling where the focus is on the individual and focuses instead on the relationship happening between the couple.
There are many reasons why a couples’ relationship may be facing difficulties, however it is not necessary to be at breaking point before seeking the support of a couples’ counsellor. Indeed, many couples seek counselling to prevent their relationship from reaching breaking point.
Some of the difficulties couples may be facing might include:
Difficulties, or a breakdown, in communication
Differing views of roles within the relationship
Loss of trust
Changing life goals
Differing parenting expectations
As with individual counselling and psychotherapy there is no limit to what can be talked about in couples counselling, however some difficulties may need a therapist with specialist training or experience. We can discuss this if it applies when you contact me.
Most couples who attend counselling do so because they are looking for healthier ways of relating to each other in order to improve their relationship. Together they can learn both how to talk with, and listen to, their partner and find ways to improve their relationship in a way that works for them.
For some couples it might be that couples counselling means they decide that separation is the best way forward for them, so that they then work towards a more positive ending of the relationship.
Appointments and Fees:
The fee for Couples Counselling is £60/hour.
I currently see couples who want support with their relationship both online via zoom (if Cottingham is too far) and face to face.
Due to space restrictions at The Burrow clients wanting couples therapy are seen in rooms on Princes Avenue, Hull. Appointments are available on Thursdays 9-4pm, or Saturday morning 9-1 pm.
The office is situated on the first floor of the building and unfortunately does not have wheel chair access.
To arrange to speak to me and/or to book an appointment, please contact me via the contact form, or by leaving a message on my phone: 07598 237236. I aim to respond to messages within 24 hours.
