How do we know if we need relationship counselling?
Perhaps your arguments have reached such a level that you barely speak or perhaps have stopped talking altogether. Leaving you in a stalemate situation. With the help of a relationship therapist you can learn how to communicate more effectively and get your relationship back on track.
When there is negativity in a relationship, one or both parties can feel judged or criticised. It’s not only negative words that cause problems but also the tone of the conversation. Our couple counsellors are always explaining to couples. “It isn’t necessarily about what you are saying but how you are saying it”.
When relationships start to breakdown, couples can feel hurt, anger and resentment, which can lead to one or both parties withholding any form of affection. This is often demonstrated by giving the silent treatment to the other.
Seeing your partner as the enemy
If you feel that you and your partner are just not on the same page anymore. You are on different sides and it feels like a battle you both want to win. Then it’s the right time to seek couple therapy.
Considering an affair
Are you fantasising about what it might be like with somebody else? Do you find yourself enjoying the attention of somebody else? Are you sending texts to someone else that you wouldn’t want your partner to see?
This is a signal that something is very wrong. It is possible for a relationship to survive an affair, but it’s wise to seek professional help before that happens. If both of you are open to the therapy process and you are honest with yourself and your partner, the relationship can be saved.
Changes in sex life
Sex is a hierarchy of need in any relationship. It’s not unusual for sex to taper off after you have been together for a while. However, significant changes in the bedroom are signs that something is not right. An increase in sex can also be a warning sign.
Couples often wait until the rot has well and truly set in before the seek couple therapy. However, the sooner you nip problems in the bud, the sooner you will get your relationship back on track.

How many sessions will we need?
It is difficult to say how many sessions are required because every couple has different reasons for seeking online couple therapy. Some couples want to make their relationship work better. Some want help to separate and some couples are on different pages or aren’t quite sure what they want. However, rest assured, our relationship therapists will work hard to get you to where you want to be as quickly as possible; even if you are not quite sure where that is at the moment.

If you wish to cancel please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I want to change my booking time?
Please e-mail us at email@example.com and we will endeavour to change the time for you.
What if we feel if our relationship therapist is not right for us?
That is not a problem at all, not every therapist is right for every couple. You are not tied to going back to the same therapist if you feel for any reason that they are not quite right for you
Just drop us an e-mail or rebook directly online. We have a number of different therapists you can choose from.
What if my partner won't agree to having relationship therapy?
This is a common problem and it can be tricky because it is important that both parties are willing participants in order for the therapy to be successful.
The only advice we give is, that despite the fact that relationship counselling can be difficult at first, it does get easier. The avoiding and not talking about the problems in your relationship, doesn't make them go away. All that tends to happen is that they fester and get worse - potentially leading to the relationship ulitmately breaking down.
It is extremely rare for people to regret taking the decision to have relationship therapy, because it always gets you talking. More often than not couples wish they had done it months, if not years earlier.
