Many relationships experience difficulties from time to time. Sometimes, couples feel unable to resolve their issues alone and seek help in the form of couples counselling. At The Horsforth Centre, we provide couples counselling for people who would like some help in finding a way forward.
The purpose of couples counselling is to restore a healthy level of communication and functioning for couples experiencing distress in their relationship. Whether married or not, many couples have difficulties, be this due to financial pressure, sexual problems, anger, illness, bereavement, affairs, or a breakdown in communication.
Sometimes, couples feel unable to resolve their difficulties alone and seek outside help in the form of couples counselling. Often, one or both partners may find it difficult to feel heard within the relationship, leading to feelings of loneliness and isolation. Couples counselling can help each partner express their thoughts, feelings and wishes within a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment.
Occasionally, couples who are separating come for couples counselling to resolve issues so that they can continue to coexist without continued difficulty. This can be very useful when couples have children together and will remain in contact with each other.
Here at The Horsforth Centre, we endeavour to provide a caring and supportive setting to help you explore the issues causing you concern. Couples counselling can be really positive and can facilitate the development of the relationship toward a desired level of functioning and communication.
How many sessions will you need?
The number of sessions required depends very much on the problems you're facing. Your therapist will work with you to decide together how many sessions you think are necessary and progress will be reviewed at regular intervals.
