'When we have inner peace we can be at peace with those around us'
- Dalai Lama

Relationship Counselling can provide a safe place for couples to talk through their difficulties and have an opportunity to feel better understood by each other. Couples often find that they can talk about their problems without contradiction or interruption and without a 'fight' starting. Couples Counselling provides time away from home and work to explore difficulties in a confidential environment in which to clarify how you think feel and react. It can support couples to listen to, understand and learn more about each other. This in itself can enhance communication which improves the quality of the relationship. Through the process of counselling couples often reconnect to feelings of love, mutual respect and fun which they had previously enjoyed.

Couples come to Psychotherapy Plymouth with a range of issues including:

Breakdown in communication
Sexual difficulties, difference or lack of desire, sexual problems.

'The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention'
- Oscar Wilde

Two people enter a relationship with their own values and beliefs and both must feel heard in order to thrive. This may mean developing new skills and learning to be open to new ways of thinking. Differences in any relationship need to be recognised and valued; otherwise one partner can feel unheard or invisible in the relationship. Therefore, if you want a great relationship the way you handle differences can often matter more than what the actual differences are.

Couples sometimes seek help at a time when separation or divorce seems to be the only option as the situation has become unbearable.

"If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance" - George Bernard Shaw

Couples Counselling can help explore whether trust can be repaired or the relationship will need to be rebuilt. Otherwise, it can support couples to separate with more skill, understanding and less hostility. This is particularly important if children are involved in the separation.

Couples Counselling can help couples take time out from everyday life and view their situation from a fresh perspective. It offers an opportunity to think about what they can do to change their situation for the better. It can also give couples the chance to discuss complex, sensitive or difficult issues in a safe and non-judgemental environment. During the sessions couples are actively encouraged to slow down, listen to the other's point of view and consider more effective ways to communicate which usually involve changes in behaviour and approach.

Couples counselling lasts for as long as you need it. Some couples come for a few sessions whilst others stay for several months. If you would like to book an initial session for couples counselling you can reach us via the number on this site or if you prefer, email info@psychotherapyplymouth.co.uk.
