Couples Counselling

Couples counselling (also known as relationship therapy*) is a talking therapy which allows you to identify negative behaviours which can be changed in order to improve your relationship or marriage. The aim of this type of therapy is to help you and your partner gain a better understanding of negative patterns within the relationship. Couples counselling can provide you with new tools and perspectives to improve your relationship. Our counsellors create a compassionate space where couples feel heard and understood.

With couples counselling, we can help you find a way to work through your difficulties and find solutions. Typically, clients at London Couples Clinic have between 10 – 20 appointments on a regular basis and some clients continue for longer. Appointments are 50 minutes long. 

*Also called Couples Therapy and Marriage Help


Thank you so much for helping us through this tough period


Do we need couples counselling?

Many couples will take a long time to recognize and acknowledge problems in their relationship or marriage. There may not be a major crisis but you drift along for years without anything getting better.

For other couples, there are significant events which puts stress on your relationship or marriage. Examples of these events could include a new baby, financial problems, serious illness, discovery of an affair etc.

Lots of people think that you only need relationship therapy when things get really bad. But we’re here whenever you need us. No matter the stage of your relationship. No matter what situation you face in your relationship or marriage. With couples therapy, we can support you in finding effective solutions for the difficulties you are facing.

What are the benefits of relationship therapy?
