When do people engage in Couples Counselling and Marriage Counselling?
It is common for people in long term relationships to experience periods of difficulty. This is true of even the most well-suited couples. There are many reasons why this may be the case, such as bereavement, financial challenges, infidelity or stress.
However, challenges can also arise without warning and for seemingly no apparent reason. This can be due to a wide variety of reasons.
Making a mutual decision to come to couples counselling/marriage counselling together, is a commitment to one another. As such, it is often the first step towards understanding each other’s needs. It is a commitment to finding better and more effective ways of communicating with each other. We offer a safe, non-judgmental environment to discuss your thoughts, feelings and needs.
What sort of things can we work on in Marriage Counselling?
It can be common that one or other partners may engage in a period of one to one therapy. This is always a discussion point and is something that we can facilitate for you. We have a team of experienced and fully qualified counsellors available.
Common issues discussed in couples work include:
- Communication issues.
- Intimacy and trust.
- Domestic Violence and Abuse
- Pre-marital concerns and expectations.
- Loss of libido.
- Sexual Dysfunction e.g. Erectile Dysfunction, Vaginismus.
It is important to recognise that we are all individuals and will therefore all have different needs. Whatever your need just get in touch.

Most people at some point in their lives will become stressed. Or maybe you feel that life is generally getting on top of them.
Whereas family and friends can be great at lending a listening ear. Often it is important to speak to someone who offers a non-judgement and more professional approach. Someone who you know will hold whatever you say, with the utmost confidentiality.
