Couples counselling offers an opportunity to help you and your partner identify the conflict issues within your relationship. It will help you decide what changes are needed in the relationship and in the behaviour of each partner. Couples counselling will help both of you to feel satisfied with the relationship, and give you a platform to enjoy life and each other again.
Benefits of Couples Counselling
- You can talk candidly about all aspects of your relationship in a safe environment
- You will gain confidence in expressing your needs and wants to each other
- You will learn to negotiate and compromise with each other for mutual benefit
- You will learn to understand what is keeping you stuck, and discover ways of moving forward
- You will help to ease the stress and tension between the both of you in your relationship
- You will identify common life goals and work out how you can achieve them together
Accepting that there are difficulties, small or large, in your relationship or marriage is often hard to come to terms with. By seeking support you might feel that you have failed in some way. When couples come for counselling, some feel nervous, apprehensive and unsure of what to expect. But actually counselling offers a good opportunity to really look at the dynamics of your relationship. When both parties are committed, couples counselling can help to heal and improve a relationship. Couples counselling works by identifying the issues and starting the healing process through supported communication in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
Is Couples Counselling Right for You?
- Are you unhappy and feeling lonely in your relationship?
- Do you argue about the same things over and over with no resolution?
- Are there issues around infidelity?
- Have you stopped being intimate with each other?
- Have you suffered a loss that you are both finding difficult to come to terms with?
If you have answered “yes” to any of the above questions and you want to enjoy a more satisfying relationship, I can help you!
If your partner does not want to attend, or you prefer to work on your relationship on an individual basis, then relationship counselling may be a more suitable option.

Why I Can Help You
I am a BACP accredited relationship counsellor and for over 20 years I have been helping couples who have experienced relationship difficulties.
I know from experience, couples come in all “shapes and sizes” and can go on to enjoy satisfying and fulfilling relationships.
As a British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) registered and accredited counsellor, I adhere to BACP codes of ethics and good practice.
You will always see one counsellor – me. I work in Hackney and Camden on a one-to-one basis with my clients so that they can form a trusting relationship in which to work through and discuss issues.
“Charmaine helped us look at the issues which were affecting our relationship and helped us to identify the reasons we came together in the first place.
“We got so much out of our first session, my partner was a bit apprehensive at first but we really valued the opportunity to speak candidly to one another and really hear each other’s points of views, without it ending up in yet another argument.”
Charges for Couples Counselling
Couples counselling costs £70 per session. Your first session is to help decide whether counselling is right for the both of you.
I recommend weekly sessions, as with experience I have found that this frequency offers clients the most benefits and lasting results.
