Relationship Counselling & Marriage Guidance Near Ashford, Kent
Sian Jones - Ashford Practice

I am a fully qualified counsellor and CBT therapist with a BSC (hons) in Psychology. I have seven years’ experience working full time as a couple therapist with a proven track record of successfully helping couples achieve where they want to get to.

I offer a step by step, warm, non-judgemental, common sense approach to Relationship Counselling, by encouraging couples to work through their problems together. When gently asked the relevant questions it enables individual’s to open up and explain what isn’t working in the relationship from their perspective and why. In turn, this allows their partner the opportunity to really listen and try understand their partner’s point of view.

It’s not necessarily about trying to get couples to agree, nor is about attributing blame; it’s about gaining understanding. Experience has shown, that when the understanding from both parties is achieved, it goes a long way in removing any hurt, resentment or anger that may have built up over the years. This allows couples to move forward more positively, in whichever way they choose.

The feedback I receive is that I have an exceptional ability to make couples feel quickly at ease. When people feel comfortable and relaxed it is much easier to communicate and open-up. I won’t sit there silently waiting for you to speak, but I will however, take an active part in conversation and in the process of recovery and change.

Sabine Hawkins - Canterbury & Birchington Practice

I feel it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help when you need it. Life can be challenging and tough at times. I am a BACP registered therapist and I provide a confidential and safe environment in which we will work together through your relationship issues and difficulties.

Many things can affect relationships including a stressful lifestyle, negative behaviour patterns, poor communication and external influences. It is important that both of you feels heard and understood so that we can get a better understanding of what you are experiencing and look at what possible choices and changes can be made in order to improve and strengthen your relationship.

Tanya Thompson - Herne Bay Practice

I am a UKCP Registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist with extensive experience working within the NHS and private practice, working with individuals, couples and families.

Couples therapy provides an opportunity to work through relationship difficulties and to explore the origin of the conflicts we might be facing. Often we can find ourselves in trouble when negative repetitive patterns of relating develop, and we feel stuck in certain dynamics not knowing how to bring about change.

As an experienced therapist I am warm, non-judgmental and able to provide a supportive and safe space for these difficulties to be named, processed and worked through. Often problematic modes of communication surface within the context of therapy, in both the content of what we say, how we say it, but also in just how we are with each other.  As an objective other I am well placed to be able to recognise these relationship patterns as they surface in our work together.

Within the therapy we will consider both individual difficulties but also what is being played out between the couple, and to sensitively help you to think about more useful ways of communicating your needs effectively. Feeling heard and understood results in improvements in personal relationships and how you feel about yourself, and self in relation to others. This should result in your relationship developing, becoming stronger and ultimately more fulfilling.

Laura Mc Carthy - Ramsgate Practice

I am a fully qualified, experienced, warm, approachable psychotherapeutic counsellor, with a background in transactional analysis.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and supportive environment to help couples communicate better and improve their understanding of the issues within their relationship.

When I work with couples, I seek to uncover repeated negative patterns in their relationship, look for ‘stuck points’ and understand points of difference. By becoming aware of how they relate, couples who work with me can become conscious of their part in what goes wrong, allowing them the opportunity to choose to do things differently to make the relationship stronger and happier.

I don’t believe in one size fits all approach and will tailor the sessions to meet your individual needs.
