Here at Relationship Counselling Kent, our couple counsellors understand that it can feel like a big step deciding to come and talk to a relationship counsellor about the problems you are having in your relationship, especially as one of you might be resistant to attending.
During couple counselling sessions people often tell us that they feel they should be able to sort out their own problems. However, that isn’t easy when emotions run high, making it difficult to see the bigger picture as to what is going on between you. Rest assured, our relationship therapists provide a confidential, warm, safe, non-judgemental environment to help you relax and talk freely.
What happens during a session…..
Your relationship counsellor will firstly ask you both what you hope to achieve out of the therapy and tailor the sessions in order to help you get there
You will both be given the time and space to express how you feel, what you believe the problems are from your individual perspective and when they first started
With your therapists help – you will both begin to really listen and understand what your partner is saying and feeling
You will both be able to see the bigger picture of what is going on between you.
You will learn about yourselves and the role each of you play in the dynamics of the relationship
You will learn how to communicate more effectively
You will find out what is important to you
You find out how to bring back intimacy and loving feelings
You will learn how to manage your emotions and take responsibility for your own behaviour and the impact it has on the relationship
Relationship counselling sessions are 60 minutes long.
You don’t need to commit to a regular time, you can establish the times that will work for you around your other commitments.

Having Sabine help us talk through our problems helped us both see each others point of view and see things more clearly. Our marriage is much stronger now that it has been for years – thank you so much.
Byron & Claire – Birchington
We knew we needed to separate but wanted to do so amicably for the sake of our two children. Tara made this possible by offering us the support through a very difficult time.
Thank you Sian for putting our marriage back on track!
Mr & Mrs Donahue
When my wife suggested that we should see a relationship counsellor but I thought it was a stupid idea and was very sceptical and cynical!. However, Sian made us both feel very relaxed from the outset and she never took sides in any of our conversations. Unfortunately we were not able to save our relationship but Sian helped us through the difficult process and made the separation so such much easier. I would recommend her to anyone who is having problems
Although my partner was reluctant to go to couples therapy Maidstone but Alison put us both at ease straight away. I was surprised how he opened up and I was able to see things from his perspective for the first time. I know that he understands me more now and with Alison help we are closer than ever.
Hayley and John
I didn’t think there was any hope for our relationship as all we did was argue and shout at each other. We went to see Sian at marriage counseling Kent and she was so patient and understanding and always saw things from both points of view. We are now at a stage where we can at least communicate without getting angry. We are still working on our relationship but now feel at least there is light at the end of the tunnel.
