Our Approach to Marriage Guidance & Relationship Counselling
We understand that it might feel like big step coming to talk to a relationship counsellor about the issues in your relationship, especially as one of you might be resistant to attending couple counselling. . However, please rest assured, our relationship counsellors offer a safe, comfortable non-judgemental environment to help you relax and where:
You will both be given the time to express what you want and to explore what the issues are
Your partner begins to hear what you are saying and vice versa
You both are able to see the bigger picture of what is going on
You learn communication skills
You learn about your differences and what you both need
You find out what is important to you
You find out how to bring back intimacy and loving feelings
You learn how to manage your emotions and look after yourself better
You both find out how to set limits over what type of behaviour you will or won’t accept within your 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.
Two Hour Intensive Relationship Recovery Sessions are also available
Work Intensively on your relationship – Helpful for relationships in crisis.
We find that working intensively in a committed way can be an effective way of focussing on issues and reaching a resolution more quickly.
So what happens in the first session?
With our help, you will explore what each of you feel the issues are in the relationship and establish what you both want to achieve from counselling.
There’s opportunity to say what is going on for you as an individual and find out more about your partner’s feelings. You get to experience how we work and decide whether it feels right for you.

Having Sian 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
We knew we needed to separate but wanted to do so amicably for the sake of our two children. Sian 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 for counselling 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 Relationship Counselling 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.
