My aim is to always ensure that you both feel listened to with empathy, sensitivity and without judgement during our sessions.

It is about enabling you both to find satisfactory solutions to your own problems, and involves an invitation to change. These changes amy bring you closer together and create a deeper connection for the long term. Counselling is life-enhancing because it offers hope to people who have lost their way on the journey of life. Also, it encourages an awareness of who you truly are.

I work diversely with mixed cultures, same gender relationships, families and friendships.  Any relationship can cause stress and conflict. However, with the right help problems can be resolved.

Debbie Fletcher

Bromley Practice

Marriage Counselling Bromley

 

My name is Debbie Fletcher and I’m based at Marriage Counselling Bromley. I’m an experienced, BACP registered, Integrative Counsellor. Integrative counselling means, that I believe there are a number of different approaches to counselling. I understand that no one couple is the same, so no single theory is sufficient . Therefore I adapt my approach accordingly.

I understand that sometimes, people find it difficult to admit to having problems within their relationship. And that they have been unsuccessful in trying to sort them out on their own. It can feel like a big decision to seek professional help for your relationship. However, I have not yet had one couple tell me they regret it once they have taken the first step. In my experience, problems don’t go away when not discussed, they just fester until the relationship falls apart.

How I can help

A  ‘stuck’  relationship is one of the most common reasons that bring couples to marriage counselling. They keep going round in circles, repeating the same unhelpful patterns of communication and behaviour. Without help, it can be hard enough to identify that this is happening, let alone begin to change it without an understanding of what is going on behind it.

Individuals often complain about feeling not being listened to or that their partner misunderstands them. If this continues over a period of time it can lead to feelings of hurt, anger and resentment on one or both sides. Learning to communicate effectively, not only helps overcome any unresolved issues, it also prevents problems from developing in the future.

I offer a safe, unbiased and relaxed space, which will allow you both the opportunity to talk openly and honestly with each other in a way you may have not done for some time.

Relationship counselling isn’t about attributing blame, nor is it about me taking sides or forcing either one of you to take a particular course of action. It’s about helping you both develop a better understanding of each other, yourselves, and the role you both play in the relationship.

This new understanding will help you to continue to build closer, more honest, loving relationship going forward.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

Debbie provides couple counselling Bromley, marriage counselling Bromley and relationship counselling Bromley.

I am a professionally trained ‘Integrative Counsellor’ which means I take combined approach to therapy. This means I bring together different elements of specific therapies. Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat everyone in all situations.

I have vast experience in couple counselling as well as being a clinical supervisor. I will provide support to rebuild, repair and re-bond you relationship. Or sometimes if required, I will help facilitate the end of a relationship as amicably as possible.

My background/experience

I’ve experienced a variety of issues during my time as a therapist, achieved through private practice, agency work along with five years working within the NHS IAPT (improved access to psychological therapies)

My extensive knowledge and understanding has highlighted the importance of effective communication within relationships. Alongside understanding the impact problems such as sexual desire or dysfunction, long term health conditions, domestic abuse, anxiety, depression or anger can have on relationships. I have seen and heard most things, so I’m not easily shocked or embarrassed, so there is nothing taboo..If you need to talk about it then I’m here to listen.

At the core of any successful therapy is the relationship between counsellor and the individual. Therefore, I strive to build a trusting and empathic relationship with you.

At marriage counselling Sittingbourne I provide a safe, confidential space to talk through your issues together. Helping you to understand how you’re past events and experiences may be responsible for your current beliefs and behaviour.

We may not always be aware; but sometimes our beliefs become unhealthy or may even be incorrect, which can lead to unhealthy behaviours filtering into the relationship. We are all influenced by our early years and the people around us. Therefore, it can be helpful to understand our partner’s history as well as understanding our own.

By helping you to understand yourselves, alongside finding more healthy ways of communicating, you will be equipped with the tools to make the most of your future and find happiness once again in your relationship.

I will tailor my work to suit your individual situation. I am a trained life coach so may use these skills alongside the therapy to help you manage life, maximise your potential and achieve your goals.

I also struggle with my own issues some days but I get through them with a smile and a few expletives! #counsellorwhoswears. I love to laugh and always try to find a positive in every situation. However, it hasn’t always been this way. I have also had difficult times in my life when I thought I would never laugh again but I came through them. My own experiences give me the passion to help you through your difficult times.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP and NCS code of ethics and ethical framework. Additionally, I undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

Lorna Ashley

Sidcup Practice

Relationship Counselling Sidcup

 

My name is Lorna Ashley and I’m a qualified integrative counsellor based at Relationship Counselling Sidcup.  Integrative means I’m flexible in the way I work and use the best possible approach to achieve the outcome you choose.

Whether you decide that you want to stay together or want help in separating my aim is to promote a positive transition for change, fulfilment and self-awareness.

I have extensive experience in both relationship and individual counselling. I’m also a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

My experience

I have been practicing for a number of years both in private practice and for two charitable organisations, where my work focusses on bereavement and suicide. I am also clinical lead supervisor which means I advise other counsellors with elements of their work.

About relationships

Life happens and it’s not always kind. The things we thought we had a handle on and believed we could cope with, can suddenly seem uncertain, confusing and overwhelming. We might experience thoughts and feelings which leave us feeling unable to make sense of it all. Your inner world can be very different to your external world. How you feel you have to be seen or heard can lead to conflicting emotions within your relationship.

Very few relationships are conflict-free. When one of our most important relationship begins to falter, our health and happiness often suffers. Whilst many couples might try and work through their problems alone, it’s difficult when emotions are running high. Therefore, it can be incredibly useful to seek outside professional help.

How I can help

Together we will look at what lies behind the current difficulties from both your perspectives by paying attention both to the past and the present. In order to bring about change you desire.

My role at relationship counselling Sidcup is to facilitate change and resolution by helping you both communicate more effectively and reach your own conclusions under the guidance of a professional.

Whatever your age, background, race or culture, you are not alone. Together we can go walk the journey and explore what could be going on for you both. Being heard and talking freely in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space can be incredibly empowering in understanding who you are and how you can be more true to you within your relationship, whilst navigating your own path for growth and development.

I am passionate in what I do and committed to working ethically and safely with my clients to overcoming the challenges that we are presented with.

Ethical standards

I subscribe to and work within the BACP ethical framework alongside undertaking regular professional development and supervision. I also hold professional indemnity insurance.

My aim is to offer respectful, non-judgemental, confidential support to both individuals and couples.  I’m a BACP (British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists) registered therapist and a ‘Relate’ trained couple counsellor with a specialist Relationship Counselling Diploma. I am also accredited by CPCAB.

If your relationship is struggling and communication is difficult at the moment, marriage counselling can help you make the changes required in order to improve the quality of your relationship going forward.

How I Can Help

My couple counselling provides an opportunity to improve communication within your relationship. Poor communication is the area that most commonly causes difficulties and brings couples to therapy.

I will enable you both the time and space to identify any current or historic patterns of behaviour; that might be having a detrimental effect on your relationship. Together, we can then find a new way going forward by implementing new strategies to positively impact your relationship.

My approach is warm, supportive and encouraging. I will ensure you both have the opportunity to talk and heard.  When we are in the appropriate environment, we are more likely to be able to hear and say things in a way we have not been able to before.  Each couple is individual and unique and every relationship requires different things. Therefore when we work together, I will help you work towards and achieve your relationship goals.

I have vast experience working with mixed cultures, same gender relationships and families. Any type of relationship can encounter difficulties.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

Sarah Warrington

Sevenoaks Practice

Relationship Counselling Sevenoaks

 

My name is Sarah Warrington and I’m a fully qualified integrative psychotherapist/counsellor based at Relationship Counselling Sevenoaks. I have worked with both individuals and couples in private practice for over five years.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). Alongside being an accredited member of the NCS (National Counselling Society)

How I can help

Integrative means I’m trained in different theoretical approaches so I can tailor the therapy to the style which suits you best.

During my couple counselling sessions I work mainly in a ‘solution focused’ way. This means we will focus on what we can change to improve your relationship going forward. We will of course look back at the past because it’s is important to gain an understanding of what has caused issues in your relationship. This will be from both your perspectives so both feel heard and understood. We can then focus on what you both require from each other going forward to achieve your relationships goals.

In couples counselling, it is the relationship that is the client, not the individuals. Therefore, I always aim to remain unbiased and non-judgmental and allow you both the opportunity to talk openly and honestly with each other, in a way you may not have done for some time.

I believe that to get the most out of counselling, it is important to find a therapist that is right for you. For it to be successful, you will need someone you can connect with and feel comfortable and secure opening up to. The feedback I get is that clients are very comfortable talking to me and they find it easy to be open and talk honestly about how they really feel. This helps clients to feel understood and gets you both communicating more effectively.

I work diversely with vast experience working with mixed cultures, same gender relationships, families and friendships.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within BACP code of ethics and ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

Sian Jones

Ashford Practice

Couple Counselling Ashford

 

My name is Sian Jones BSc (hons) and I’m a fully qualified relationship counsellor and CBT therapist based at Couple Counselling Ashford.

I started the first ‘Relationship Counselling Kent’ practice in Ashford eight years ago, before expanding across Kent. And have a proven track record in successfully helping hundreds if couples achieve their chosen goal.

How I can help

The approach I take whilst relationship counselling is step by step and non-judgemental. I will encourage you to work through your problems together. When asked the relevant questions, you will both be able to open up and explain what isn’t working for you and why.  In turn, this allows your partner the opportunity to really listen and try understand your point of view.

It’s not about trying to get you to agree to each others perspectives. Nor is it about attributing blame. It’s about gaining a proper understanding of how the other person feels and why. Because importantly, experience has shown, when an ‘understanding’ from both parties is reached, it goes a long way in removing any hurt, resentment or anger that may have built up. This will allow you to move forward more positively, in whichever way you choose.

The feedback I receive is that I have an exceptional ability to make couples feel quickly at ease . For the reason that, when people feel comfortable, they find it much easier to open-up, be honest and communicate more effectively.

Rest assured, I won’t sit there silently waiting for you to speak, I will take an active part in the conversation and the process of recovery and change. Read What couples say about me

Sj Mason

Gravesend Practice

Relationship Counselling Gravesend

 

My name is Sj Mason and I’m based at Relationship Counselling Gravesend. I’m a ‘Relate’ trained couple counsellor, along with being a fully qualified therapist for adult individuals.

I have over 10 years’ experience in couple counselling and class myself as a down to earth, open, honest and realistic. I’m also trained in couple mediation, which helps during my work, especially when couples are unsure as to whether they want to stay together or separate amicably.

How I Can Help

As a professional relationship therapist I am trained to ensure that the relationship is the client within the couple work. Most importantly, my aim is to be impartial, non-judgmental to help you achieve your goal.

My work at relationship counselling Gravesend doesn’t have a set modality. This means, I draw upon a toolbox of skills and experience to help you move from a place of worry and insecurity; to a place of hope, harmony and happiness in your relationship.

I take a solutions focused approach. Although, we will look back at the past in order to understand what has not worked well – from both perspectives. It’s important to gain an understanding of what has caused the issues in your relationship and the role you have both played. When we working from a solution base stance we explore how those things can be changed going forward.

I work diversely and have vast experience working with mixed cultures, same gender relationships, families and friendships – any relationship can cause stress and conflict. However, with the right help and support these issues can be resolved.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

Tanya Thompson

Herne Bay Practice

Couple Counselling Herne Bay

 

My name is Tanya Thompson. I’m a UKCP Registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist based at Couple Counselling Herne Bay. I have extensive experience working within the NHS and private practice both with individuals, couples and families.

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

I’m warm, open and non-judgemental. Meaning I will provide a supportive and safe space for your to explore, process and work through your difficulties. Often problematic modes of communication surface within the context of therapy. This can be in the content of what we say, how we say it and how we are with each other. Because I’m objective; it mean I’m well placed to be able to recognise any negative relationship patterns as they surface during our sessions.

During the therapy we will consider both individual and the couple difficulties. I will 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 in relation to others. This will result in your relationship  becoming stronger and ultimately more fulfilling.
