Pre-Marital/Pre-Living Together - Couples Counselling
In general couples tend to seek the help of marriage guidance or couples counselling when their relationship is at breaking point; and it has usually taken a number of months/years for them to get to this crucial point with the problems building up over time.
Pre-marital or pre-living together couples counselling is a great way to prepare you both for getting married or if you are planning on moving in together, because it creates an awareness of how issues might begin. It also helps in raising awareness of the most common pitfalls that can lead to a relationship breaking down before that happen.
How your relationship is now and who you are as people, changes over time along with the feelings you have about your partner develop and mature over time. Having an understanding of the stages relationships go through can really help you change and adapt together. You will learn the importance of being up-front and honest but also how to say things in the ‘right’ way. You will also be given the right tools to help deal with conflict as soon as it arises which will help stop hurt and resentment building up.
Whether it’s for the first time or you are making a new start. Premarital counselling is a form of relationship counselling looking at hopes, fears, expectations around marriage or living together.

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.
