Relationships can be one of the most fulfilling and pleasurable areas in our life. Our tendency to develop intimate and intense relationships can bring great happiness. However, occasionally our relationships can become full of tension, resentment, hurt and conflict causing pain and upset to one or both parties. Difficulties in relationships are one of the most common causes of unhappiness and often one of the main reasons that bring people to therapy.
In general, poor communication is the main factor that causes issues in relationships. Many of the individuals we see claim they struggle with a feeling of not being listened to, or that their partner doesn't take time to understand what they are saying. It’s also very common for the same topics to provoke arguments and blame without a solution being found so couples find themselves going round and round in circles.
There can be a lot of sadness, hurt, anger and resentment beneath the surface of relationship difficulties. It takes courage to listen to your partner and a commitment to understand their point of view, let alone find the words to say what’s important from your own point of view. Through gentle questioning our counsellors will help you explore the underlying issues in order for you to both achieve a new level of understanding.
It can feel like a big step taking the decision talking to someone else about the issues in your relationship, especially as one of you might be resistant to attending counselling. However, rest assured; relationship counselling is not about who is right or wrong, it's about open discussion and helping you both trying to achieve the outcome you want.
Whether you come with your partner or alone, whether you're gay or heterosexual, married or single; relationship counselling offers a safe and confidential setting in which to explore your difficulties and to help find more productive and fulfilling ways of relating to each other.
Common relationship issues: - Infidelity and affairs. 'Stuck' relationships. Intimacy problems. Jealousy and suspicion. Stale relationships. Breaks Up's and Divorce.
The purpose of Couples Therapy is to help you stay together as a couple unless you tell us that you wish to separate, in which case, Relationship Counselling Kent can help you to do so much more amicably and with a greater understanding of why the relationship broke down in the first place.

Our Client Reviews
Kathy Hoggart is amazing! With Kathy’s help my husband and I are back ‘on track’. Kathy reassured us that both of our feelings count and because of this Kathy gained our trust instantly. Kathy quickly helped us to identify what could be causing our issues and how we can use simple techniques and solutions to resolve/manage/accept them.
Kathy had a very thoughtful approach throughout our sessions so that they were well planned and logical but also free flowing and flexible and without her being overbearing or dictating the pace. We had quick exercises that we willingly did in between our sessions that also really helped with our conversation during them. The support Kathy gave us to resolve our issues was superb. The tips and encouragement Kathy gave us helped us to work well together during the sessions. We were also able to work independently so that we made good progress from one session to the next. We are still using those tips now and we still remind each other when we need to of the wonderful guidance Kathy gave so that we can continue to benefit from it whenever we need to.
I have recently been helped by Kaye Barney and through my sessions I can honestly say I have felt improvement. She helped create a open and friendly platform in which we could discuss the relevant topics that helped ease my overall stress and anxiety. I would recommend Kaye very highly and I would not hesitate to book further sessions if I felt the need. I would also recommend the online sessions and found them far less stressful that adding extra travel to my day.
For Julie and I, counselling was an opportunity for change. We knew we were stuck and needed the time, the tools, the space, the bravery and impetus to begin the process of change.
Tim gave us what we needed and at a pace we could manage. Tim joined with us in our exploration so the Julie-and- I duo became a trio with Tim; working together to resolve our issues.
After each session we felt empowered to take away what we had discussed so that we may consider this in greater depth in our own time.
He was never the passive wall or mirror (which would have irritated and blocked our learning) but an active participant in our striving to move forward .
Clive and Julie
“Thank you for a really good session Trish. We were feeling really stuck for a time. You listened and helped pull us back into a place where we could think and makes things feel better. We are very glad we chose to turn to you for guidance. ”
“Thank you so much for everything you have done to help the situation with our marriage. We have learnt a lot but still have a way to go but you have helped more than we can of expected”
“Just to say Thank you for your help, it has been invaluable and it was wonderful confiding in someone so warm and non-judgemental. The sessions were priceless in how they improved our communication and overall relationship. The tools we’ve learnt will be invaluable taking froward”
Sian Jones – Relationship Help Ashford
“We found Sian to be such a huge help in our quest for improving our communication skills. Sian will teach you how to think about your behaviour and what it’s linked to so you learn to understand yourself and your partner a whole lot better. This is an invaluable technique,. She is also warm & fun which really helps!:)”

Sian Jones – Marriage Counselling Ashford
“We went to see Sian for some marriage counselling Ashford and found that she has an amazing ability to explain back to you EXACTLY how you are feeling, both me and my husband just couldn’t believe it! It was like she had experienced every single feeling we had at some point so she could really relate to it. At no point did she judge either of us such she just helped understand each other’s perspectives and got us actually communicating properly again! Thank you! Request an appointment
Debbie Fletcher – Relationship Help Bromley
“We felt having a space to talk in that was safe and supportive was really helpful. The sessions were very well managed and structured by Debbie Fletcher and there was an understanding and empathy with our situation which felt comforting. We were each allowed a decent time to talk and reflect”
“Thank you Debbie – you were very kind and understanding and we really appreciated the lack of judgement and desire to help us with your reflections and ideas” Request an appointment
Debbie Fletcher – Couple Counselling Bromley
“Relationship counselling with Debbie in Bromley was a positive experience for both of us. The initial questionnaire was a good way to get us to think deeply and try to identify issues we had and wanted to address”
“Debbie seemed to understand where each of us was coming from and tried to get us to see the other person’s point of view” Request an appointment
Tara Cratchley – Couple Counselling Tonbridge
“The Irish” (ha ha ha!) cannot thank you enough for all you have done for us Tara. It’s been a steep hill but we finally got there, we will never forget what you have done for us and all being well we won’t be back!! :))”
Allie Markantonis – Couple Counselling West Malling
“It’s been good and it’s been bad………………… but knowing what we know now …. we should have done it years ago! Thank you thank you thank you!”
Gaye Mitchell – Couple Counsellor Rochester
“As you know Gaye I have tried very hard to get over my wife’s affair. Unfortunately I haven’t been unable to forgive and forget and now know I never will. Although the whole experience has hurt like hell, I couldn’t have done it without you. You helped me through it by giving me time, patience and a different perspective. I know more about myself and relationships than I ever did before and I’m hoping one day I will see some good in what’s happened. Hopefully this will help me in my next relationship”
Tim Burns – Marriage Counselling Whitstable
“Having Tim 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”
Sabine Hawkins – Couple Therapy Birchington
“We knew we needed to separate but wanted to do so amicably for the sake of our two children. Sabine made this possible by offering us the support through a very difficult time”
Sian Jones – Couple Therapy Ashford
“Thank you Sian for putting our marriage back on track!”
Allie Markantonis – Couple Counselling Maidstone
“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, Allie 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 Allie helped us through the difficult process and made the separation so such much easier. I would recommend her to anyone who is having problems”
Elaine Brown – Marriage Counselling Deal
“Although my partner was reluctant to go to couples therapy but Elaine 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 Elaine help we are closer than ever”
Sian Jones – Relationship Counselling Ashford
“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 Ashford 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”
