At Relationship Counselling Kent we find it’s becoming increasingly common for couples to want help with their relationship, but they struggle to find the time for face to face sessions. This is often due to location, long working hours/work travel or difficulties around childcare. To meet this demand, we have introduced couples online counselling via Zoom, Skype or Facetime.
Online couples counselling is a new way of delivering couple counselling via the Internet. It’s just like face-to-face therapy except you and your partner communicate with your relationship therapist via your computer. Online couples counselling can prove as effective as its face-to-face alternative for some couples.
Thanks to today’s technology, help can come right into your office or home at a time that is convenient for you. This means that, even if you’re travelling for business, you can meet with your relationship therapist without missing an appointment.
It’s unlikely that traditional face to face relationship therapy will be replaced by online couple counselling. However, studies show, that it can be a good option for lots of couples.
You can see and hear your counsellor and they can see and hear you, so the experience is very close to that of face to face counselling.
You don’t have to live nearby. So, you can choose which of our couple counsellors you would like to see because they offer a particular approach
You can have counselling from the convenience and privacy of your own home or office, which saves time and money.
You get to have a similar experience to face to face counselling but without the exposure which can be daunting for some.
Zoom offers the option of group video calls so couples don’t even have to be in the same location as each other.
However, online counselling is not for every couple or every situation. Some people are much more comfortable with the immediacy of face to face counselling and there are some issues that are much better dealt with face to face.
Our therapists belong to an accredited body for counsellors and psychotherapists. When online counselling, they are still bound by the same professional code of ethics as face-to-face therapy.
For couple counselling we don’t recommend using a phone because it is important that the therapist is able to see both of your faces clearly.

Jackie Hare My husband and I were both very nervous and unsure of what our session with Jackie would be. We were quickly reassured and had everything explained to us. Jackie is wonderful, she is the perfect mix of funny, reassuring and knowledgeable. My husband and I were in a rut, Jackie helped us to see the importance of us again. We would not hesitate to use Jackie's services again if the need arises, however, using the tools she equipped us with we both believe we won't need to. Jackie helped us talk to each other about things we would never have done so without her help. We are proud of us for going to marriage counselling but we feel very lucky to have met Jackie and used her amazing guidance.
Jackie Hare Dear Jackie, I can't thank you enough for all your help during our sessions. You have given me the tools and skills I need to move forward in a positive way. I particularly liked the way you had saved notes from my first contact for counselling so that at the end we could re-cap and ensure all my issues had been worked through. Having the notes from you has really helped too as I like to be able to read through them so that I don't forget anything important that we talked about. What was really interesting is the way you helped me to work through my problems rather than just suggesting solutions to me. I enjoyed my "eureka" moments where suddenly a penny would drop and I would see something from a completely different perspective. And as far as those eureka moments go, I still have them - do you remember we talked about how unrealistic a lot of those romantic comedies are particularly from the 80s and 90s and I realised recently that a lot of pop songs can be exactly the same if you listen to the lyrics. I listen and watch now with a very different point of view! Not sure if you found it online but the documentary called Romantic Comedy by Elizabeth Sankey is really interesting to watch. Thanking you so much, Best wishes, Neana x
Jackie Hare Jackie helped us at a time when we were approaching rock bottom in our relationship. We both found her to be friendly, very approachable and reassuring. She helped us to communicate at a much deeper level and to understand the other's point of view. We would thoroughly recommend Jackie to any couple going through relationship difficulties.
Kathy Hoggart 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.
Kaye Barney 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.
