Canterbury & Birchington Practice

Couple Counselling Canterbury & Birchington


I’m Sabine Hawkins and I’m an experienced BACP (British Association Counsellors Psychotherapists) registered therapist based at both Couple Counselling Canterbury and Relationship Counselling Birchington.

I understand it takes great courage to reach out for help. However, most of us experience relationship difficulties a some point because life can be challenging at times. So I provide a confidential, safe environment in which we can work through your relationship difficulties together.

A number of things can impact our relationships. This can include a stressful work/life balance, negative behaviour patterns, poor communication or external influences.

How I Can Help

My aim is to provide a warm, safe, confidential environment in which we can work together to explore your relationship difficulties and help you make sense of things.

I consider myself warm, approachable and non-judgemental. My aim is to ensure that you both feel important and comfortable. I will help you listened to and understood. That way you will gain a better understanding of what each of you are experiencing and how you feel. We will then explore the changes that need to be made going forward. To either better the relationship or help you separate amicably. Depending on what you choose.

I will take an active role in helping you make the changes that you choose. Feedback from the couples I see is that I am warm, easy to talk to, perceptive, encouraging and intuitive. Reviews What people say about me

Elaine Brown

Deal & Canterbury Practice

Relationship Counselling Deal


Hello, my name is Elaine Brown and I am a fully qualified ‘Relate’ trained relationship therapist based at Relationship Counselling Deal and Canterbury. I have had over six years’ experience both privately and with Relate supporting couples, individuals and young people.

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

My experience

Over a number of years, I have worked both in the private and public sector, as well as for voluntary and charity organisations.  This involved supporting a wide range of people, in a variety of different working environments, both in the UK and overseas. My work as a relationship therapist has led me to working with people from all walks of life and a wide range of diverse cultures and backgrounds. This includes same gender relationships, blended families, couples living apart, with or without children.

How I can help

Relationship counselling is often reflective and can be a difficult journey. Therefore, making the decision to come along for counselling can feel a brave one to make.  However, it is an important investment for you both individually and as a couple. I consider myself to be honest and considerate with a down to earth, friendly approach. I will use my experience, integrity and understanding to ensure you both feel heard, listened to and supported throughout the counselling journey.

Couples often tell me that the problems in their relationship go back months, if not years. And I’m aware how difficult this can be. Therefore, during our work together at Relationship Counselling Deal. I will help you navigate your way through your problems with empathy, kindness and respect.

I will endeavour to ensure you feel you have chosen the right relationship therapist for you. During my work, I use a variety of different theoretical approaches and therapeutic tools, tailoring to them to suit your particular needs. I will not judge you, but instead help you both to really understand each other’s perspectives. This will enable you to move forward in the way you choose.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the NCS code of practice and BACP ethical framework.

I also undertake regular professional development, have regular clinical supervision and hold professional indemnity insurance.
