Hello, my name is Beth and I am a fully qualified CBT therapist who offers a unique, tailor made approach to couple counselling called ‘Rational Emotive Counselling Therapy’ (RECT). Which is for couples struggling with emotional disturbance in their relationships
I hold an ‘Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)’ and ‘Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT)’ awarded by ‘The College of Cognitive Therapies London’. Both of which are accredited by the ‘National Counselling Society’ (NCS).
I am also a qualified Mediator, which means I am an unbiased third person who is called upon to help resolve any differences/disputes. I have mediated a range of disputes, including family, neighbourhood and employment disputes. This has given me a good insight into relationships and how they breakdown when one or both parties hold irrational demands on themselves or the other person.
I combine my experience as a mediator with my REBT training in order to provide ‘Rational Emotive Counselling Therapy (RECT) for couples.
At the start of the session, I will ask you what you are hoping to achieve through couple counselling. Perhaps you want help in making your relationship work better than it currently is. Or maybe you would like help to be able to separate more amicably. Perhaps, at this point in time, you might be feeling a little sceptical as to whether the relationship can be any better, so you would like to see how the therapy goes before you decide.
It is not my mission to rescue or save a troubled relationship if that isn’t what you want. I will help you work towards your goal. If you are unsure as to which direction you want the relationship to take. I will help free you from any strong negative emotions so that you can make more informed decisions as to whether you want to continue the relationship.
If you decide you want to stay together, I will help you enhance your long-term happiness. This will be through helping you eliminate and replace relationship-defeating beliefs. We will then work on identifying and changing any dysfunctional/unhelpful behaviour patterns to ones that help achieve long-range happiness. I will teach you cognitive, emotive and behavioural skills so you are able to successfully resolve any problems in the future. Ensuring ongoing harmony and happiness once the relationship counselling sessions have come to an end.
Relationships require hard work in order to ensure both parties feel mutually supported, respected and secure. In today’s busy world, it can be all too easy to lose focus on connecting with, listening to and supporting your partner. I provide a warm and non-judgmental environment where you can talk openly about the problems from your individual perspective. We will work together to better understand the role you have both played in the relationship running into difficulties. I will then help you understand the changes and tools required so you can support one another going forward.
I will help you both to rebuild your confidence, understand the possibilities of relating to each other more effectively and feel more enabled to make empowered choices about your relationship.
I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and as such subscribe to and work within the NCS code of ethics. I undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.

My name is Alison Day and I’m a qualified ‘Relate’ trained counsellor based at Marriage Counselling Maidstone. I’m a member of the BACP (British Assocation of Counselling and Psychotherapy) with over 9 year’s couple counselling experience . I use an ‘integrative approach’ when working with couples, individuals and families. Which means I draw upon a wide range of therapies in order to suit each individual couple.
Couple counselling can offer support at challenging and difficult life stages. It can help with communication, managing conflict, processing and releasing the build up of emotional resentment. Furthermore, it can help you find new ways to connect with each other.
I have a warm, empathetic approach and provide a supportive environment, using practical interventions, to help to promote positive change and enhance understanding. This will help you build strong foundations and increase awareness of what the strengths are in your relationships as well as focusing on the difficulties and areas for potential change.
I will help you explore the challenges you may be facing and assist you in developing more effective communication with eachother. This will help you to find hope and a new way forward, in whichever way you choose.
I work diversely and have 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.
