Couple Counselling Birchington


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

I understand that it can take great courage to reach out for help with your relationship. However, rest assured, most of us experience relationship difficulties at some point because life can be challenging at times. I provide a safe, confidential environment where we can work through your relationship difficulties together.

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

I offer couple counselling for every type of relationship and any kind of problem.

My approach to couple counselling

I provide a warm, safe, confidential environment in which we can work together to explore your relationship difficulties and help you make sense of what is going on.

At the beginning of the session I will ask what you hope to achieve out of the relationship therapy. Whether you would like help to make your relationship work better than it currently is. Or perhaps you would like help to separate more amicably. Maybe you are unsure as to what you want at this point, that’s okay we will work together to help you find some clarity.

I consider myself warm, approachable and non-judgemental. My aim is to ensure you both feel important and comfortable. I will help you to listen to each other’s perspectives. This will enable you to gain a better understanding of what each of you are experiencing, how you feel and why.  We will then explore the changes that need to be made so you are able to move forward more positively, in whichever way you choose.

I won’t just sit there and nod, instead I will take an active role in helping you make the changes that you choose. Feedback from the couples I have seen is that I am warm, easy to talk to, perceptive, encouraging and intuitive.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework and undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.
