Relationship therapy, or couples counselling, allows space for couples to communicate openly in hopes of finding solutions to problems within their relationship.

Relationships are an important part of most people’s lives but maintaining personal relationships can be difficult.

As people become more independent and self-sufficient, relationships can be challenging to maintain.  Changes in technology have had an impact on how we approach and manage our personal relationships.

Problems within intimate relationships are one of the most common reasons people seek counselling.

Can couples counselling help?

Couples in Brighton seek relationship counselling for many reasons:

  • Couples counselling can help resolve ongoing relationship problems or address unhealthy dynamics within relationships
  • Counselling can help couples work through recent, unexpected conflicts that have arisen in their relationship
  • Couples counselling can help couples nearing the end of their relationship, but who want to work things out first
  • Counselling can help couples who are ending their relationship, but want to end on good terms
  • Couples counselling can help with sexual, intimacy or abuse issues within relationships

What to expect from couples therapy in Brighton

As with individual therapy, your first appointment will provide an opportunity for each partner to identify any relationship issues, agree specific goals in couples therapy and begin a process of focused, open communication, facilitated by your couples therapist.

Sometimes people will have concerns about how couples counselling might help and these concerns can be addressed at this first meeting.

Our couples therapists in Brighton are unbiased — we don’t take sides. We understand that issues within relationships are often very private and personal. Our couples therapists do not judge our clients’ personal choices or sexual experiences.

Making your first appointment with us

First appointments for couples counselling in Brighton are usually available within one week, though circumstances mean that we sometimes operate a short waiting list. We will find an appointment that’s convenient to you and your partner wherever possible.

Our couples counsellors are experienced in managing sessions in a structured, straightforward manner and are trained to make sure that both partners in a couple get a fair and equal voice during the sessions.

Relationship therapy is not just for couples. Individuals with relationship problems may consider personal counselling to help understand and resolve any intimacy or sexual issues within personal relationships.

Every couple is different

Every couple is different and couples counselling can last a few weeks or a few months, depending on the issues that need addressing.

Appointments in Brighton are held weekly with one of our experienced couples therapists. Appointments last 50 minutes.

Couples counselling may be ongoing and open-ended, or time-limited to 10 sessions for those who prefer help with a specific problem.

All discussions in couples counselling are handled sensitively and, of course, discussions with your therapist are always confidential.

If you and your partner are having problems and want to know if relationship therapy might help, please get in touch.

Over the years many couples have turned, in confidence, to our relationship counselling services in central Brighton.

More about therapy for individuals

"I learned a lot about myself and about the relationships I make with other people. I was able to see where I was going wrong and I now make better personal choices. Thank you, again."

"I was able to confront many issues which I had so far chosen to ignore despite their negative effects on my personal relationships and happiness. I would have no hesitation in recommending (One Therapy) to anyone looking to improve their relationships and self-esteem."

My therapist was completely non-judgemental which allowed me to be totally honest in the sessions and say how I was feeling without reservation. I felt comfortable talking with him and it was a really valuable experience that I would thoroughly recommend.

Therapy helped me through a difficult time. I gained so much insight into myself and my life. My first experience of therapy was excellent. I am so grateful to One Therapy for this.
