Couples Counselling

What is Couples Counselling?

Couples counselling is a talking therapy that helps to improve communication and resolve difficulties within an intimate relationship and can support people with mild to moderate common mental health difficulties such as; low mood, anxiety and stress

We can deliver sessions over the telephone or face to face, either in your GP practice (subject to availability) or one of our own venues.  We sometimes work closely with Relate North East to help get the best support for you.

You may decide to come to counselling with your partner or alone and you might have a combination of solo or couple sessions.

Sessions last up to 1 hour and are generally weekly or fortnightly.

It can help you achieve positive changes in your relationship.

It can help you solve specific problems and help you move forward with more confidence and less anxiety.
