Couples Therapy

Couples Therapy involves partners actively working to address issues within their relationship. These services largely involve joint meetings, as well as some individual sessions, and typically target relationship concerns and needs, as well as adjustment to life situations.

Our therapists employ different therapeutic approaches, including systemic therapy and Emotionally focussed Therapy (EFT).

Systemic Therapy is an approach used either with families, couples or individuals which understands psychological difficulties of social relationships. It explores meanings of the difficulties within these contexts and sees them as ‘attempted solutions’.

According to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), Emotionally focussed Therapy (EFT) is an approach which looks at adult relationships and attachment. It included elements of systemic therapy. EFT aims to facilitate the creation of lasting bonds between partners. Additionally, it seeks to reinforce any pre-existing positive bonds. This will help the couple increase security, closeness, and connection in their relationship.
