Counselling Services for Couples
Couple counselling is also known as relationship counselling, or marriage guidance. Your relationship is unique to you, and what may work for one couple might not work for another. At The Happiness Concern we have a range of therapy options and approaches which can be tailored to your specific requirements.
We provide support, to couples in any kind of relationship:
- Gay or lesbian
- Separating or Divorcing
Couple counselling is for anyone that has difficulties in their relationship. Our highest priority is to help you develop a more meaningful way of communicating with each other, whilst increasing your understanding of how the problem you are experiencing affects your relationship.
Couples therapy is an opportunity to review your life together, and how you both reached this place right now.
The counsellor’s role is to explore more deeply what is going on in your relationship and work with you step by step to reach a solution. Far too many couples see counselling as a last resort, they usually arrive for a session feeling exhausted, or isolated due to the difficulties that you both have been unable to deal with.
From the first point of contact with us, you will feel supported…. you will be treated with integrity and respect at all times. Couples counselling is not about tea and sympathy, at the Happiness Concern we provide a dynamic and energy filled relationship, to help you find each other again and reconnect. We don’t just sit back and listen…. even though this is a valuable part of counselling, we tailor the therapy approach to suit all learning styles. We have found that men often like structure, and pragmatic ways of exploring what is happening, so your counsellor may use a wipe-board, or flip chart when appropriate. It is really an interactive relationship you will develop with your counsellor. When we first meet, we will discuss the various therapy options that are available to you, so you can decide which is the best way forward.
Often couples arrive in a crisis, they are at a point where sometimes they are thinking whether they can actually survive the last fight, or argument. We will quickly provide you with an appointment so you both can start to experience being heard again.
Couples counselling can help to:
- Start to reflect on how past experiences are influencing your present relationship
- Reconnect to each other as a couple, and also reconnect to what really matters to yourselves as individuals
- Understand what is unique about your couple relationship and how your values together can be a real source of strength
- Provide a safe environment for you both to talk about how your are feeling and behaving towards each other
- Help you reach a decision or solution that is right for you both, by increasing your understanding of the underlying causes that are stopping you both living the life you truly want
Common issues couple’s may have:
- Control and power
- Sexual difficulties
- Lack of intimacy
- Becoming distant with each other
- Domestic Violence
- Lack of communication
- Same rows that keep coming up
- Infidelity or affairs
- Not talking to each other

If you don’t see your particular issue on the list above that doesn’t mean we can’t help you.
