Our Relationship Counselling Service
There are times when relationships may not go as well as we had hoped and we need the help of a relationship counsellor to mediate and encourage change. Whether you are married, cohabiting, dating, or in a different or same-sex relationship, couples counselling could help you to improve the quality of your relationship and prevent a relationship breakdown.
Different to individual counselling or psychotherapy, relationship counselling (sometimes known as couples or marriage counselling) focuses on the health and well-being of the relationship. Individual history is taken into account insofar as history is explored in relation to how it impacts the quality of the relationship.
During the process, the counsellor or therapist will help you and your partner/s to create therapeutic goals which you can work on together.
The relationship counsellor will use techniques that will help all parties improve communication, helping you to resolve differences within your relationship.
At the Cherry Tree Centre, we also understand that there are times when a relationship may not work and individuals would prefer not to work towards a resolution. On these occasions, the relationship counsellor will help the individuals work towards separating amicably.
If the couple is working towards divorce the relationship counsellor may work alongside family mediators to support the emotional aspects of separation.
Sessions are balanced and all individuals will be given the same amounts of time within the sessions. Your relationship counsellor will remain neutral, and compassionate to all parties. They will not judge any of the parties and will remain unbiased.
If your relationship is struggling and you would like help in working towards a resolution, a member of our team is here to help you.
