Relationship Counselling London is a group of professionally trained and experienced relationship counsellors/therapists. We have a twenty year effective history or delivering couple and relationship counselling in London. We offer a private and confidential service at venues throughout London. We believe we understand the stress and challenges of living and working in this great city.
All of our counsellors have undertaken specialist accredited training to work with relationship issues. Relationship Counselling London counsellors are required to have regular supervision of their work, to meet regularly with their colleagues and to be involved in continuing professional development.
Relationship Counselling London counsellors all belong to professional associations: the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy or the UK Council for Psychotherapy and subscribe fully to their respective codes of ethics and practice. Psychosexual therapists are members of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists and subscribe fully to the COSRT Code of Ethics and Practice. We are required to hold public liability insurance.
When you make your initial contact you will communicate directly with your practitioner and not via an agency or call centre. You will be seen in a private residence, a discreet counselling suite or purpose-built therapy room. Some practitioners also offer Skype and telephone counselling.
You will be offered an initial assessment appointment. Relationship Counselling London is particularly aware that juggling the responsibilities of work, family and social life means that having access to counselling fairly close to home, at a convenient time, is crucial. For this reason Relationship Counselling London counsellors offer sessions on weekday evenings, Saturdays and before 9am, as well as during usual working hours, at a variety of locations.
Relationship Counselling London is aware that you may have an unpredictable schedule – for instance, may travel for work or work shifts – and therefore need more flexible appointment times. We are aware that once you have reached the decision to seek counselling, you do not want to have to wait. Relationship Counselling London responds quickly and sympathetically to requests for counselling and you can usually expect to be seen by a counsellor as soon as you wish to attend.
The practitioner will generally expect to see you and you partner, or just yourself if you are attending on you own, once a week at an agreed time so you can plan for the session and count on the availability of the counsellor, but this is flexible. Some practitioners offer 50 minute sessions and some offer longer appointment options. The counsellor is reliable and dependable, and will always give advance notice of any breaks or holidays. It is very rare for the counsellor to cancel a session or change session times at short notice.
