Marriage Counselling and Psychotherapy in London

Is your marriage not what it was?

Are you struggling to understand your spouse lately and missing the closeness you once had? Feeling taken for granted? Or has an affair or major life change turned your life together upside down? 

Marriages are a deep personal investment, and when things go wrong it can erode your confidence and sense of self. You might feel fatigued and confused. How did you get here, and what can you do?  

Marriage counselling to find the clarity you need

Well-meaning friends and family might offer advice, but are often too involved to give you the perspective you need. A marriage counsellor can offer an unbiased, non-judgemental, and entirely confidential helping hand.

At Harley Therapy we support many couples who seek counselling and therapy to understand their issues. Our expert marriage therapists work with you to identify what your conflict really is, how you are thinking and feeling, and what decisions you both want to make moving forward.

Your relationship is the true client when you attend marriage counselling with us. Our therapists do not take sides but are here to help you develop your skill of communicating clearly with each other, and to guide you to finding the best possible outcomes yourselves.  

Understand each other again - The Harley Therapy™ approach

At Harley Therapy London we are happy to offer you what your marriage needs. This might be a single session, but for many spouses it is to attend sessions together over the course of several weeks or months. Sometimes you might also want to also see your counsellor individually, which can be arranged.

Your first session will be be an assessment where your therapist works to understand what has bought you to counselling, how therapy can best serve your relationship, and what your expectations are. It will include asking your history as a couple, as well as questions such as, what are the things you feel are not working? How long have these problems been going on? What are you hoping to learn from marital counselling, and what are your expectations?

Your following sessions will see your therapist helping you with the following:

  • open and honest communication
  • recognising behavioural patterns
  • understanding and owning your feelings and actions
  • seeing each others' perspective
  • negotiating with each other
  • managing expectations
  • compromising in useful ways
  • finding new ways forward

While it's true that marriage counselling can sometimes result in a decision to separate, it gives you the tools to do so in a way that is honest and fair for both you and your family.
