Online couples counselling in London - two tree hearts

Updated Jan 20, 2022 by Dr. Sheri Jacobson Dr Sheri Jacobson

Online Relationship Counselling London

  • Struggling to connect with your partner lately or see each other's perspective?
  • Or have a life decision to make, like marriage or separation?
  • But live apart, outside of London, or have busy schedules that mean in-person therapy is a challenge?

Our highly regarded team of online relationship therapists are here to help. 

What is an online couples therapy session like?  

Online therapy involves having a private space and a good internet connection, then checking in at an arranged time to a secure video conferencing platform like Skype or Zoom. With online couples therapy, you and your partner either sit together in frame, or both log in from different locations at the same time. Your therapist greets you, and the session continues just like an in-person one. 

What issues can it help with? 

Online relationship counselling can help you to:

  • stop destructive communication 
  • resolve old and new conflicts 
  • make decisions you have long avoided 
  • discuss and decide on having children or getting married
  • navigate parenting styles and challenges 
  • agree on how to deal with inlaws and extended family 
  • troubleshoot sex and intimacy problems 
  • recover from betrayal
  • deal with money and finance issues 
  • end your relationship in a healthy way. 

Relationship counselling online with Harley Therapy™ 

We understand you want a relationship therapist you can trust, and take the guesswork out of finding one. We only offer fully accredited couples counsellors and psychotherapists who trained at top institutions, have years of experience, and are passionate, reputable experts at what they do. Call 020 8003 4152 or use our online form to book a first session now. 

But does online counselling really work? 

Online therapy is now shown to be just as effective as in-person therapy. A recent review of research to date concluded, for example, that therapy over the internet is just as effective for most issues, including anxiety and depression. 1

Is this the right form of therapy for you?

If either you or your partner are always travelling, or are not wanting to see each other in person, online couples counselling is an accessible and convenient choice. And one that doesn’t require the hassle of transport or arranging childcare, provided your children are old enough to play in another room.

Some couples simply prefer therapy over the internet, as they feel more relaxed and open with each other in the comfort of their own space.
