What Is Couple Counselling?
Are you stuck in the same arguments, experiencing communication issues, trying to recover from infidelity within your relationship, not sure whether you and your partner are separating, trying to co-parent? Is there a lack of sexual desire, do you feel jealous, frustrated or disillusioned? Leone Centre’s Couples Counselling London service can help.
Specifically trained in Couple Counselling, our therapists aim at providing a safe and collaborative place where you can together share your thoughts, feelings and experiences of each other moving towards establishing a common ground.
The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives. It is easy to forget our right to happiness and fulfilment in our relationships and lives when things go wrong.
When couples start a relationship together, they often develop a belief that they must handle all they encounter alone.
You might have tried and tried to make your marriage work or even started Couple Counselling before. Couple Counselling can help those who might not want to stay in an unfulfilled marriage but separating from the family unit does not feel right either. Sometimes a sudden crisis emerges and requires immediate attention.

What’s Our Approach To Couples Counselling?
Our couples therapy approach is collaborative, thoughtful and engaging. Our couple counselling experts uniquely design each session to be interactive, reflective and to ensure that every participant feels involved.
Some of the areas we work on in couples counselling:
- Communication and conflict resolution
- Rekindling sexual desire
- Divorce and separation
Couple counselling and psychotherapy offers a great opportunity for people in any close relationship to make sense of and to overcome the problems and challenges that inevitably occur during their lifetime together.
At Leone Centre Couples Counselling London and Psychotherapy, we work confidentially, supporting couples to make sense of the challenges that inevitably occur during the lifetime of a long-term relationship.

A mutual commitment to the work will accelerate your relationship to start moving towards a stronger and more meaningful place. When both partners are active and enthusiastic about strengthening your bond with couples counselling, your relationships moves towards a much better and more fulfilling place.

Starting Marriage And Couple Counselling
We aim to offer an initial couples counselling session within one business day of your initial contact at one of our London locations.
It is not unusual for one partner in a relationship to be more reluctant to engage in couples counselling. Our counsellors use the first session to reassure couples and to provide them with an overview of the positive aspects of communicating, listening and understanding.
What Can Couples Counselling Tackle?
No-one takes a decision to divorce or separate lightly. Such a decision usually involves a high degree of pain, confusion, anger and anxiety.
In our culture, we tend to view divorce and separation as a failure. Longevity is seen as the ultimate indicator of marital achievement, plenty of people who stayed in relationships that did not work have been miserable.
Emotional and financial resources can be easily dissipated in the psychological and legal costs of a harsh divorce and settlement process.
Co-parenting needs to be focused on the children rather than entangled in difficult parental dynamics or resentment.
When a relationship has run its course, in couples counselling our therapists aim to— when we can —help it end with dignity and integrity. There is no paradox in asking a couple about the success of their breakup.
