Couple Counselling & Psychotherapy - The Leone Centre

Couple Counselling

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, well  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. You might not want to stay in an unfulfilled marriage, but separating from family does not feel right either. Sometimes a sudden crisis emerges and requires immediate attention.

Interactive, Reflective and Involved

Our couples therapy approach is collaborative, thoughtful and engaging.

Some of the areas we work on include:

  • Communication and conflict resolution
  • Jealousy
  • 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.

"It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance.” - Amanda McBroom

Can you save a marriage that has been emotionally and sexually absent for years? Is it possible for the love to come back? Is it really possible to fully recover from an affair? Can you stop the rows and the power struggles? Can you feel free to be true to yourself and say it as it is in a loving relationship? What is a good relationship? Can you communicate with your partner and be understood? Can you become parents without forgetting to be a couple?

“People change and forget to tell each other.” - Lillian Hellman

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.

Mutual Commitment

A mutual commitment to the work is the ground that helps your relationship to start moving towards a stronger and more meaningful place. When the potential of challenges is used to its best, your relationships moves towards a much better and more fulfilling place.

"Conflict is the alchemical soup that transforms raw emotion and instinct into pure gold." - Harville Hendrix

Our associates will work with couples who are: married or not, cohabiting or not, LGBTQ, heterosexual, in a partnership, in a process of separating or separated, co-parenting.

Starting Marriage And Couple Counselling

When needed, we aim at offering an initial session within one business day of your first contact.

It is not unusual for one partner in a relationship to be more reluctant to engage in Couples Therapy. Our first session gives a couple the opportunity to often provide reassurance and a sense of the positive aspects of communicating, listening and understanding.

Divorce And Separation - Ending Marriage With Grace And Respect - Co-Parenting

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, we try — when we can — to help it end with dignity and integrity. There is no paradox in asking a couple about the success of their breakup.
