Rainbow Couples Counselling Service

Rainbow Couples Counselling Service

Possibly one of our most requested services, certainly an area of growing demand, is couples counselling.

Couples counselling service at Rainbow Counselling SheffieldMany couples seek counselling to help them with a wide variety of issues in their relationship. Common themes include communication, connectedness and conflict resolution, but every couple and every relationship is different. Rainbow Couple Counsellors Evelyn and Helen provide a safe and confidential space for couples to come together to explore their particular areas of challenge.

Typically couples require between 6 and 20 sessions. Together with their Rainbow counsellor they would look at unhelpful patterns of behaviour that may have become entrenched, working to foster a better understanding of their partner. This may help to rekindle the relationship, or provide understanding following an affair for example. Couples counselling can also be used to help couples separate amicably and in the best way possible. Please contact us to speak to Evelyn or Helen to find out how we may be able to help you to improve your relationship with your partner.

Over the next weeks and months we will be highlighting some of the specific services that are offered at Rainbow Counselling, in addition to usual one-to-one therapy. (N.B. Check out Jane’s blog post from April which describes some more about how Coaching can help you).

Having counselling remotely via phone or video callThis week we are looking at remote counselling, which might take place over the phone or via a platform such as Zoom or Skype. We are becoming all too familiar these days with remote ways of working and fortunately counselling can work remotely too, offering real benefits in terms of flexibility especially. Remote counselling may also suit you if mobility is an issue and getting out of the house can pose a challenge.

We wanted to highlight a few extra considerations to bear in mind when speaking with your counsellor remotely, perhaps some things you may not have considered. Think about whether you might be overheard and how you can minimise the chances of this. Be aware that strong thoughts and emotions can be stirred by counselling and this can be a strange experience in your own home, without the special trip out you might normally take to see your counsellor. Consider ‘rituals’ to end the session for yourself such as jotting down your reflections or doing some stretches.

Finding what works for you can mean that you can really make the most of what remote counselling has to offer. And of course, don’t forget to charge up that device in advance!! For more info please visit our: Remote Counselling Service page >

Remember support is out there! You are not alone. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our counsellors today.
