Couples Counselling

Couples Counselling at Rainbow Counselling Services SheffieldOur relationships are a significant part of our lives. When our relationships fail to thrive, then we may struggle. Just as every individual is unique, so is every relationship.

At Rainbow Counselling Services, we provide a safe and confidential space for couples to come together to explore any difficulties which they may be experiencing in their relationship.

In our work with couples, Rainbow counsellors endeavour to get a clear understanding of each partner and to clarify the experience of each within the relationship. Typically, couples will require between 6 and 20 sessions. The most common themes are communication, conflict resolution, connectedness and intimacy (both emotional and physical). Together, we will identify the unhelpful patterns of relating that become entrenched over time, and work to foster a better understanding of your partner’s behaviour. The ultimate goal of the therapeutic process is to create a secure bond between partners involving love and appreciation, in a shared journey from isolation to connectedness.

Couples come for counselling for many reasons; they may be looking for ways to rediscover, repair damage caused by an affair, or rekindle their relationship, or they may be looking for a means to separate as amicably as possible. For some, it will be considered the last hope in saving the relationship.

If you would like further information about couples counselling, or if you would like to make an appointment, please contact us to be put in touch with one of our couples counsellors at Rainbow.

“I have found my sessions to be very person-centred as my counsellor understands what it is about me that allows me to be wounded by self or others. She has also quickly understood and brought into sessions the ways my emotions and spirit are touched in positive ways. Sometimes tears have flowed during or soon after and sometimes pain has just been gently acknowledged. Through being heard, and through that acknowledgement, I have found freedom and healing”.
