INDIVIDUALS COUPLES FAMILY GROUPS
Whether it’s couples therapy kent or individual therapy skype, our relationship experts offer a wide range of solutions. Working under one roof, all Professionals at Relationship Services work together as a team. This integrated approach contributes to our success in helping individuals, couples and families.
We all recognise that relationships are often complicated by ‘psychological games’. These ‘Games’ are like ‘snake and ladders’, making any professional intervention unpredictable and risky. Therefore, before any useful work can be done, games need to be dismantled expertly, just as you would diffuse an unexploded bomb. Couples in relationships need to be helped to dismantle the games, to increase the likelihood of success.
Transactional Analysis is an approach that addresses these ‘games’. You can download a FREE booklet on Transactional Analysis from here
Using a variety of therapeutic approaches such as Integrative,Transactional Analysis, Transpersonal, Family and Systemic, Logotherapy and CBT, our expertise is in short term, medium term and long term therapy.
For anyone who needs to address personal issues such as agoraphobia, ageing, identity, sexuality, or issues of conscience. These may relate to body or health issues, issues of loss, trust or existential loneliness. Individual therapy allows a confidential, space for you to share your private thoughts and feelings. You may require as little as 6 sessions of individual therapy. Sometimes it may take a little longer and up to 20 sessions are needed.
Individual therapy is also a useful adjunct to couples and therapy work. It enables personal issues to be addressed so that couples and family work is made more effective.
For those who require longer-term work, group therapy is often recommended. This is a more advanced form of therapy and requires commitment to attending a weekly therapy group, often for a couple of years. Group therapy is not suitable for everyone or you might not be comfortable with what it entails. Relationship Services offers both introductory groups and well established groups, as well as occasional, medium term groups for specialist issues.
Sometimes the issues we face are related to our relationships such as abuse, sex problems, trust and belonging concerns, communication issues and work related issues. Couples counselling allows a space for the two of you to speak about the needs of the relationship. You might need help in recovering from an affair or betrayal, feeling lost and isolated, are becoming bored, feeling conflicted when it comes to parenting issues, or have sensitivity to criticism or control issues.
Sometimes you might each need to be seen individually as well as together. Because therapists at Relationship Services work together as a team, we can offer you a range of options, that best suit your needs.
The most complex of therapies. It has to take into account the needs of all the individual members of the family as well as that of the family itself. Children and extended family are part of the mix, and any final solution that works will require every voice to have its say. Families are not easy to define. In today’s world, separated families, blended families and extended families are a norm. Step-children, step-parents, foster families, adopting families, same-sex families…the list goes on and on. No longer can a family be defined neatly as a husband and wife with 2.4 children.
Sometimes children may be exhibiting distress that is self-generated. Sometimes the distress is connected with hidden difficulties within the family or surroundings. The symptoms may be connected to ADD, ADHD, ASD, Demand avoidance, Asperger’s syndrome, antisocial behaviour, poor concentration, anxiety, depression or bullying. Sometimes the family is invited in for an assessment and help may be offered to the child as well as other children and the parents. Even extended family might sometimes require help. The aim is to help the child integrate better within a healthy family.
