Online Relationship Counselling and Psychotherapy
Why see a counsellor?
Life can be tough sometimes but most of life's worries can be faced if everything is alright at home. If your relationship is going through a rough patch it can make everything else seem so much harder to cope with. If that's how you're feeling right now, online relationship counselling with me might be the answer.
Here's why. At the start of a new relationship things generally go well of course, but inevitably over time things happen and your circumstances change. For example, you have a child, then another, you move house or change jobs. Some changes are welcome and planned. Others aren't, such as illness, redundancy, ageing. But whether the change is one you want or one you don't, dealing with it can put strain on your relationship while you adjust to your new situation. Counselling provides a time and space to think things through.
My name is Barbara Kelly and I've been a relationship counsellor and psychotherapist since 1997. I work online via Zoom and serve clients from all over the UK and in particular Faversham, Whitstable, Sittingbourne and Canterbury and Ashford as well as further afield. I'm committed to providing a professional online counselling and psychotherapy service in a confidential and non-judgemental environment.
All relationships are different. No two are alike. I will help you think about how you want your relationship to be and help you get there.
I work with people experiencing discomfort or distress in their relationships. I offer either focussed therapy consisting of an assessment session and up to 12 sessions, or longer term, open ended counselling, as appropriate, both with the aim of enabling you to think about what's been happening in your relationship, to identify what's gone wrong and to decide what you want to do about it.
My primary interest is in relationship counselling and psychotherapy but I recognise that relationship problems are sometimes either caused by or lead to other issues, for example anxiety and depression. GP's recognise that anxiety or depression in one or both partners has a profound affect on their relationship and nowadays refer patients for counselling or psychotherapy when this is the case. I'm trained to work with people experiencing anxiety or depression which is affecting their relationship using a model designed by The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships to meet NICE guidelines.
I can help people who are experiencing
- Relationship problems
- Panic attacks
- Problems at work
- Effects from traumatic events.
And what about an MOT for your relationship? We all expect to have our cars serviced regularly, and to get it MOT'd every year. Even though it appears to be running well your relationship needs to be tended too. Come and review your relationship and make adjustments now so's to avoid serious difficulties later.
