FAQs

How much does couples counselling in Edinburgh cost?

The cost of couples therapy in Edinburgh varies depending on the experience of the therapist and the length each session. Sessions generally cost between €30 – €100. Our therapists’ prices are listed on their profile pages.

Can counselling save your relationship?

Yes, in many cases couple therapy can be an effective tool to save a relationship. By working with a therapist, couples can learn new methods of communication, better understand each other’s needs, and resolve underlying conflicts. However, it requires commitment and willingness from both parties.

When is it time for counselling?

Couples counselling – sometimes referred to as ‘marriage counselling’ – is recommended when communication begins to break down, when conflicts become more frequent or severe, or when there is a sense of alienation or unhappiness in the relationship. Seeking help early can prevent these problems from getting worse.

How long does it take to see results from counselling?

Results from couples counselling can vary depending on the specific problems and how committed the partners are to the process. Some couples may notice improvements after a few sessions, while others may need more time.

Do both parties need to be present at each session?

Ideally, both parties should be present at each session to ensure both perspectives are heard and addressed. However, individual sessions can also be useful in some cases.

How do I choose the right therapist for couples counselling?

When choosing a therapist for couples therapy, it is worth considering their experience, training, and treatment methods. It is important to trust and feel a good rapport with your therapist.
