High quality couples therapy at Priory Wellbeing Centre Canterbury

Another service that we are able to offer at Priory Wellbeing Centre Canterbury is expert couples therapy for individuals and couples who are experiencing relationship problems.

There are many reasons why a couple may decide to talk to a mental health professional, and relationship problems may centre around a whole host of different issues, such as:

  • Coping with a betrayal or an affair
  • The loss of a close family member
  • The loss of a child
  • Illness
  • Financial difficulties
  • Redundancy
  • Retirement
  • Infertility
  • Addiction
  • Sexual problems

The decision to seek help can often be a difficult one and can bring about feelings of fear and shame. However, at Priory Wellbeing Centre Canterbury, we provide a professional and safe environment in which everyone can feel comfortable and able to address the problems that are impacting on their relationship. Our couples therapy offering is suitable for:

  • Married/cohabiting couples
  • Same-sex couples
  • Older couples
  • Trans-cultural couples
  • Those with a sexual identity issue, for example transvestism

Experienced psychotherapist, Salma Rashid, is Canterbury’s couples therapy lead. Her approach is guided by psychodynamic psychotherapy and she also specialises in mentalisation-based therapy, especially for conflict resolution within the family setting. Salma provides the chance for couples to attend joint or individual therapy sessions, so that they can explore issues in a shared or more private setting. In 6-20 sessions, Salma explores in detail what influences behaviour, thought patterns, processes and emotional experiences in relationships, allowing couples to address the underlying causes of their relationship problems and move towards a more positive future.

“Once a consultation is booked and the couple arrive to their appointment, they often experience a sense of relief when they begin the process of talking to someone who provides guidance and support in exploring difficult and painful issues. Speaking to a therapist can often bring a sense of understanding to difficult and stressful situations, brought on through life's journey.” Salma Rashid
