"We didn’t know what to expect from couples therapy, but immediately felt safe in Cemaliye’s sessions, and the process was transformational. We came in feeling very stuck in a cycle of conversations that seemed to lead to the end of our relationship even though this is not something either of us wanted. Over the time with Cemaliye she helped us to extract ourselves from this cycle and untangle the issues we were having. Although not easy, the process led to moments of clarity, healing and deeper understanding of each other, and we have learned communication skills that we continue to practice and find helpful. Cemaliye is an extremely kind, level and calm therapist and we are grateful to have worked with her." ~ Testimonials, Couple, London (2023).

Marriage Counselling & Couples Therapy
Our close relationships can be a source of great happiness and satisfaction in our lives, and yet also of great anxiety and isolation if they start to go wrong. If our relationship is in difficulty or crisis, it can be distressing and disappointing, leaving us feeling guilty, rejected or lonely. Very often, couples will seek counselling as a means of enhancing or rescuing their relationship.
"How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be, Let the more loving one be me.” ― W. H. Auden
A Marriage Counsellor or Couples therapist can offer a safe supportive and creative space in which relationship issues can be explored and worked through. This can help to you rebuild your relationship and stay together. However, if you expressly wish to separate, then couples therapy can also help you to do that more amicably. This option can be particularly invaluable if you have children together, and desire that co-parenting be as amicable as possible. See Couples Therapy.
Individual Relationship Counselling
Are you currently single? Have you been in previous relationships that have ended in ways that feel not only deeply painful but confusing and familiar? Our individual relationship therapy provides a safe environment for individuals who recognise and want to work on any 'blocks' they feel may be preventing them from achieving the kind of relationship they want with a partner. Alternatively, you may be transitioning from the end of a difficult relationship and are left hurt, confused and with questions as to why or how it happened - if either of the above descriptions resonate with you, then we may be able to help.
Our approach and aim is to offer a reflective safe space for individuals to develop personal awareness around 'self' and the 'other' through the therapeutic alliance; where it is possible to explore thoughts and feelings related to specific needs and relational issues. Individuals are given time to begin to unravel the knot and gently begin to understand any repeated patterns or impasse's experienced through previous relationship dynamics. This is a process which can enable greater insight into both the conscious and unconscious influences that can contribute to a less harmonious space in the context of a couple. Our approach and specific training in relationship therapy offers a unique focus for individuals who want to work in depth to create positive change related to future romantic relationships.
"I approached Zarden for individual relationship counselling at one of the lowest points in my life. I was deeply unhappy in a relationship but felt too paralysed with fear and ambivalence to make any changes. Cemaliye is a wonderful listener and has an exceptional ability to help you make sense of complex thoughts and feelings..." Testimonials, Individual, South East London.
Individual Relationship Therapy at Zarden can be defined as a safe creative space for enhancing relational maturity and therefore, a process for developing self-responsibility, self agency and an ability to co-create healthier interdependent relationships for the future. From a holistic stance, we believe such benefits are connected to more life-balance and an enhanced sense of overall well being.
"...the remembered past provides us with the means to maintain, or validate, who we are today and to give focus and direction to who we might wish to become at some future point in time.” ― Ernesto Spinelli, Tales of Un-Knowing
Men and women both experience depression but their symptoms can be very different. Because men who are depressed may appear to be angry or aggressive instead of sad. Their families, friends, and even their doctors may not always recognize the anger or aggression as depression symptoms. In addition, men are less likely than women to recognize, talk about, and seek treatment for depression. Yet depression affects a large number of men. Our approach is collaborative and holistic and acknowledges the differences and needs of each person.
