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.

If equal affection cannot be, Let the more loving one be me.” ― W. H. Auden
Couples therapy offers a safe supportive space in which couples have the opportunity to explore their relationship difficulties. This can help 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 want to co-parent to be as amicable as possible. See Couples Therapy.
Our specialised focus and training in relationship therapies can help individuals NOT currently in a relationship who may want to work through, understand and heal any historically experienced, possibly repeated, relationship patterns or impasse's. Within this context, our aim and approach offers a reflective safe space to develop personal awareness around 'self' and the 'other' related to prior intimate relationship dynamics and possibilities for creative change through enhancing relational maturity . All associate Counsellors, Therapists and Practitioners at Zarden are highly qualified in their field of practice and registered or accredited members of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) or UKCP. See Couples Therapy.
"...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.
