Richard Cole - EFT Relationship /Psychosexual Counselling Hove. UKCP COSRT
I work with couples who want to have an honest look at what is going on in their relationship - no matter what it is - to move towards creating the kind of relationship they want.
What is Couples Counselling?
- I work with you and your partner together in a way that you can move beyond what's stopping you from understanding each other.
- Couples counselling is a powerful process which gives you new a way of looking at current issues.
- Most couples find it a huge relief to speak about what's been difficult to talk about and feel understood. Resentments,hurts and breaks of trust can be healed.
My Couples Counselling Approach
I understand that it can feel like big step coming to talk about your relationship and often one partner is keen and the other is resistant. I create a safe environment where:
- You both have time to express what you want and to see what the issues are
- Your partner begins to hear what you are saying and vice versa
- You see the bigger picture of what is going on
- You learn communication skills
- You learn about your differences and what you both need
- You find out what is important to you
- You see how to bring back intimacy and loving feelings
- You learn how to manage your emotions and look after yourself better
- You find out how you can set limits over what you will accept and what you won't from your partner.
I use emotionally focused Couples Therapy (EFT). I’m a UKCP accredited psychotherapist. I have completed a specialist training in sexual difficulties and couple counselling and as a participant completed an in-depth sexual grounding training.
I use the principles of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help you feel more emotionally connected to your partner.
I work with sexuality, lack of desire, "I love you, but I'm not in love with you" relationships and sexual issues following College of Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy (COSRT) code of ethics and guidelines.

"We went to see Richard due to difficulties in our communication regarding many issues brought on by this being our second marriage. At the time it felt as it was make or brake situation. Richard's skilful approach and his understanding helped and guided us. Within a few weeks we were fully aware where our problems laid and were able to successfully work on them.We are still ripping the benefits of his counselling three years on. His counselling has helped us to grow into more responsible and compassionate people, he helped to release the guilt and resentment that we felt. He helped us to discover for ourselves the importance and value of our relationship and also helped us to bring harmony and order into relationship with other members of the family. For his perception, understanding and compassion, we highly recommend Richard to anyone who faces any form of difficulties in their lives." Gosha and Michael

"I had the fortune of meeting Dr. Richard Cole last year. I had to write a feature story as an exercise for my journalism studies, and was warmly welcomed in Dr.Cole's studio. He was very helpful, polite and easy-going. His interview gave a boost to my piece, as his knowledge regarding relationships proved to be first class."

"Excellent, and objective relationship counselling. It was invaluable having a 3rd party assess, challenge and playback our relationship dynamic. His process made us both reflect alot more and in overall terms helped to progress and improve the relationship."
