What is a relationship issue?

The problems and challenges of forming and maintaining human connections which give our lives meaning are ubiquitous. Issues can arise in personal, professional or romantic relationships, friendships, or in our families. These issues may arise over conflicts over values, priorities, trust, intimacy, commitment, communication or problematic behaviours. Relationship issues can be caused by a range of factors including personality differences, life transitions and past experiences or have more complex routes in trauma or attachment disorders. Difficulties with relations keep us in a negative cycle that is unlikely to change without help.

How can Portobello Behavioural Health help?

Addressing relationship issues involves developing healthy communication skills, setting boundaries, and working through underlying emotional or psychological issues. Therapists can help individuals identify patterns in their relationships, and develop healthy communication skills, assertiveness, and conflict-resolution strategies. Therapy can also help individuals address the underlying causes such as low self-esteem or past trauma.

Couples or family therapy can also be a helpful approach by improving communication and strengthening relationships. Coaches can provide support and guidance for individuals to set goals, practice their communication skills and work through personal barriers that may be impacting their current relationships. Coaching can focus on developing self-awareness and self-improvement, which can positively impact relationships. Group therapy can also benefit by creating a safe group space for people to work through their historical relationship issues.

How does it work?

Initial consultation
Speak to a member of our team, in confidence, so we can better understand your needs, how we might be able to help and discuss next steps.
Depending on what services we recommend the next step is a formal assessment either with a clinical psychologist or a member of the therapy team.
Define a path to greater wellness
You’ll meet the team working with you and chart a plan to help tackle the problems you are facing. The length of time you work with us will be driven by you and your needs – we will support you every step of the way.
Ongoing care
The path to better mental health and wellness is a life-long process. Our aim is that you will get to a point where you no longer need us. However, our team will always be available to provide ongoing support, advice or additional help should you need it.

Some common questions about relationship issues

Do you accept medical insurance?

We do not accept medical insurance.  In some instances, clients are able to reclaim the cost of our services from theirinsurance companies but we do not deal with insurance companies directly. If additional information is required by a client in making an insurance claim an administration fee is payable.

Do you do therapy online?

Yes. We have a number of therapists who specialise in working with clients online. Get in touch and we can match you up with the most suitable member of the team.

Are you CQC registered?

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) oversees clinical and medical support in the UK.  Portobello Behavioural Health doesn't provide clinical or medical services and so we are not CQC registered. Therapists are registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Heath and Care Professions Council or a similar accrediting body. Case management and coaching are unregulated, non-clinical services. As such there is no governing or regulatory body that oversees this work. Any concerns, issues or complaints should be addressed to

How much does therapy/coaching/case management cost?

The prices for our services vary depending on what is required. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements and we can explain what PBH can provide and how much it will cost.

Where are you based?

We operate from two offices, one in London and one in Guildford, Surrey. However, we provide support to clients across the world through case management, coaching and therapy. This may include remote or online support or it may mean our coaches travelling to clients in their home country.

What do I do in an emergency?

Dealing with mental health problems is turbulent and characterised by repeated crises. PBH is not an emergency service. If you find yourself in a situation where someone needs medical assistance or there is an imminent danger you should call emergency services. If the situation is contained and you require rapid response in the form of case management or coaching please get in touch.
