Celia Hardwick

I'm a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist, having worked full time as a counsellor for over 20 years, in the NHS, charitable and private sectors. I'm registered with the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I'm trained by, and am on the leadership team of, BEFT (British Association of Emotionally Focused Therapy). I am certified by the ICEEFT (International Centre of Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy).

I am married and a mother of 4 adult children. I am DBS checked and have NSPCC training in safeguarding.
If you're hurting and unhappy in your relationship or family, have hit a crisis, or are going around in repeating patterns of conflict or disconnection, come and see me for some help. We all have the human need to feel loved and securely bonded in our relationships. EFT is a wonderful model with a clear map. It'll help you to understand what's gone wrong, and guide you in how to reach out and find each other again. Celia

 The first session is about getting to know and understand you, discussing how we will work, and starting to explore what is happening in your relationship.

With couples, the second and third sessions are individual sessions, one with each of you, looking at relationships throughout your life, including your current one.

The fourth session is together again. We will begin to explore your relationship more deeply.

On rare occasions we won’t continue working together after the fourth session. This may be for ethical reasons or because couples therapy might not be the right kind of support for you at this time.

Usually after the fourth session I will continue to meet with both of you together for the duration of the therapy.

Number of sessions: 

This depend on how complex your problems are and how receptive you are to therapy. EFT couples counselling generally takes between eight and twenty sessions. Family therapy tends to be shorter.
