Relationship / Couples / Individual Counselling. COUPLE PICTURE THE ONE

Doncaster based Counsellor. Relationship / Couples / Individual Counselling. Fees: Couples - £40 per session. Individuals - £30

Welcome to South Yorkshire Couples Counselling and Psychosexual Therapy (SYCAPT). My name is Steve Keegan and I am a Relate/Hull University trained Doncaster based Couples Counsellor, Individuals Counsellor, Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual (sex) Therapist.

I also provide therapy to outlining suburbs and nearby towns. I have delivered porn addiction therapy to Rotherham clients and couples counselling to Barnsley clients as both towns are within easy travelling distance to my office.


I am qualified to Post Graduate level as a Couples/Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist with several years experience to date.

Relationship/ Couples counselling is a unique style of therapy that should be practised by therapists that are trained and qualified in this area. In my experience, many couples are presenting for couples counselling when their relationship has hit crisis point. They are either on the verge of splitting up or have already separated and are hoping for a counsellor to tell them what to do to put matters right.
Couples counselling can help people work through their complex feelings at times of crisis and rationalise the decisions that they may need to make, however sometimes the crisis may have been building for some time. Couples may have built up layers of poor communication, lack of trust and a sense of having nothing in common or drifting apart, rather than a specific crisis or event that can trigger needing to speak to a counsellor. This is when early intervention in counselling may be most effective. Unfortunately, couples will often fail to address cracks in their relationship and instead choose to avoid addressing matters out of fear of conflict or confrontation. Couples counselling can be most effective when used for early intervention of relationship difficulties.

Couples counselling is not about a counsellor giving a couple advice or taking sides and apportioning blame to one of the couple, so conflict can be avoided. Counselling allows couples to explore relationship/communication difficulties in a contained, safe space. Couples counselling enables couples to think about matters from the other person’s perspective and reflect on matters explored in the room. It enables couples to understand each other and how their upbringing can affect their attitudes, beliefs, behaviours and communications. It enables people to start to understand one another and to communicate in a more worthwhile manner that allows them to listen, compromise and adjust some views, habits and communication styles. This is why it works so effectively as an early intervention and can help couples avoid the slow and steady build up of difficulties that can become toxic.

Some relationships may be so entangled and stuck that they may need support in gaining space to separate and eventually safely leave each other. Other couples may agree that something needs to change in order for them to go forward and build a stronger more intimate relationship.

The issues that I address within couple counselling sessions relating to clients' relationships can be extremely varied. Below are some of the issues that we look at within sessions:

  • Arguments
  • Commitment to the relationship.
  • Communication difficulties
  • Sexual disagreements
  • Trust and jealousy issues
  • Affairs and betrayal
  • Problems with parenting
  • Feelings of loss and despair when the children leave home
  • Trauma
  • Abuse
  • Domestic Violence ( Discreet appointments can be arranged )
  • Low self esteem
  • Separation and divorce
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Loss of identity
  • Problems with sexuality
  • Issues with step families
  • Retirement concerns
  • Work related problems
  • Adapting to chronic illness and disability
  • Past relationship issues that are affecting the present one.

    Of course, this list is not exhaustive. Please feel free to contact me regarding any concerns that you may have within your relationship.
