In Relationship Counselling you gain a fresh perspective about each other and how you relate, and you also learn new ways of being together...
I understand that sometimes, people find it difficult to admit to having problems within their relationship and that they have been unsuccessful in trying to sort them out on their own. It can feel like a big decision to seek professional help for your relationship. However, I have not yet had one couple tell me they regret it, once they have taken the first step. In my experience, problems don’t go away when they are not talked about, they just fester until the relationship falls apart.
A relationship becoming ‘stuck’ is one of the most common reasons that bring couples to marriage counselling; they keep going round in circles, repeating the same unhelpful patterns of communication and behaviour. Without help, it can be hard enough to identify that this is happening, let alone begin to change it without an understanding of what is going on behind it.
Individuals often complain about feeling not being listened to or that their partner misunderstands them. If this continues over a period of time it can lead to feelings of hurt, anger and resentment on one or both sides. Learning to communicate effectively, not only helps overcome any unresolved issues, it also prevents problems from developing in the future.
I offer a safe, unbiased and relaxed space, which will allow you both the opportunity to talk openly and honestly with each other in a way you may have not done for some time.
Relationship counselling isn’t about attributing blame, nor is it about me taking sides or forcing either one of you to take a particular course of action. It’s about helping you both develop a better understanding of each other, yourselves, and the role you both play in the relationship.
This new understanding will help you to continue to build closer, more honest, loving relationship going forward.

Is Your Relationship in Crisis?
A Two Hour Intensive Recovery Session - Fees below
Perhaps something big has happened? Perhaps you have found out that your partner has been having an affair or you have found something out that you weren’t expecting? Or maybe the constant cycle of arguing, misunderstanding and resentment has brought things to a head and you are on the verge of splitting up? When emotions run high it’s difficult to think clearly and find a way forward. A two hour intensive recovery session will enable you both the time and space to talk things through and express your emotions in a calm, non-judgemental, supportive environment. I will help you both to get things in to perspective and enable you to find a way forward in whichever way you decide that should be.
