Counselling for couples Counselling for couples

Couple counselling is about putting your relationship at a central point, being able to communicate together and for both of you to feel heard and understood.

How can I help?

It is about offering you a range of useful strategies and supportive ideas, to look at what has changed in the relationship you once had and what you would like to bring back, looking at doing something different to make a difference for you.

I can help you whether you are in a new relationship or a long term relationship.

Attending couple counselling can help you at a time when you are experiencing difficulties in your relationship, these can be past difficulties or current difficulties, or it can be about preparation for a new relationship together.
