What is relationship counselling


Relationship counselling is a talking therapy where we work together and address any relationship issues which might be causing conflict, uncertainty or distress. I look to offer a safe haven for couples to express their needs and fears and to work towards resolving anger and conflict. This allows you both to be heard and listened to and encourages equal voices to highlight understanding. Couples can aim to work towards moving forward without blame. I also work with individuals who wish to look at their relationship patterns, seek understanding and look for ways to move ahead.


What comes next

scalesAfter your call we will arrange an initial consultation followed by appropriate further counselling sessions where we look to build a positive therapeutic relationship within a safe and comfortable environment.
