Relationships can be enriching and great fun, but they usually require hard work as well. We offer sessions for couples, or for individuals to discuss relationship concerns.
We are continuing to deliver counselling for couples and individuals during COVID-19, through telephone and video appointments.
We frequently work with couples in our counselling service. Sessions generally involve a couple working with a counsellor around key concerns they or the counsellor identify. These will often be about communication issues and the impact of recent and past experiences. Couple also frequently come to us for support for conflict and with parenting, grief and loss, managing stress, life changes, financial stress and managing emotions.

We offer individual counselling for relationships in all their aspects. This can include understanding past relationships and how they impact on the present, or reflecting on starting a new relationship. Whatever your concern, we're here to support you. Counselling can help with understanding and integrating your experiences, and moving on.
If you're currently in a relationship, you can attend relationship counselling alone or with your partner. Attending counselling alone can still be very beneficial for your relationship. If your partner decides to also attend sometime later, we can discuss how this can be managed.
