Relationship and Marriage Counselling
You would fix the roof of your house if you needed to.
Similarly, it is wise to invest in the emotional well-being of those who live under that roof.
We specialise in relationship therapy and marriage counselling. Come to us if you:
- are dealing with conflict with your partner
- have problems with children or relatives
- or someone is having an affair
- or your partner feel misunderstood
- are angry or have an angry partner
- are worried you might break up
- are needing support through a break-up.
Two of our psychologists, Rachel and Jenny, have trained in Emotion-Focussed Couples Therapy (EFCT) and also in the Gottman Method. Both hold Level 2 qualifications in relationship counselling from the renowned Gottman Institute.
Arguing never transforms conflict. Couples counselling can.

Making a long distance love work is difficult. A few couples manage to do it for a limited time but in the long term, hard decisions need to be taken. Sacrificing your career or security to be together only works if there is a lot of good will on the part of the one making the change. Sometimes you have to let go.
