Relationship and Marriage Counselling
You would invest in fixing the roof of your house if needed.
So, we believe it is wise to invest in the health of the relationships 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.
All of our psychologists have training in helping couples. Two of our psychologists, Rachel and Jenny, have trained in Sue Johnson‘s Emotion-Focussed Couple Therapy (EFCT) and also in the Gottman Method. Lynne, Jenny and Rachell hold Level 2 qualifications in relationship therapy from the renowned Gottman Institute.
Arguing never transforms conflict. Couples counselling can.

Low self-esteem can be addressed. You need to understand its origin and address it. You are carrying emotional baggage that is weighing you down and you need help to release it.
Discipling children is challenging and it is difficult to get the balance right. But it is possible if both parents look at their own childhood and how they were disciplined and get in touch with their childhood feelings. Mining your childhood in this way will uncover buried treasure and help you be a better parent.
This is a guest blog by a good friend of NBP, psychologist Karen Nixon. We hope it helps. Yesterday I read how affected some of my Facebook friends are at what Trump is doing. I felt very disturbed, spending the day on the Internet reading the news and a lot of...
Being with an emotionally and physically expressive partner can be challenging especially when you come from a family where this is not the norm.
Having an unsatisfactory relationship with your mother is deeply disappointing. You cannot change her, but you can change how you react to her. It takes some work but it is worthwhile. You can have a peaceful relationship with your mother.
If you have a fear of flying, look at the statistics here that outline your chance of dying in an air crash. You may feel reassured. If you don’t, you have control issues, based on a fear of death, and you need to learn to surrender.
Many people have a fear of flying. Some feel claustrophobic, some feel out of control and quite a few suffer from both. Our approach may seem counter-intuitive, but when clients come to us with a fear of flying, We often take them into the fear. In many years of...
How realistic is family togetherness at Christmas? How many of us realise the dream and have loving, positive interactions with our relatives without any tension or discord? And how many of us have all the important members of our family present? Christmas can bring grief, sadness, estrangement and conflicts.
Overspending at Christmas can turn a good time into a stressful time once all the celebrations are over. Emotionally healthy people do not overspend. They work out what they can afford and stick to it. They are over creative in their gift giving. Lack of money can actually drive creativity.
Alcohol addiction is far too common. Alcohol relaxes our tense muscles and helps us forget our problems. It’s easy to see why it is so addictive. But it also damages our bodies and kills off our brain cells. If we really want to avoid discomfort, especially in the long term, we will value our health.
How we receive gifts can reveal some of our innermost feelings about our self worth. Some people have to reciprocate. Some do not. Some accept graciously and some are critical of the gift. How do people with high self worth respond?
Over the last two years I’ve been dating different guys. None of them felt right. Then I met the one who did. There was a real spark between us and I never doubted for a minute that he wouldn’t call when he said he would. He wasn’t one of those smooth operators, in...
