Relationship and Marriage Counselling
You would invest in fixing the roof of your house if needed.
We believe it is wise to invest in the health of the relationships under that roof.
We also 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 Rachel all hold Level 2 qualifications in relationship therapy from the renowned Gottman Institute.
Arguing never transforms conflict. Couples counselling can.
