Couple support

For adults experiencing difficulties in their relationship; whether you are a couple or an individual, married or in a partnership, separated, divorced or divorcing, straight or gay. Whatever your age, race or social background; we work with lots of problems such as affairs, communication issues, unsatisfying sex lives, getting used to step-families, balancing work and home, depression and money worries.

For mature couples facing a readjustment to their relationship in mid and later life can be quite difficult. Children may be flying the nest or you’re facing up to retirement. You may be suffering the physical and emotional aspects of the menopause or going through a mid life crisis, or after putting so much effort into family and work life, you suddenly discover that the last time you had a conversation about yourselves was years ago

For parents, adapting to life with a new baby or the demands of growing teenagers can put a strain on family relationships. We can help you to put things in perspective, learn how to deal with difficult situations; restore balance to family life and help you keep important time aside for you and your partner.

“We began to talk again. Our Counsellor was wise, impartial, subtly directional, amusing and sensitive”
“The entire experience was very new to me and my partner, I will always look to counselling in the future, it really was a great help and really worth the money.”

Ideally, you should go to counselling together: it's hard to build a team if only half the players are there. Often, if one person makes the decision to give counselling a try, the partner will decide to go too.

If your partner doesn’t want to join you, there are lots of things counselling can help you sort out on your own. There may be changes you can make alone that will have a positive impact on your relationship. Some people also prefer to have counselling on their own at first to work out their feelings before seeing another counsellor together.
