What is Counselling?
Counselling is:   
  • Confidential, (unless you disclose something illegal, or if you are in danger to yourself or other people, but I will discuss this with you)
  • Respectful, caring, non-judgmental.
  • A safe place for you to be heard and explore the problems that you bring to therapy with a professionally trained person.
  • Working with you to find the solution to the problem by helping you to discover your strengths and ability to find the solutions within you.
  • A time and opportunity to improve relationships and communication.
  • It offers you an opportunity to work towards living in a more satisfying and resourceful way by helping  you to let go of unhelpful ways of being.
  • It can support you in coming to terms with accepting anything that cannot be changed.
  • For individuals, couples, and families.

Have you ever just wondered how those wonderful old couples have managed to stay together for so long? Do you remember when you first became a couple and couldn't wait to be together? Relationship difficulties occur when we start to take each other for granted and we stop doing the little things that we used to do for one another. The quality of the relationship starts to gradually erode and impacts on our ability to communicate, respect, and trust our partners. Relationship counselling can help you to focus on the needs of your relationship and how you can move forward into a more positive space, whether that means 'calling it a day' or working positively towards communicating, respect, trust, and a more fulfilling relationship. If you have children, options can be discussed as to how your parenting can be managed/shared. Call me today and start working towards your goals.
