What is Relationship Counselling?
Most people at some point in their lives will become stressed or feel that life is generally getting on top of them. Whereas family and friends can be great at lending a listening ear, relationship counselling offers a non-judgement and more professional approach. Someone whom you know will hold whatever you say, with the utmost confidentiality.
Often, we may not even be aware of our own thoughts, let alone feel able to discuss them with a close friend or family member. This is where counselling is often able to offer you something different. Our experienced and fully qualified counsellors are able to discuss a wide range of relationship issues.
Sometimes individual relationship counselling can happen as a stand-alone process. Whereas sometimes it can be an important part of the process that takes place either before or during couple’s work. Whatever your need, we have experienced and fully qualified counsellors available.
Some subjects that may come up include:
- Sex addiction.
- Pornography addiction.
- Love addiction.
- Co-dependency issues.
- Life Issues
- Anxiety and worry
- Career issues
- Domestic Violence and Abuse
- Jealousy and trust issues

This is just a small part of a much larger list of things that can be discussed within relationship work. It is important to recognise that we are all individual and will therefore all have different needs.
We are entirely able to work with all types of sexual diversities, including Heterosexual, Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and other sexual diversity couples and individuals.

Couples or Marriage Counselling
It is common for many people in long term relationships, to experience periods of difficulty. This is true even of the most well suited of people. There are many reasons why this may be the case, such as bereavement, financial challenges, infidelity or stress.
Family Therapy can be an important form of therapy that can help support family dynamics.
It is a process that helps family members support one another. It also offers a safe and facilitated space to express challenging thoughts and feelings. Often we also build on existing family strengths.
