What is couple counselling?
Couple counselling provides an opportunity to explore patterns, dynamics and conflicts within a relationship and to address issues which are causing stress within it.
Our couple counsellors work with couples in any kind of relationship: hetero-sexual; gay or lesbian; transgender; married or co-habiting; pre-living together; separating or divorcing; love marriages and arranged marriages.
Sometimes people find that their partner will not attend couple counselling and in such cases you may come on your own for individual counselling. Many people do attend alone and still see positive benefits in their relationship.
Violence and abuse is an issue for some people who come to us for help with their relationship. We know that in this situation working with both partners together may not be safe. If this is the case we would suggest that each partner attend individual counselling.
