Are you struggling within your relationship? Does your relationship feel like its breaking down around you? Arguments? Conflict? Indifference, lack of love or mutual Understanding? Relationship Counselling can support romantic couples and extend to dynamics that may include parent and child, siblings and recently separated couples working through closure.
Couples counselling is not without its challenges! Both people need to put in the work and complete transparency and at times alot of vulnerability make be required to achieve this. However the transformation for couples who do work together.......the stronger communication, rebuilt trust, higher levels of intimacy. I have seen couples close to giving up after infidelity only to say months later that it was the best thing that happened because it had brought them closer. Their relationship was stronger following the counselling process than it had ever been.
I am a trained and experienced Relationship Counsellor who is able to work with couples to identify underlying issues within the relationship, facilitate the communication process and work with you both to achieve a stronger unit that acknowledges the needs of both people.
