Relationships can be one of the most fulfilling and pleasurable areas in your life but they can occasionally become full of tension, resentment, conflict and arguments. I provide counselling for individuals and couples to identify and work through relationship difficulties creating positive and more fulfilling ways of relating.
Your counselling session will be confidential, providing you with space for exploration and reflection. More often than not it will provide a fresh perspective on your relationship creating opportunity for positive change and a more fulfilling relationship .
We might focus on:-
- Communication Skills and constructive behaviour.
- The influence and role of your family background.
- Your expectations of your partner and family.
- Your relationship patterns.
- How you want the relationship to work.

Domestic abuse is a pattern of abusive behaviour by one or both people in a relationship. There are many different forms the abuse can take, including physical, verbal, psychological, sexual, emotional, threatening, intimidating or involve deprivation. Domestic violence is not a private matter it is a criminal act and therefore is not an issue that should just be kept between the two people in the relationship. The first practical step to take in abusive relationship is to tell someone. Discovered early enough, it may be possible to salvage the relationship and prevent the situation spiralling out of control through counselling and other support programmes.
