Couples and Relationship Counselling
We have all grown up with this fantasy about having another half who makes us feel “complete”.
Then later we meet “The One” only to find it isn’t all it was cracked up to be.
Do you spend a lot of time arguing, going round and round in circles, same old stuff, same old, same old..?
Does one of you want “to talk” and the other one run a mile?
Perhaps you’re both too busy with work, children, other commitments, to want to think about where your relationship’s going,
or, when you do think about it, rush off and find something else to do so that you don’t have to think about it..
Perhaps you’re fed up with feeling controlled – where are you going, when will you be back, who’s going to bath the kids/do the dinner/ washing etc. Clients have sometimes talked of feeling “suffocated” by all that. Not pleasant and definitely not healthy.
Then there’s sex: I want it more often, he/she doesn’t; he/she’s only interested in their own pleasure; he/she wants more kids and that puts me off; there’s no affection any more.. the list is endless.
Seeing a Couples' Counsellor may help. Or, maybe one of you realises that they could benefit from seeing a counsellor on their own for a few sessions to give them some tools to help.

In my years of experience as a Couples' Counsellor have found the key to the healthiest and best relationships – whether in intimate ones, or family ones, or friendship – is - COMMUNICATION. And if things have got a bit out of hand between you, then having a third party who won’t judge you to help you communicate with each other in a way that works is better than constantly being at loggerheads, isn’t it?
Of course, if one of you feels or knows that the other is abusive, that takes a different set of tools. The abuse can take many forms, not just physical violence, and if you want to know if what you’re experiencing is abuse, click here.
