Couples/Marriage/Relationship Counselling

Couples/Marriage/Relationship Counselling Managing a relationship in the aftermath of a personal trauma can be very difficult. Especially when current problems are being avoided or ignored by one partner in the relationship and it is hard to carry on alone with all the responsibilities of every day life to cope with. It is challenging to try and want this relationship to continue in the hope some how it will all work out eventually, if only you could turn the clock back and start again. The reality is you cannot, but instead live in hope it will change as we lead busy life styles filled with responsibilities and stresses that caused the partnership to drift apart. I offer a service to support both of you. Difficulties can happen at any life stage in a relationship.  Some couples request to work together as an alternative to working separately.
