Relationships can be difficult to sustain over time. Whether you are in a new relationship or have been together for decades, counselling can revamp or revive your relationship. When boredom sets in, or infidelity is an issue; when you just can’t see eye to eye the inability to communicate may have taken over.

If you’re experiencing difficulties in any of the areas listed below, you’re not alone. When problems arise in these areas, couples often seek help.















Part of the process of relationship counselling is to assist with communicating skills and to understand the communication styles to avoid. This will assist you to come to fresh deeper understandings about each other and about yourself.

The Gottman Method Goals for Couples counselling is to disarm conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.

Do not be like most couples and wait for years before seeking couples counselling STOP living in misery. Your relationship doesn’t have to die! You do not have to continue to lie awake at night in that state of pain, dissatisfaction and loneliness.
