What is Couple Counselling?
Couple counselling is for couples who are facing difficulties in their relationships or marriage and wish to be seen together by a counsellor
The counsellor would give you both equal time and attention. This will allow you both to express your story without any interruptions. The sessions will support you to help you look at each other’s world from a different perspective
It is essential that during couple counselling, the other person’s opinion should be listened to and respected, both of you will have an equal amount of time to speak so it is important to let the other person talk without being impolite
