|Our main form of counselling. We can provide counselling for you and your partner or for you on your own. You do not have to be married or civil partnered to use our services. We can help if you are having difficulties and want to work them out, if you want to separate, or even if your relationship has ended.|
|Psychosexual therapy is very successful for many couples who are experiencing sexual difficulties, providing they have a steady relationship and ideally attend the sessions together. You do not have to be married or civil partnered. In some cases, we can also offer help to individuals if their partners are unable to attend.|
|Family Counselling is a service for anyone you define as your family - be it your family of origin (your birth family) or your family of choice (family you've had as an adult, not necessarily biologically related). With you we would hope to find the strengths in your family life, as well as preferred ways of interacting which will build on those strengths. Where there are challenges, we believe that it is in the way families interact, rather than the ways individuals behave, which is the most helpful focus of change.|
Children's and young
