Why Try Couple Counselling?
Every relationship has its ups and downs. But sometimes the downs seem larger, and more frequent, than the good times. Sometimes it feels like you are going round and around in circles, getting nowhere. Counselling is a safe, confidential space that you can talk about the issues you and your partner are going through in front of a neutral, accepting third party. Two of our therapists, Vern and Calista Ward have been married for over 25 years and know how much work it can be – but also how much it’s worth it. They can help you and your partner learn to communicate with one another and help you create a deeper and lasting relationship. Couples counselling may be just what you and your partner need.
