Why would we need relationship counselling?

Relationship counselling is not about ‘fixing something when its broken’, although this is a common myth.


Relationship counselling is about building a sustainable marriage, a marriage that is built on strong foundations. Topics that are covered in relationship counselling may include:


· Personality differences

· Conflict management

· Family backgrounds

· Attitudes to parenting and money (making sure both parties are on the same page

· Sexuality

· Communication and listening skills

· Life style expectations (where will we live, how will we live, where will we holiday)
