To feel loved, appreciated, safe and connected – isn’t that what we all want? And if we’re no longer in love, don’t we still want our ex to value us, respect our opinion and act honourably? The focus of our centre is to find creative ways to help couples really understand each other through effective relationship counselling, separation discerning, mediation and break-up support. We also see individuals who are looking for high quality counselling that will support, and not undermine, their ongoing relationships.
As therapists, we share a common way of being with clients that brings out the natural personality traits we all hold that brought us to this kind of work. It would be true to say that we’re all gentle, caring and empathetic people. We might have slight differences in the way that we are, but in common we find we are down to earth, and share a sense of humour to keep things real. We will listen to you sensitively and compassionately, in whatever emotional state you are in, for as long as it takes, until you feel heard and understood.
If you’re in a relationship – we will show you proven techniques for solving the never-ending cycle of conflict, or the feeling that you’ll never be good enough for your partner or that they will never put your needs first. Our practitioners are dedicated to helping you discover that it is possible to regain the connection you once felt with your partner.
If one of you is ready to leave, we will use discernment techniques designed to help you both examine if separation is the best step forwards. We need to help you create breathing space that lets you both get on the same page.
If you’re already separated, we offer mediation to help you finalise your time together in a constructive way and help you both to feel empowered as you move forward. The centre can also provide counselling for those finding a break-up too overwhelming, or who need support through the family law process.
