Testimonials

 Jake and Sara - "Our marriage was in a mess roughly 5 years after we had the children. We had neglected our relationship, nobody had done anything bad, but we felt something had died. After 2 sessions we had learnt the skill of listening again, it was like seeds of growth were planted, she stopped talking over me. I felt hope had been revived. After a period of 3 months, we completed our work, very satisfied with the support and able to go it alone."

Thank-you. - Jake

 Dean and Maggie - "We met 15 years ago, but after a particularly difficult couple of years, Dean wanted us to go our separate ways because the relationship had become toxic.  He said he didn't us together was working, he couldn't say why. In couples counselling, we explored the problems and were able to resolve 90% of what was not working in our relationship. After 6 months of treatment, we are in a new relationship with each other. We still have disagreements but we look for the win-win."

- Maggie

 Henry and Simone - "I struggled to trust Harry after I found out he had been unfaithful to me during my pregnancy which was 4 years ago. We decided to get some professional help when the gap between us deepened every time I was faced with him being away.  It was destroying our family. Each week we unpicked the hurt and resolved to find forgiveness today, we still wanted it to work, still loved each other enough.  It hasn't been easy and we have returned to counselling over the past 2 years but I found it supportive, insightful, challenging, changing, and healing."

All 85% of Michelle's couples re-connect during the counselling sessions and workshops to move through their problems. They learnt the skills required to get their marriage back on track and to actually start to enjoy being a couple again.

What's different?

The approach is different in it's relational, tailored to each individual couple. There is a clear plan to move forward and to track progress. 

The plan creates a structure to work within and the marriage reaps the benefits immediately.

There is no need to look back unless what's happened in the past creates a block to move forward towards health and healing.
