One of the most common reasons people seek counselling is for relationship issues.


Meaningful and satisfying relationships are a major determinant of happiness and general wellbeing yet many people struggle to develop and maintain them.

Relationship issues can arise within a marriage or intimate partnership, within a family, with friendships and with workmates.
