Scottish Government advice now allows face-to-face appointments with guidelines in place. We use counselling rooms that are either used by NHS services or are owned by other organisations, and these are not available for us to use yet.
We continue to offer telephone counselling as well as Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime appointments for both individuals and couples. To do this, please click on the Appointment Form link.
If you feel that you would rather wait for a face-to-face appointment, do let us know by phone or email. We will keep you updated, and put you on our list, ready for when the situation changes.
- 'I think my partner is having an affair'
- 'We are drifting apart'
- 'I want us to be closer'
- 'My partner is drinking too much'
- 'I have lost my desire for sex'
- 'We argue all the time'
- 'Stress is affecting our relationship'
- 'I find it hard to say how I really feel'
- 'My past is affecting how I live now'
These are some of problems most couples & individuals encounter at some point. Being in a relationship is rewarding and fulfilling but anyone can experience difficulties regardless of their age, the length of time they have been together, or their circumstances.
Working with a Relationship Counsellor gives you, and your partner a chance to think about what you can do to change your situation for the better. Counselling can put things into perspective, help you learn how to deal with difficult situations and restore balance to your family life. Counselling can give you an opportunity to explore complex and difficult issues that may seem overwhelming and too much to cope with on your own. We can help you communicate more effectively with your partner and other family members.
Relationship skills can be learnt, and it can help to talk about relationships with a Counsellor who has extensive knowledge of how they can work better.
