Counselling is a fantastic way of treating depression, teaching you how to express your emotions and overcome depressive episodes with healthy coping mechanisms. Our team offer a range of depression counselling options including CBT, emotion focused therapy, and more.

Bereavement Counselling

Bereavement Counselling

Losing a loved one can often make you feel a range of difficult emotions, sometimes all at once. Here at Marriage and Relationship Counselling we have experience in helping you through this time with our bereavement and grief counselling services, offering support, help, and advice during this devastating time.

Online Counselling

Online Counselling

Here at Marriage and Relationship Counselling we try to be as flexible as possible for our customers which is why we offer online counselling via video chat for all of our counselling services. We understand that not all of our customers want to travel for an in-person counselling session, so why not opt for online counselling instead?

Services for Parents & Children with Additional Needs

For parents of children with special needs, it can often feel as though there is a distinct lack of support and services to help with your unique emotional requirements. While being a parent of a child with special needs can be intensely rewarding and joyous, like any type of parenting, it can be difficult at times.
With a background in social care, mental health, and nursing, I provide empathetic counselling services to help parents cope with and overcome difficulties regarding acceptance and depression relating to their families.
I also provide emotional support and counselling services to help children and teenagers with special needs tackle problems relating to their emotions, communication skills, speech disorders, and sexuality.
During these services for adults, children, and teenagers, I take a compassionate, empathetic, and open approach to ensure the comfort and safety of you and your child, working at your own pace to achieve you and your family’s emotional, psychological, and communicative goals.
