Relationship counselling

Relationship Counselling can help lesbian and gay people to:

  • understand the relationship they currently share;
  • figure out what they now want from their relationship and from each other;
  • understand how they contributed to making the relationship how it is; and
  • discover and practice new ways of interacting.

Although couple work is the most common type of relationship counselling, clients can self refer to discuss any relationships, for example people might attend with a friend, their mother or father, a sibling, their adult child, an ex-lover or a potential surrogate or sperm donor.

Some couples might choose to engage in a more lengthy therapeutic process such as Emotion Focused Therapy. This requires a commitment of time and energy but has been shown to be highly effective, helping more than 85% of couples to feel happier in their relationships.
