What happened to 'us'?

Deciding to go to couples counselling can feel like a big step.

It is an acknowledgement that things are not perfect in your relationship and sometimes even the best couples go through rough patches in their marriage.

Fully understanding another person is challenging enough, but add kids, careers, houses, and bills – and somedays it’s hard to remember why you started this journey in the first place.

We can help you be better together.

Are you struggling with:

Couples Counselling
to meet your needs

Premarital Counselling

Start your marriage on a strong foundation. Issues left undiscussed before marriage can lead to challenges after the ceremony.

Premarital counselling can help ensure you and your partner have the tools to build a strong, healthy relationship that leads to a stable and satisfying marriage.

We can give you the support you need to thrive.

Couples or Marriage Counselling

Build the best relationship through communication & connection.

Unexpected issues can leave you struggling to feel connected. Couples counselling can help you navigate past and present issues in order to strengthen the foundation of your relationship.

We can help you communicate while you reconnect in your relationship.

Co-Dependency Counselling

Independence is a healthy part of any relationship.

Codependent relationships may leave you overly reliant on your partner. Co-dependency counselling can help you take the steps to build a healthy relationship with yourself so you know how to build a partnership that works.

We can help you communicate while you reconnect in your relationship.
