FUNDED Relationship Counselling Sessions

The unprecedented Covid-19 lockdown is affecting us all in many ways.  Relationships can be particularly hard hit at this time; whether through separation and loneliness, money worries, general anxiety, trying to work from home and home school at the same time or simply being on top of each other 24/7.

Relationship counselling provides a caring, supportive and non-judgemental environment to help people find a way through the difficulties that they are facing.  Our highly trained relationship counsellors are experienced in supporting people of all ages and backgrounds and offer a confidential service.
