Relationship Assessment

Good relationships are good for you. People in supportive, loving relationships are more likely to feel healthier, happier and satisfied with their lives and less likely to have mental or physical health problems. Most people want to have a stable long-term relationship but the statistics show that it is difficult to achieve.  One in three first marriages ends in divorce as do two in three second marriages. Recovery from a marital/relationship breakdown is usually slow.

It often takes two to three years for a couple whose relationship has broken up to put their lives back together again. After splitting up, many people say they wish they hadn't. Four out of ten people regret their divorce five years later and say with hindsight that they think it could have been avoided.

How could divorce have been avoided? A successful marriage or partnership requires knowledge and skills about how to create and sustain a stable relationship. that will improve and enrich their relationships.

Relationship Counseling can provide:

  • simple techniques to help you make dramatic improvements in the way you communicate and support each other
