When engaging the services of a Marriage / Relationship / Couple Counsellor, it is vitally important to feel secure in the knowledge that the Couple Counsellor has their roots and expertise in Couple Counselling.
Engaging in Couple Counselling with an unqualified Couple Counsellor can be counterproductive and can often leave clients feeling disillusioned, frustrated and confused. For these reasons, when choosing a Couple Counsellor, you should ensure that they have:

- At least ten years experience of working exclusively with couples and individuals with relationship issues.
- Completed their own personal journey in counselling and are committed to continuous professional development.
- Evidence to support their status as a Couple Counsellor
Deciding to engage in Couple Counselling is a positive step towards achieving and maintaining a healthy balanced couple relationship. All relationships can be challenging at times. Couple Counselling provides a safe environment and an opportunity for the couple to talk about how they are feeling and behaving towards each other so they can explore alternatives that can help them move forward.

- Break negative patterns of behaviour
