COUPLES + INDIVIDUALS
What is relationship counselling?
Relationship counselling is focused on how to help improve the important relationships in your life.
Working with one of our counsellors you will find a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to discuss past and present issues. Once those issues are explored and understood, you are then able to consider ways to improve and build those relationships.
Why is relationship counselling beneficial?
Each individual is unique and so are the relationships they experience every day. Similarly, counselling is unique to each individual and couple.
Counselling sessions consider how we behave, why we feel certain emotions and why we respond to certain emotions and experiences the way we do.
This includes considering experiences from early childhood or other past relationships which may be negatively affecting our relationships in the present.
Exploring those experiences gives you a clearer understanding of how they have impacted upon you, your relationships and ways to manage them.
Appointments are available and 95% of our clients attend relationship counselling within 2 weeks of contacting The Spark.
Daytime, evening and Saturday appointments are available.

How does relationship counselling work?
Sessions typically last for 50 minutes to 1 hour with a trained counsellor. The counsellor will ask some questions about you and your relationships and what you would like to achieve with counselling.
Typically the counsellor will ask you questions about your experiences and how you are feeling. If you are not comfortable talking much it might take other forms like drawing or writing down your thoughts for example.
In all cases, you will find a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
