About

Does your relationship need renovating? Would you like more intimacy, romance, understanding & appreciation? Perhaps you’re grieving the loss of a once happy relationship & wondering how to get 'back on track'. Closeness with others is at the core of our well-being. Carolyn's specialised training in relationship counselling & 'lived experience' has helped many couples revitalise & strengthen their relational bond. She offers best practice evidenced-based methods within a deeply caring, empathic & safe space. It's challenging making that 'first step' to ask for support, but relationship distress is common & help within reach.
In person & Telehealth counselling for couples & individuals - also offering an approved pre-marital counselling program. Helping you develop healthy communication, 'actively listen' to each other & make 'repair' after an argument. Together we identify your specific relationship strengths & challenges, to formulate achievable goals.
"No human relation gives one possession in another - every two souls are absolutely different. In friendship or in love, the two side by side raise hands together to find what one cannot reach alone." ~ Kahlil Gibran
