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 led many couples towards hope & revitalisation of 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.
Relationship troubles? Wondering if anything or anyone could help? You may be feeling alone, and doubtful - full of worry, guilt or shame at being here. But hearing more anger or blame as you withdraw emotionally only prolongs the problem & often makes things worse. It's lonely being in a relationship where the other person no longer feels 'present'. Ignoring the problems doesn't work, rather it pushes them underground where they fester. At this point you may be feeling raw, stressed, isolated, fearful or disillusioned. Tears & frustration one minute, anger the next. If rekindling love and connection is important to you, let's talk.
