Description of treatment
Sometimes a relationship problem becomes too hard to talk about. Perhaps when you try to discuss it, it blows up, or one partner simply refuses to have the conversation. This can be very frustrating. Talking to a couple counsellor, also known as relationship therapy or marriage guidance, can be a help in getting your conversation going again. It can be a relief to each be able to express your point of view safely. A relationship counsellor will be non-judgemental and will not be trying to decide which of a couple is right, or who wins the argument. Mike is known for his calm, patient style of working with couples. If you are having problems, it is much better to address them sooner rather than later.
Mike also often works with individuals on their relationship issues, like getting over a past relationship, or difficulties with assertiveness.
