In general couples tend to seek the help of a Relationship Counsellor when their relationship is at breaking point; and it has usually taken a number of months/years for them to get to this crucial point with the problems building up over time.
Premarital counselling is a great way to prepare you both for getting married or if you are planning on moving in together because it creates an awareness of how these issues can begin. It also helps in raising awareness of the most common pitfalls that can lead to a relationship breakdown.
The feelings you have about your partner develop and mature over time. Having an understanding of the stages relationships go through can really help. You learn the importance of being up-front about how you feel so you can deal with conflicts as they arise and avoid hurts and resentments building.
Whether it’s for the first time or you are making a new start. Premarital counselling is a form of relationship counselling looking at hopes, fears, expectations around marriage or living together.
The aim is to create a firm foundation for dealing with arguments and differences
Understand what each other is bringing to the relationship

Having Sian help us talk through our problems helped us both see each others point of view and see things more clearly. Our marriage is much stronger now that it has been for years – thank you so much.
Byron & Claire
We knew we needed to separate but wanted to do so amicably for the sake of our two children. Sian made this possible by offering us the support through a very difficult time.
Thank you Sian for putting our marriage back on track!
Mr & Mrs Donahue
When my wife suggested that we should see a relationship counsellor but I thought it was a stupid idea and was very sceptical and cynical!. However, Sian made us both feel very relaxed from the outset and she never took sides in any of our conversations. Unfortunately we were not able to save our relationship but Sian helped us through the difficult process and made the separation so such much easier. I would recommend her to anyone who is having problems
Although my partner was reluctant to go for counselling Sian put us both at ease straight away. I was surprised how he opened up and I was able to see things from his perspective for the first time. I know that he understands me more now and with Sian’s help we are closer than ever.
Hayley and John
I didn’t think there was any hope for our relationship as all we did was argue and shout at each other. Sian was so patient and understanding and always saw things from both points of view. We are now at a stage where we can at least communicate without getting angry. We are still working on our relationship but now feel at least there is light at the end of the tunnel.
