inspiring people to rediscover the beauty and joy of a resilient marriage
The link between relationship breakdown and disadvantage is conclusive: separation and divorce have long-lasting negative impacts on both adults and children, and on a wide range of health and socio-economic factors.
The hope and promise of a better way compels us.
Happy marriages take work, but they are definitely possible, and always worth the investment. Our why is about championing that investment – helping couples heal and flourish, find their purpose, and share it with others.
COUPLES IN NEED
a holistic integrative model
Our counselling approach is integrative, non-judgemental, flexible and inclusive. We work with couples by using specific techniques and concepts drawn from a number of theories and models, including Emotionally Focused Therapy, the Gottman Method, and the Litchfield Family Therapy model.
Our support involves helping couples address current relationship stressors, recognise and shift patterns of relating that are creating problems, and encouraging couples to notice that divine grace always walks along with them, toward the change they need and the joy they desire.
