Relationships, Attachment & Bonding

The relationships in your life play a key role in your happiness, emotional wellbeing and mental health. The term relationship counselling doesn't refer solely to romantic interests; it also encompasses relationships with parents and mentors, friends and co-workers.

Relationships that you've had in your childhood shape the patterns you experience in your adult communication habits. Very often, you wont appreciate just how deep your problems roots might go. Psychotherapy plumbs those depths, finds the root cause and works to improve your relationships for the future.
