From Mike and Taylor, late 30's, 2 kids: attended 3 couples sessions
"We found the counselling very helpful. I think we were surprised by some things that came out, issues that we didn't dare talk about.
We didn't understand that our different thinking processes created a lot of our problems. Like when he came home from work, I needed emotional support and his mind was still in the workplace.
We both thought the counsellor was very understanding and able to get us over 'bumps' in the conversation."
From Mark and Kelly, both 38yo, were constantly fighting: attended 12 couples sessions
"Thank you for your email. We are doing well. We are actually expecting our first child in a couple of weeks, and we couldn't be happier.
It has bought us closer together - we know that there will be some challenging times ahead but we now know how to deal with."
