Couples Counselling in Unprecedented Times
You may have read in the news that many couples are finding their relationships particularly challenging during lockdown and, as a result, have decided to part. However, before things get this bad seeking professional help, where you can discuss your feelings together in a safe environment, may well enable you to save your relationship.
According to Relate, some couples have found themselves in 'turbo relationships', having moved in together just before lockdown and finding the close quarters cause things to move at a faster pace than usual. While some of these relationships are flourishing, around 14 per cent of couples have decided it's time to part ways. Relationship counselling can help with these difficult times.
Relationship Issues in Lockdown

Lockdown With Your Partner
Lockdown is a challenging time for couples. If you and your partner are struggling to get along at the moment, this relationship advice from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy may help you to communicate better and then get back on track.
