I understand what triggers my anger and have learned to accept frustrations and deal with them in a way which avoids rage. I found that being able to off load my worries, pain, incomprehension about my relationship was in itself very helpful. Talking with someone who had no personal connection with me and who asked thoughtful and probing questions enabled me to see things from other points of view and to understand myself and my partner better. I now cope much better with problems in my relationship...... I know that without the skill and objectivity of my counsellor in really making me think and re-examine myself I would still be where I was 6 months ago". Client testimonial
