"The meeting of 2 personalities is like the contact of 2 chemical substances; if there is a reaction they are transformed"
Contrary to common thought, relationship counselling can be fun, enlightening, and bring about deep individual change and healing, as well as to the couple, or family relationship.
I charge £50 a session.
Concessions are possible for those on a low income.
Sessions last an hour and are held in a clinic in Bishopston and Clifton.
"We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard, or just think its going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it."
