Here at GCA we provide a safe space in which individuals and couples can explore how they feel about, and experience, their relationships with a counsellor who is trained and experienced in working with relationship difficulties.
Relationship counselling is available for couples and individuals over the age of 16 who are concerned about or want to explore the impact of alcohol on their adult relationships. You don’t have to be in a relationship in order to come for counselling. You can come if you are single, in a civil partnership, married, living with someone, separated, divorced, widowed or if it relates to your difficulty in finding or keeping a relationship.
The number of counselling sessions depends on the individual or the couple, but usually consists of six sessions then a review to decide if counselling should continue or finish. This will be agreed between the clients and the counsellor.
The meetings between you and your counsellor are confidential. This means that they stay private unless your counsellor is worried about your safety or someone else’s. If your counsellor is worried about this they will always try and discuss this with you first before speaking with someone else.
