About the counselling...
"I liked the idea of performing exercises as a couple. It helped me with self-reflection and to understand our relationship better, including things to avoid doing"
"We now have better communication and fewer arguments"
"It helped to reduce our negative lens and shift it to a more positive perspective on our relationship. Practical actions to take from each session to work on until the next appointment was helpful, and it allowed time for the work and new habits to develop"
"The individual report and diagnostic on opportunities of improvement was extremely helpful for us as a couple"
"Counselling has provided us with lots of different ways to be more connected as well as giving us a regular way of ensuring we are on the right path through a lot of healing. I have noticed I have improved my self-confidence and let go of a lot of things from the past"
"My confidence and awareness of self and recognition of behaviour patterns in me and others has been supported MASSIVELY by the sessions with Karin. It's meant I can trust myself and my instincts again, and I'm happier and safer than I have been in almost a decade"
"We liked the structured approach and that it gave us something to work on each week"
"She provided a good structure to the trauma of separating"
"The sessions have helped us find our path back together again. It was easier to communicate with a third party listening"
