As divorce rates soar, relationship counselling is more in demand than ever. The course develops the counsellor’s understanding of relationship dynamics and the role of each individual. It considers how the needs of each partner can be accommodated, and looks at ways of improving communication within the relationship, introducing compromise or change where necessary. It also looks at relationships where the best solution may be its discontinuation.
