The Relationship Forum is provided for visitors who are seeking advice and support from the community in relation to relationship issues. The aim of the forum is to help you to understand and explore your situation by talking to others who may be going through, or have experienced a similar situation. The Relationship Forum is moderated by a team of counsellors with lots of experience of helping couples as they work things out in their relationship. They facilitate the forum, providing advice, guidance and additional help wherever needed.

For visitors who may wish to discuss their issue in a more private setting you can visit the ‘Listening Room’. Here you can talk to an online helper, who will help you explore and understand what is going on for you.
