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.

If you are offended by a post or topic please use the 'Flag' button to alert a moderator.

If you disagree with another member of the forum or with a situation, state your case without attacking or insulting others and treat others with respect.

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. This is not online conselling but we do know that it often helps to talk it through and may help you take the next step.
