How can Couple Connection help you?

Many practitioners tell us that when someone ‘turns to’ them with a relationship difficulty they often are unsure how best  to respond or feel that to do so might be opening a can of worms  beyond their scope of work .

This site provides resources for you and the families you work with, which will help you to offer support . It offers peer support and live chat with relationships counsellors.

It is a free service that provides easy to use information, a peer support service and online brief interventions by trained counsellors.
