“How will relationship counselling improve my situation?”

Healthy relationships are critical to our mental well-being. However, a brain tumour diagnosis can cause a strain on healthy relationships and on confidence to form new relationships.

Our highly- skilled counsellors focus on a relational approach to provide a safe and confidential space to talk about the issues that have made you seek therapy. Relationship counselling is an effective and crucial intervention, especially where there is continuing relationship distress for a prolonged period of time. However, it can also provide the tools to navigate relationship pressures, and prevent relationships falling into crisis when individuals, couples or families reach out for support early.
