How counselling with Chris MacGovern can help me?
If you want to save the relationship, I will work with you to find a way forward. Breath new life into emotionally and sexually dormant relationships. Find better conflict management strategies. Learn to rebuild trust or recover from an affair – Have fun again.

If you are not sure about your relationship, my job is to help you make the right decisions.

Will it work?
A relationship that has been in decline for years will require real effort to change it. The good news is that if you arrive ready to do that work, my experience with my clients is that you will probably succeed.

You can come on your own or with a partner and do not need to be referred.
