Relationships are a crucial part of our everyday life. From family members, to work colleagues, we often base our sense of identity and self-worth on the strength of the relationships that we have with those closest to us. When these relationships fail, it affects us deeply, creating a shift in the way that we treat ourselves and others around us.
Relationship counselling is not just about marriage and couple work. All relationships can be challenging at times.
Relationships Counselling provides a safe environment and an opportunity for each person to talk about how they are feeling and behaving towards each other so they can explore alternatives that can help them move forward. Relationship Counselling is an effective way to ensure everyone is heard as bickering leads to anger, resentment and a deep sense of sadness.

Relationship counselling can also be beneficial for individuals recovering from the break-up of a close couple relationship, allowing for a better understanding of why the relationship ended. Having a third party perspective can sometimes help you see recurring patterns in failed relationships and help prompt a personal change.
The way we relate to others in all of our relationships are learned at a young age from our family of origin. We can become stuck with unhealthy, unhelpful attitudes and habits that restrict us from having healthy, nourishing relationships with partners, relations or work colleagues and others we have relationships with.
Nightingale Relationship Counsellors will not take sides, but will ensure both parties have an equal share of time to express their feelings from their perspective. The counsellor will also ensure we respect and acknowledge the other’s point of view and show an empathic understanding of the differences. With our help, you can improve on your relationships, make conscious choices to change how you relate to others and learn new skills in effective communication and compromise.
We aim to ensure that every client feels safe in the knowledge that they have found a professional couple counselling organisation that understands the challenges and concerns they face when they decide to seek assistance to resolve relationships issues. When you contact Nightingale we will respond immediately to all enquiries and can guarantee an appointment within 48 hours. Contact us on 0141 353 9373, Email us or complete our online Enquiry Form.
"I used to think counselling was valuable for other people, but not something I would ever need. Five years into my second marriage, my husband and I were struggling with our relationship and the challenges of step-children. Luckily for us, our eventual frustration led us to Florence. From that first meeting, I felt a sense of confidence in her and in the process of counselling. Through Florence, we learnt to listen to each other, be honest about ourselves and find compromises. It’s hard to talk honestly about difficult feelings, but Florence always made it feel safe. I enjoyed her sense of humour and her direct, no messing approach. I have learnt so much from Florence about relationships, parenting and myself. I will always be grateful for her insight, wisdom and kindness – for me, it has been life-changing."
