My wife and I trying to sought out our problems before we get drawn into the divorce pipeline.
I would really appreciate your experiences if you have tried couple counselling. I would be interested in which organisations you chose, how you found the counselling process and if there was variation in the counsellors and their approached.
I know of Relate, have heard of Marriage Care but know nothing about them and how they operate. Any other organisations would be useful as well as experiences of counsellors that work by themselves.
Mentioning the year may help to see if recent counselling is better than that of 10 years ago.
Mediator told me to take things slowly, we'd had seperate lives for a few years. That was 8 months ago, mediation got nowhere, the only person to gain was the mediator (a solicitor....theres a pattern emerging here!!) which cost me over £400
Counselling did not work for my partner. He tried a number of years ago after his wife admitted a number of affairst try and save their marraige. Unfortunately you both need to want to save the relationship to make counselling work.
