Relationship Counselling Palmerston North

Palmerston North Counselling

Couples counselling

Are you looking for a couples counsellor in Palmerston North?

My name is Gail Bartlett-Harris. I have been working with couples on their relationships since 2004 and was accredited to do Relationship Counselling and Mediation by the Family Court in 2008.

My ability to build rapport with both parties and recognise underlying emotions and dynamics places me in a strong position to help.

Relationship and marriage counselling

Relationship and marriage counselling can bring clarity, direction and relief. Sometimes it’s difficult to struggle through the piles of unresolved stuff – or to re-gain a sense of why we entered into this relationship in the first place. Things can be cloudy and we can get lost. Heartbreak can follow and sometimes the heartbreak involves children too.

Adding a non-judgemental facilitator to the discussion; someone who can listen out and be on the side of your relationship is invaluable. In session tensions can be eased, conversations can be slowed and defences will come down. When your relationship hits a rocky patch, I can facilitate conversation that will lead you into the clear.

Friends and family are good support – but they always have an agenda (however well meant). I’m on your relationship’s side and I will help both of you see your way through.

Step into my Quiet Room

Step into my Quiet Room away from your everyday pressures and let me lead you towards clarity and connection. I have seen amazing ‘come-backs’; couples on the brink of separation finding the love they lost sight of again.

Relationship counselling is my favourite time of the day! There is so much hope in it. Help me to help you. Contact me.
