Claire Colbert met with Debbie Miller, Relationship Therapist, to understand more about how counselling can support individuals who are going through relationship breakdown, separation and divorce. We wanted to understand how this service can help our clients who are often dealing with emotional, practical and legal consequences of the relationship breakdown.

We wanted to understand from Debbie how best we can prepare our clients and they can prepare themselves for individual counselling following relationship breakdown.
