Why do couples leave seeing a counsellor until their marriage or partnership is in trouble when they could seek help to keep it out of trouble?
A troubled marriage or relationship has until recently still been a taboo subject.

Before the advent of online counselling and telephone counselling , physical presence in the counselling room would have been deemed essential to achieve a successful therapy outcome. Now, however, as people spend increasing amounts of time online the counselling profession has needed to adapt in order to meet the demands for a more diverse range of counselling services delivery.
