Our greatest joy and our greatest pain comes in our relationships with others”

Stephen R Covey


Hello I’m Marion Laird and for 20 years I’ve been helping people, to change their lives for the better and create loving caring positive relationships.

Relationships are at the of heart happiness, they affect the way you feel and impact on all areas of your life, such as partner, family, work, leisure, addiction, coping and stress.  Difficult relationships can make us very unhappy, hurt and angry and can even cause illness.

One in five say their relationships is in distress and higher if you have children.

Having experienced difficulties in my own life and attending therapy gave me the desire to train as a therapist.  These experiences have helped me develop a deep understanding of the problems that can make your relationships difficult.  Clients tell me I am warm and approachable, as we work together find talking helps even, with the most difficult issues, and to understand themselves and those around them.

To help relieve your distress, please pick up the phone and we can have an initial chat to see if relationship counselling can help and I can offer a free 30 minute appointment to help identify a way forward. I am on 01324 804408
