Florence GrayCouple therapy counsellor
With over 20 years of experience, I am a leading authority in marriage, couple and relationship counselling. I have had the pleasure and privilege of helping countless couples resolve their differences and re-establish an emotional connection. I am passionate about my work and the changes I help to facilitate.
If anger, resentment, and bitterness have become the hallmarks of your relationship, it can feel like it’s already too late.When communication has broken down and you’re entrenched in unhealthy patterns of behaviour, you may feel like you’ve failed.
The good news? It isn’t too late and you certainly haven’t failed.
How do we know?
It isn’t too late because you’re here. You haven’t failed because you’ve already proven your determination to improve your relationship and overcome the problems you’re facing.
When you’re having relationship or marital problems, it’s natural to want to talk about it. Unfortunately, turning to those around you isn’t always possible or the best option. What you really need is an independent ear — someone who can view your relationship without bias and who won’t take sides. You need an outlet to discuss the things that are difficult to talk about, and the things that you wouldn’t dream of saying to anyone else. Although, couples therapy goes beyond having an unbiased shoulder to cry on. It’s about finding those light bulb moments that allow you to turn blame, rage, anger, sadness and tears into reconnection, relief, laughter, acceptance and love. It’s about helping you find renewed hope for the future.

Training and qualifications
I was originally trained by Glasgow Marriage Counselling Service, the sister company of RELATE. I was selected to train with them in 1999 over a three-year period. I am an integrative couple counsellor which means I draw on many disciplines and methodologies of therapy such as Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Coaching techniques. I also use directed reading, worksheets and homework to increase self-awareness and capture the changes you make in your couple relationship.
Prior to counselling, I had a long and successful career working in Glasgow and London in a variety of large corporate organisations, both as an internal and external consultant. During this time I gained expertise in coaching, training, NLP, consultancy and business development. With this wealth of experience, I’m able to work with individuals, couples, business owners and those in senior management positions in counselling, personal development, coaching and consultancy.
