Carole Nyman  HG.Dip.P. MHGI Relate qualified

Based in East Finchley, North London (N2)

Carole Nyman is a Relate qualified couples counsellor who specialises in helping couples who deep down may still love each other but have found themselves either drifting apart or going down a path that may lead eventually to them having real difficulties or even splitting up. They learn how to enhance their relationship by applying the sound, common sense principles of the Human Givens approach. This enables them to communicate calmly and to operate as a team. They begin by doing enjoyable things together, they learn how to think of each other’s needs and how to calm down themselves and each other when they disagree. This leads to them experiencing greater intimacy as a couple, less conflict and more fun together.

Carole has been married herself for 27 years and is a mother of two grown up girls, so she knows first-hand that relationships and family life can be challenging at times. In her previous work, she had been a practicing solicitor specialising in divorce and family law and she says that she finds this work more satisfying as her current clients leave her feeling happier and more connected.”
