Therapeutic services

BH&O LLP recognise that there is a growing gap in the availability of therapeutic services for clients going through matrimonial and family breakdown. We have, therefore, worked with a group of counsellors called ‘Relationships Matter’ to design a package of services that our clients can access alongside their traditional legal services and mediation.

Relationships Matter can offer to our clients various therapeutic services, both individually, and/or as part of a group. (Relationships matter, support through your divorce in Abingdon, Oxon) 

The Relationships Matter team can offer an initial assessment followed by a range of services including one to one counselling and/or a place in the single gender ‘Reflections’ group, designed exclusively for clients of BH&O.

‘Reflections’ is a six week course designed to get clients beyond the anger, fear, panic and grief they experience as their relationship breaks down.

For clients in mediation the counsellors can work with couples alongside their initial consultations, and throughout the process.


We are a team of accredited therapeutic professionals, who between us, have a wide range of specialisms. We are: Lorinda Gamlin, Daphne Carbery, Catherine Sabatini.

Between us, we have more than 35 years’ experience. We are able to work as part of a team with your lawyer to offer emotional support throughout your divorce, separation or family difficulties.

Please ask your lawyer or mediator at BH&O for details
