Cornish couples are being urged not to put too much pressure on themselves this Christmas.

Experts tell us break-ups soar at this time of year because of stresses like overspending and entertaining.

Bodmin counsellor Marie-Louise Rolfe understands it can be a tough time: "They do say sometimes it is the season to be stressed for a lot of people and we need to look into the reasons why really. If you think that the displays of wealth and the perfect meals and the perfect gifts; it all adds to the pressure."

She has three suggestions to try to manage stress and avoid family rows:

1)  Communication: Share your feelings with that person or a person you trust if you are feeling stressed.
2)  Manage your expectations: If you're not expecting something to be amazing but you're just going knowing that        everyone has quite a stressful time at Christmas trying to get everything organised, it should help you feel less       pressured.
3)  Be thankful. If you are spending time with family or close friends, try to remember that not everyone is that lucky       and many people could be on their own or feeling lonely.
