Cornish relationship counsellors are braced for a January rush.

A record number of couples are expected to sign up for help this week.

Across the UK there has already been a 52% increase in people asking for help, compared to December.

It is thought family pressures, finances and New Year resolutions are behind it.

Bodmin counsellor Louise Whitehead said:"This time of year tends to highlight whether the relationship is really water tight or whether there are cracks. People tend to have a lot of blame and criticism this time of year unfortunately.It tends to be a time of reflection when people look at each other and think, 'Do I really want to spend another Christmas with this person?'

"Try and understand where the problems are coming from and when they started. Start to talk to one another. Every day have some quality time, even if it's just ten minutes, checking in with each other, seeing how they are and listening - and ultimately being patient."
