Emma and Sunil kiss and make-up ahead of planning their son's naming ceremony, but with Leah's sights firmly fixed on Sunil, the young couple might not be playing happy families for long.

There is no chance of a quick fix for Dai's marriage either, especially when Paula considers turning her night away from home into a permanent arrangement. However, Alan nurses the worst wounds after learning that his one true love - the rugby club - is closing down.

With all that heartache, what the Pontyberry residents need are some wise words of guidance. Peschman, a Dutch life coach, uses a unique form of therapy to support Stella and co through their toils and troubles.
