Our expert says:
It does indeed sound like a relationship with significant problems in it. Relatonship counselling can't stop him from telling lies, or force him to confront his meddling family. What it can do, if both parties sincerely take part in it, is to help him to understand what it is that he and his family are doing, how it is affecting you, how unfair it is, and perhaps to help him to find the motivation to change, if he is capable of doing so. A counsellor can't "MAKE" anyone do anything, but they can help someone do do something they want to do, even if it is hard to do ; and they can help someone to recognize what they ought to want to do.
I also understand your point that the current situation makes it difficult to break up, but it is still possible to do so, maybe not precipitately, but with gradual planning. You can look for an alternative place to stay, maybe to share with someone else who works where or near where you do, with whom you could also share a ride, for instance.
