What is Couples Counselling?
Couples Counselling is for anyone who is having difficulties in their relationship.
Most of us want to have a fulfilling and satisfying relationship with a partner and can become disillusioned and confused when things feel as if they are going wrong.
Counselling provides a safe setting for couples and individuals to discuss the way they feel and behave toward one another, and to look at how their difficulties have arisen. Past histories and current stresses can play a part in undermining communication and creating conflict.
I meet with clients on a weekly basis to help explore and make sense of what is happening in the relationship dynamic. Thinking about change and moving forward is an important process in couples counselling and with my support new ways are found to manage problems and to communicate more effectively.
Who is Counselling for?
Relationship Counselling is for both individuals and couples unhappy or concerned about their relationship with a partner, a member of their family or work colleagues.
Difficulties can surface for couples and individuals at any time. Often even stable relationships may hit a difficult patch when communication breaks down, poor intimacy develops and false assumptions are made. At this time a relationship counsellor and a client can work together to solve problems and facilitate change.
Relationship counselling for individuals can be helpful to work on issues such as:
- Difficulty in making and maintaining stable relationships;
- Coping with a loss of a partner through separation, divorce or death;
- Managing a relationship when a partner is unable or unwilling to attend sessions
- Sexual problems
- Anxiety and Depression
