If your relationship isn’t quite working as you’d hoped, perhaps consider seeing me for Relationship Counselling?
Today, people are trying to fit more into their lives – family, work, finances, etc. and sadly the breaking point can be their relationship.
But there are solutions that might be able to save the relationship and beyond that actually help you live a much more pleasurable and harmonious life together.
Do you feel that you and your partner are no longer working with and for each other, instead you now seem to be working against each other?
Here are some other common relationship sticking points:
- Changes in levels of intimacy
- Being frustrated at your partner
- The feeling that you aren’t being heard
- A loss of fun
- Feeling lost in the relationship
- Feeling unappreciated
Perhaps you’re in a relationship that has a basis in Emotional Dependency. Find out more about that here.
Often couples are caught up in a game of Tit for Tat, a potentially very damaging exercise that can send the relationship spiraling out of control.
I have written an article on Tit for Tat games that you can read here.
The fact is, people who are in relationships that aren’t running perhaps as smoothly as they would like generally have three choices ahead of them:
- Maintain the status quo and hope it gets better by itself
- End the relationship
- Repair and improve the relationship
My approach to Relationship Counselling is one of working with both partners as individuals, but then also as a couple.
It might not come as a great surprise, however, one way of potentially helping your relationship is through the use of better communication.
I generally use and teach elements from Transactional Analysis to help couples hopefully find better ways of communicating. More details on that strategy can be found here.
For example, I can help you develop new skills that will hopefully ensure both of you are speaking in a way that works effectively for both of you.
I understand that it may not be easy to reach out and ask for some assistance, however, I can assure you that my approach is warm, welcoming, non-judgemental, and solutions-focused.
If you would like to make an appointment with me, either by yourself initially, or with your partner, please make a booking here.
