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
- Not feeling that your opinions and emotions are being validated
- Being frustrated at your partner
- The feeling that you aren’t being heard
- A loss of fun
- Feeling lost in the relationship
- Feeling unappreciated
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
Option 3 is probably your preference, but do you have the skills to correct the issues without expert support?
My approach to Relationship Counselling focusses on helping you grow greater awareness of each other, develop resilience against future stresses, and for you to have the skills to better navigate life together.
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.
We also identify your Schemas, and there is a big focus on developing and using Validation.
No two couples are the same though, so I will tailor my approach to you around who you are and what your particular needs/circumstances are.
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-judgmental, 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.
