Relationships & Couples Counselling
The connections between family, friends, work colleagues, romantic partners and individuals who we encounter in our lives are all governed by different styles of connecting and can have different challenges.
Relationship breakdown, poor relationships and estrangement can be explored in relationship counselling with the aim to achieve stronger connections, or to determine what is appropriate for the relationship going forward. If the relationship is found to be no longer viable, dealing well with its dissolution is a worthwhile goal in therapy, especially when there are others who will be impacted by the dissolution, particularly children and relatives.
Relationship counselling is not necessarily problem focused. Individuals can undertake relationship counselling to advance and optimize their relationship, which may contribute to improved quality of life and sometimes improved general health and mental wellbeing.
The fluctuations of life often challenge us and our relationships. We may have entered into a given relationship with assumptions, dreams and expectations which have not remained constant. As elements of ourselves, our circumstances, and the contract of our relationship change, we may need to re-define and re-negotiate the nature of that relationship.
Counselling can provide an open, safe, objective space for the members of the relationship to analyse the situation, explore the options, set realistic goals, acquire new skills to deal with the situation and to determine the best way forward.
