Seeing a counsellor means you want support in order to be able to deal better with your issues in a safe, confdential environment. You will probably need someone who makes you feel listened to with empathy, without judgement. Don’t you?
What you can achieve from a COUNSELLOR?
Has your relationship became colder?
There are many reasons for partners distancing themselves. Seeing a counsellor will enable conversations to come to light about what is happening, helping to explore different ways of looking at the issue. Whether you come to see a counsellor as an individual or as a couple, either can make it possible. So rather than ignoring the issue, or dealing with it in the same old way and getting the same results, why not find new, more productive ways of dealing with the situation and achieving different, more positive results.
Would you like to give it a second chance?
Relationships are never easy and their comes a time that some couples question if it is just best to walk away. Counselling can provide an opportunity to explore whether there could be a way of moving forward together. For some couples it could be a life line to helping their relationship get back on track, for others a way of finding a new way forward and for some a realisation that walking away is their best option. If the latter is the case, counselling can enable couples to separate in a way that can be more positive for both, especially if they are children involved.
Is there a way to be happy together!
Being happy together is important, but firstly we need to be happy with ourselves. A great deal of clients that come to counselling for help with their relationship, start to question themselves. Many think that the problem is their partner’s, but over time they become aware of the part they are playing. In a relationship it is never one person’s fault. Whether it be conscious or unconscious, we each bring into the relationship patterns and beliefs from our past. When an individual knows himself better, takes responsibly for their behaviour and has greater awareness, relationships become happier and healthier.
