Couples and Relationship Counselling

Relationships are a major part of life. When our relationships fail to thrive, we struggle as individuals.

Just as every individual is unique, so is every relationship. Counselling will provide a safe and confidential space for couples, regardless of marital status or sexual orientation, to explore any difficulties which may be experienced in the relationship. It can provide a space for you each to hear the other and be heard. A space where actions and reactions can be paced and explored.

A safe space can help a couple recognise and come to terms with being incompatible in a safe space and can help decide what is the best way forward for both of you.

Couples may stop communicating for a number of reasons, including:

  • Miscommunication

  • Arguments

  • Children

  • Fertility issues

  • New parents struggling to cope

  • Conflict

  • Sex and sexual differences

  • Affairs

  • Separation

  • Divorce

  • Life changes

  • Loss

  • Extended family dynamics

  • Feeling stuck

  • Life events

 

Couples counselling can help to work through a number of issues and revive, repair or rekindle a relationship or, if necessary, can provide a means to separate as amicably as possible.
