Couples Counselling

Relationships are complicated. Counselling may help.

Relationships can be a source of emotional fulfillment but when there are difficulties, they can lead to feelings of disappointment, guilt, abandonment or loneliness.

What is relationship counselling?

Couples Counselling

Relationship counselling is aimed at couples. It is designed for people in a relationship to understand and better manage patterns of behaviour that cause distress within the relationship. The aim is to help couples to reconcile. Counselling and psychotherapy provide a safe and objective arena in which to discuss concerns. Individuals gain insight into patterns of behaviour and the way in which they may relate to others. Therapy aims to help individuals form positive bonds with their partner.

How can counselling help with relationship problems?

Couples Counselling

Relationships can be affected by arguments and tension. Relationship counselling can provide a safe and objective environment in which to address difficulties a couple are facing. It can sometimes be hard for people in the midst of a problem to listen and communicate with each other without causing further tension. Therapy is designed to facilitate an environment in which more open and honest communication can take place. The Psychiatrist can help to identify patterns of behaviour that lead to tension so that individuals can gain a better understanding about the changes that are needed to foster a harmonious relationship.
