What is Relationship Counselling?

Relationship Counselling is an effective way to help you feel better about your relationships and work towards getting your needs met from them. Relationship Counselling allows you to deal with any negative feelings or behaviours you have in your relationships and helps to overcome your issues. It’s a talking therapy that allows you to talk about your problems and feelings in a secure, supportive and dependable environment.

It’s how we listen and respond, our behaviours and even our body language that has the greatest impact on our relationships. It’s also about how we are drawn to certain people, our expectations and feelings towards relationships. These actions, and all the different forms of physical interaction and intimacy, underpin the strength and longevity of our relationships.

Couples CounsellingA Relationship Counsellor listens with empathy and can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you may have about your relationships. The Counselling will be series of face to face sessions on a weekly basis for about 50 minutes at a time. With Relationship Counselling it’s more about you and your relationships so you may not want to attend with a partner, and maybe you don’t have a current partner. If you need support for you and your current partner then take a look at Couples Counselling or Marriage Counselling.

Always remember a Counsellor won’t tell you what to do, provide a “quick fix” or give you their personal opinions. They will help you to improve your communication and never judge you.

How can Relationship Counselling help?

There are plenty of traps relationships can fall into. All the strains of everyday life take their toll on us and when you’re not communicating, or not listening, you’re unlikely to get your needs met and your relationships will start to suffer.

Sometimes talking to someone new is all it takes for you to gain fresh perspective and realise what’s going on. Your Relationship Counsellor will have the skills and experience to guide you to your own way of making things better.

Relationship Counselling helps you:

  • Consider what your needs are from a relationship
  • Reflect on where things could have improved
  • Learn how to resolve conflicts in meeting your needs
  • Reflect on the past and how it operates in the present
  • Understand how external factors affect your relationships
Usually people leave Relationship Counselling with a positive outlook, fresh views and a better perspective. If nothing else you should find that you’re able to communicate your needs more effectively.
