Couples Counselling

Do any of the following points ring a bell with you ?

  • Are you frightened of bringing up a sensitive subject with your partner ?
  • Does it seem as though your partner isn’t listening ?
  • Your conversations just seem to go round and round in circles.
  • You have only been talking for a short while and suddenly you are both in the middle of a shouting match.
  • You feel more frustrated at the end of the conversation than the beginning.
  • One of you can’t stop crying and the other disappears in a huff.

Couples Counselling will help you both look at the nature of your problems. We will look at your communication skills and work out different ways of dealing with your difficulties – perhaps you both want the same thing but are speaking different languages! By understanding just why you are struggling it is often possible to work towards a more positive outcome or, if not, a more bearable ending.

Ideally, a couple should go to Couples Counselling together but if your partner refuses then there are lots of things you can do to help the situation on your own. If this is the case, a Couples Counsellor will help you to sort out your feelings alone which will often then make a positive impact on your relationship and may well result in your partner wanting to join in further down the line.

All relationships go through difficult times but it is how we manage those times that makes the difference between staying together and parting
