What is Couples/ Relationship Counselling

If your relationship or a friendship is in difficulty, or if you have difficulty communicating and forming friendships, professional support can help you identify the issues and strategies to improve your life.

People in supportive, caring relationships are more likely to feel healthy, happy and satisfied with their lives. They are less likely to have mental or physical health problems or do things that affect their health.

People in good relationships help each other practically as well as emotionally. They share the good times and help each other through the tough ones. All relationships have challenging times.

Your relationship greatly affects your children as they grow up and become adults. Children will benefit from your efforts to enrich your relationship.

Good relationships involve:

  • respect, honesty and trust

  • love, companionship and shared activities

  • mutual emotional support and intimacy

  • communication

  • agreement about finances, child raising and other matters important to you

  • shared dreams for the future.

Couples and friends who are able to communicate effectively are more likely to be able to handle conflict constructively.

Many people in a relationship need assistance at some time to:

  • help them deal with problems or difficulties in their relationship

  • improve communication

  • cope with a relationship that has broken down

  • help to change a relationship where there is violence and abuse.
