Couples Counselling helps you to look at and discuss problems occurring in adult relationships. The relationship, rather than the two individuals, is the ‘client’.
Our very closest relationship is based on intimacy and trust. When it stops working it can have a great effect on us and also on our health and happiness. Our sense of identity and self-worth often relies on the strength of our relationships and when our relationship fails we can feel hopeless.
Pressures in our lives, work, money family and health all add to the strain. All of a sudden the relationship that once re-energized us leaves us exhausted and disappointed. If you feel your relationship needs a fresh start therapy can help.
I had a very difficult personal relationship to solve which was complex as well as potentially life changing. The work Dionne did with me was extremely professional and was the single biggest factor in helping me and my partner get back on track. There were some instant results as well as the longer term advice which I stil refer to on a regular basis. I would unreservedly recommend Dionne. Outstanding!
Counselling will help you to:
- see things from the others point of view, even when you don’t agree with them.
- understand what makes your partner tick
- learn to talk and really listen
- tackle problems together
Couples therapy helps deal with communication (or lack of it) and teaches couples how to communicate on different levels and communicate more effectively.It helps to address issues of conflict or anger in the relationship. It is also useful to look at the different ways in which partners think and to examine common thinking distortions which can greatly influence a relationship.
Counselling allows couples to focus on their relationship and give the relationship the time and attention it needs. Whether they are at a turning point in the relationship, or simply struggling with minor issues. Couples Counselling is a way of enabling choice or change or of reducing confusion. It does not involve giving advice or directing a particular course of action. Counsellors do not judge their clients in any way, they are there to offer support and to help clients understand their relationship and make sense of their issues.
Premarital counselling is a type of therapy that helps couples get ready for marriage or living together. Premarital counselling can help ensure that you and your partner have a strong, healthy relationship giving you a better chance for a steady and rewarding marriage. Premarital counselling can also help to identify weaknesses that could become bigger problems during marriage if ignored.
