Relationship Counselling - Coping with relationship problems & difficulties

Relationships with other people come in all sorts of shapes and forms (friends, siblings, parents, romantic, work) and they can be a significant source of joy and satisfaction when they are going well. However, relationships can also be complicated, painful and frustrating, leaving us at a loss to know what to do. At these times you may wish to explore relationship counselling to find solutions to your relationship problems.

I work with individuals (rather than couples) to help them understand and transform relationship problems. These can come in many guises: difficulties with intimacy, power struggles, destructive patterns, manipulative behaviour and game playing, abusive or violent behaviour, difficulties with intimacy and chronic self-esteem issues, are just a few of the reasons to seek some help.

Relationship counselling can have many benefits. You can:

  • Learn to identify your needs and how to meet them
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Deal with angry feelings
  • Learn how to deal with someone else’s behaviour
  • Develop the skills and confidence to be intimate with another
  • Deal with emotions in relationships
  • Change destructive patterns of behaving
  • Work with specific sexual problems or issues to do with sexuality
  • Feel happier and more fulfilled in your connections with others

I would be happy to discuss with you whether counselling for relationship problems may be of use to you. Please feel free to contact me on 07527 188405.
