Relationship counselling is a process through which a couple (who may be engaged, dating, married, partnered—or sometimes even parent and child or other pairings) works with a counsellor to identify specific areas of conflict and/or aspects of their relationship they would like to change, and then develops a plan of action to improve each individual’s satisfaction and contentment.
Working with a counsellor in a safe and confidential setting, people are able to explore how their individual backgrounds, beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors may be impacting their relationship in both positive and negative ways. The counsellor may assist the couple with addressing any immediate and pressing problems, as well as developing strategies for protecting and enhancing the long-term health and happiness of their relationship.
Here are some reasons why our clients seek Relationship counselling:
- Healthy relationship functioning
- Conflict resolution
- Relationship dissolution
- Challenging family dynamics
- Changing negative intergenerational patterns
- Commitment counselling
