We strive for our relationships to provide us with love, support, and safety, however every couple experiences relationship difficulties which can be overwhelming. Sometimes these difficulties leave one or both partners not feeling heard, disrespected, alone, and stuck. Left unresolved, these issues can cause significant psychological, physical and emotional stress. Often, one or both consider separating.

Some of the common symptoms / causes of relationship difficulties:

  • Neglecting the relationship
  • Conflict
  • Withdrawing
  • Loss of compassion
  • Communication challenges
  • Emotional or physical extra-marital relationships / affairs
  • Managing work-life balance
  • Issues with parenting
  • Differences in values

Relationship counselling can provide you with tools to assist in increasing communication and understanding, raising and resolving differences, and strengthening the relationship. Sometimes both partners will attend together, other times there may be both joint and individual sessions. The psychologist will discuss the best option that suits your relationship. Goals can be made together that aim to make improvements in communication, connectedness, conflict resolution, intimacy and so on.
