Relationship counselling offers a space to explore and work through issues that are impacting the relationship. Most people who come for relationship counselling are a couple, however counselling can also be beneficial for other relationships, for example family relationships.
Relationship counselling can be for couples or for individuals who want to talk about the important relationships in their lives that they may be struggling with.
Relationship counselling can help with communication, it can help to identify the problems within your relationship and help you to look at ways of working through any issues. Counselling can help you to understand what your individual needs are and how this impacts your relationship.
It can be hard to think about opening up to someone about the personal issues within your relationship. Some people feel that they should be able to sort things out themselves and see seeking help as a failure or as giving up. If one of you is reluctant to come for counselling it may help for each of you to talk to the therapist individually first to discuss any concerns you may have. Counselling is much more effective if both parties are willing and open to the process.
