Relationships are an integral aspect of being human; adding value to our lives and contributing to our overall sense of wellbeing and happiness.
The connections we share with others comes from many types of relationships including: family members, partners, friends, neighbours, work peers, broader community groups and individuals.
When relating to another person becomes strained or changes, positive emotions may be reduced; reciprocal support lacking; and usual shared experiences along with effective communication disrupted. Most people in their lifetime will at some stage experience a relationship concern that results in minimising their optimal level of functioning.
Counselling may assist you to improve your relationship concerns by increasing self awareness, clarifying issues, identifying goals, exploring options, and reviewing strategies to help you in the process of improving the way you relate to others.
In the words of Carl Jung… “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves”.
