Child & Family Counselling
Positive relationships with other people in our lives can make us feel contented and extremely happy. Being part of a productive positive relationship can help us to find meaning in our daily lives. These relationships help us to flourish and enable us to take chances because we know we are supported and loved by those around us.
It is important to realise that these relationships require continuous communication and a large investment of time and energy to stay positive and meaningful. When the lines of communication break or become ensnared we can be left feeling unwanted, lonely and unloved.
Often we don’t know how to solve the situation and can act in ways that damage the situation even more. Sometimes the relationships we find ourselves in are unsatisfactory and we are unsure about what do to change the situation.
There are various types of problems that can occur in relationships. A therapist should be able to work with the individuals involved to reveal the causes of the problems and help to explore ways to reach optimum solutions.
Familial relationships are a fundamental part of our lives. These relationships can define us and often become the footings on which we base our own relationships in the future. When these crucial relationships become tense and stressed the people involved can be frustrated and, sometimes, damaged.
Whether it is a single person causing the issues, a conflict between two or more members of the family or problems that have built up over time it is imperative to find a solution to the struggle and a trained family counsellor can help you and your family to find stability again by providing a safe environment where each member can freely communicate and listen to each other.
Long lasting romantic relationships are never free of conflict. When our communication lines suffer because of these stresses we can find ourselves struggling to find happiness and fulfilment and often begin to feel resentful and angry.
If this is happening it might be time to find a counsellor or a therapist who can help you and your partner figure out the issues and work through them.
Discovering that your child is struggling emotionally or psychologically can be extremely upsetting for any parent. Seeking the help of a professional can, either, enable you to help your child yourself, or when necessary, help your child directly.
Much like an adult, children can have complex internal struggles and only by understanding what their struggle is can you try to reduce the anxiety they are experiencing.

Powerful Quotes and Poems to inspire you
Dare we hope? We dare.
Can we hope? We can.
Should we hope? We must, because to do otherwise is to waste the most precious of gifts given so freely by God to all of us. So when we do die, it will be with hope and it will be easy and our hearts will not be broken.

Love is Patient - The Bible: 1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
It is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
But rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
Always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
