Child & Family Counselling
Healthy relationships with others in our lives can make us feel fulfilled and deeply happy. Being in a positive productive relationship can enable us to find meaning in our everyday lives. These relationships help us to grow and allow us to take risks because we know we are loved and supported by those around us.
However these types of relationships require constant communication and lots of time and energy to stay positive and meaningful. When the lines of communication break down or become tangled people can be left feeling unloved, unwanted or lonely.
Often they don’t know how to resolve the situation and react in ways that can make the situation worse. Sometimes the relationships we find ourselves in are unfulfilling and we don’t know what to do to alter the situation.
Types of Relationship Issues
There are many types of issues that can arise in relationships. A counsellor will be able to work with the individuals involved to determine the causes of the problems and help to explore different ways to reach a positive and fulfilling solution.
Long lasting relationships are never free of conflict and discord. When our communication lines break down because of these strains we can find ourselves struggling to find fulfilment and often begin to fill up with resentment and anger.
When this begins to happen it might be time to find a counsellor or a therapist who can help you and your partner identify the issues and work through them together in a neutral environment.
Familial relationships are a vital part of our lives. These relationships help to define us and often become the foundation on which we base our future relationships. When these essential relationships become stressed and strained the people involved are often damaged and frustrated.
Whether it is one person causing the issues or problems that have built up over time it is essential to find a solution and a trained family counsellor can help the family to find balance again by providing a safe environment where each family member can communicate freely and listen to the other family members do the same.
Realising that your child is struggling emotionally or psychologically can be distressing for any parent. Seeking the help of a professional can, in turn, enable you to either help the child yourself, or when necessary, help the child directly.
Much like an adult, children can have complex internal struggles and only by understanding what is going on with them can you reduce the anxiety they are experiencing.
