Relationship counselling explained
Marriage counselling or couples therapy is an effective way of getting the support your marriage or relationship needs. Common issues that you might value counselling for may include a lack of communication between you and your partner, a betrayal in the relationship or a recent emotional trauma. A trained professional can help navigate and guide you through these hard times. Having issues in your marriage or relationship can lead to frustration and anger towards your significant other, creating an unhealthy environment. A professional counsellor can help source the root of your issues and introduce change into your relationship.

Relationship counselling case study
Tina was a 29-year-old sales executive who was encountering difficulties in many of her relationships. She frequently interpreted comments and behaviours from friends and colleagues as derogatory – and tended to respond accordingly. This caused her to lose friendships and to miss out on promotion opportunities.
Over a course of 6 sessions, I helped Tina to understand how her negative thoughts were causing her to be unhappy. Tina also learned how to spot when she was jumping to conclusions in this way.
As a result, she was able to challenge these negative thoughts by looking for evidence to see if they were really true. This prompted her to re-evaluate many of her existing relationships in a more favourable light and to feel more confident in herself.
Richard took us from the lowest point in our marriage and gave us the forum and advice from which we are completely back on track. We are now looking forward to what amounts to a fresh beginning with each other and a huge thanks has to go to Richard for that. He made us think about and approach things in a way we would have never been able to do on our own.
