Relationship Counselling for Individuals
You may want to work on your relationship with the help of therapy, but don’t think your partner would be receptive to couples counselling. We can help you on an individual basis.
Should you stay?
Does your partner meet some of your needs but you are not sure if you feel fulfilled in the relationship? Do you find yourself looking outside the relationship and wondering if other people could meet your needs? Do you start to wonder if the bad times outweigh the good times with your partner?
It’s a common dilemma to feel as though your partner is too good to break up with but also too bad to stay with. Being able to discern and make an informed decision about your relationship choice is important, as there are many factors to work out. Our therapists can help you take a step-by-step approach to decide if you are happy with your partner choice or if you would prefer to change.
If you stay together, how can you make it work?
Do you find you end up getting into disagreements with your partner when your intention was to improve something?
Most of us were never taught how to be in a healthy and happy relationship. When you consider how long you spend learning a new skill or training for your career and compare that to how much study time has been spent learning about relationships, it becomes apparent that more information and time might be needed to learn about being in a relationship. Talking to a trained therapist who works with and studies relationships for a living can give your relationship the boost it might need.
Learning communication skills and understanding how attachment and love bonds work can give you a roadmap for how to improve your relationship. Without those assets, it can often feel like you are navigating in the dark. We can help you get there.
When you feel safe and secure with your partner, the challenges of daily living can seem easier to handle.
