Couples counselling gives you and your partner the time and space to explore what is and isn’t working in your relationship, how to communicate better, resolve conflict and face difficult feelings towards each other. It may feel daunting to air the ‘dirty laundry’ of your relationship in front of a stranger - especially if one of you is more reluctant to seek ‘help’ than the other. But the benefit is that your counsellor has no pre-conceived opinions or judgements on you as individuals or as a couple. They are impartial, trained to listen to both sides of the story, will give you strategies to talk and listen to each other better and will help you decide what you both want in the future. Whether you’re choosing to attend couples counselling to ‘part ways’ as healthily as possible, or to overcome your problems, you’ll come away with a better understanding of yourself, your partner and the dynamics of your relationship.
