Relationship issues and how counselling helps

 

We are social animals, and therefore healthy relationships are of high importance for our healthy functioning. Having strong and healthy relationships brings joy within us and supports us in every other aspect of our lives, however, they also come in with great challenges in maintaining them. Relationship counselling is highly effective and guides people in their relationship problems or simply making their relationships healthier.

Familial, romantic, friendly relationships bring a sense of fulfillment within us. A strong and positive relationship with anyone requires time, energy, skills for it to be stable in the long run. Successful relationships need work from both ends. Therefore, if conflicts arise within a relationship, it is advisable for both parties to seek professional help together. There is support and help available for all who wish to see their relationships go to the next level.

Relationship counselling helps one with the following:

  • Improve self-awareness

  • Understand each other’s needs

  • Learn your partner’s problems

  • Anger management

  • Improve Listening skills

  • Build Decision-making skills

  • Conflict management

  • Empathy towards belief and values

No two relationships can be the same. All are different and special in their ways. However, there are a few aspects that are a must in any relationship and are effective if reciprocated equally. They are:

Communication

Good and effective communication is key to any long-lasting fruitful relationship. This is an effort that helps to make the relationship richer

Awareness

Awareness about your partner helps you work on their needs. Issues develop if you and your partner are unaware of what you want and need and build negative thoughts and emotions.

Respect

We know that the amount of respect you give, you will receive the same and vice versa. The more it is given and taken, the closer the relationship gets.

Trust

Trust is the foundation of all relationships. If partners do not trust each other 100%, several issues arise from them and do not allow the relationship to move forward.

Role of counselling in relationships

Therapy is a safe space to share all your thoughts and feelings without being judged. Often relationship counselling is done with partners attending the session with a counsellor. This helps them understand their needs and thoughts in more depth.

Counselling helps couples/ partners to develop skills of decision making, behavioral management, and time management to help bring out the best in their relationships. Counsellors give couples/partners homework in terms of communication, understanding, and valuing many aspects of their relationship for overcoming conflicts and smooth growth.

Counsellors may ask each partner individually for some sessions to provide a private space for you to express yourself freely. The counsellor then guides them personally on their respective problems. You can stay assured that the therapist will never share one partner’s issues with the other.

In relationship therapy, both individuals grow on different aspects and open substantial room for their relationship to heal and flourish. Many conflicts are resolved, many relationships become stronger than before, and the couple/partners prosper positively.
