Relationship Advice

Having good relationships with different people are the reason why life can become fulfilling. You might have all the problems in the world, but once you know you’re not going through all of it alone, everything seems better and calm. Your friends and family can be the reason for your strength, and without them, life couldn’t be as colorful as it is now. Being surrounded by positive people can contribute significantly to your personality.

For you to have a good relationship with others, you should also exert time and effort. If your relationships are left on the shelves, your general outlook can also be affected. Your behavior or way of thinking might change negatively if you’re alone for the longest time.

What are the Causes of Relationship Issues?

There are a lot of issues encountered when you’re in a relationship. If unresolved, these issues can become the reason for your breakdown.

Common causes of relationship issues include:

  • Conflict due to responsibilities and tasks
  • Financial problems
  • Indistinct loyalties between in-laws
  • Intimacy-related problems
  • Issues related to transitional phases in life (employment, immigration, birth of a child, etc.)
  • Lack of communication

What is Relationship Counselling?

Relationship counselling aims to recognize and reconcile relationships suffering from long-term problems. It requires the commitment and the openness of both parties for the psychologist to better understand how they can intervene with the problems at hand.

Sessions require for clients to narrate how their relationship is and what the problems are that they’re facing now. The psychologist will try to pinpoint the primary cause of the problem, educate the clients about it and gradually create a mindset which will enable clients to avoid recurring problems and petty issues.

Relationship counselling can be done within family members, a couple, employers and employees, and a professional and client.

Commonly Asked Questions

What is Counselling?2018-10-12T09:56:40+00:00

Counselling is what you call the process of obtaining insight on various issues by expressing your feelings and thoughts to a trained counsellor or psychologist. Counselling sessions aim to help you comprehend and hopefully resolve issues that cause you distress.

It’s perfectly normal for individuals, families, couples and individuals to seek counselling in order to assess and solve various problems and issues they encounter everyday. Expressing becomes easier for clients because the counsellor is not part of their personal life. Not to mention, since everything said in sessions is confidential, clients have the freedom to express themselves openly.

It is important to understand, however, that a counsellor does not tell you what you should do. They instead try to assist your growth and help you make a move that you are willing to commit to.

Similar to how weight lifters in the gym will gain more progress with the help of a personal trainer, those who try counselling may find themselves moving forward in their lives much more comfortably with guidance. With the help of counsellors, we can gain a better understanding of the various relationships and situations that we experience and encounter throughout our lives.
