Bumps in the road are to be expected and are normal within any relationship, but getting through them on your own can at times seem impossible. Having a third party involved can dramatically improve your relationship in ways that you might not expect. In many cases, simple communication barriers between two individuals can create conflict within the couple; however, can be hard to recognize this when you’re directly in it.
Interactive Counselling offers your relationship an unbiased view and helps you establish your own set of values and boundaries as a unified couple. Doing this is often a step that couples miss, but is a crucial component in a healthy, loving and positive relationship. Seeing a counsellor to establish your boundaries with one another can offer you a mediator on topics that can be sensitive to bring up, reducing fights regarding these issues. Our counsellors will help you gain skills that will give you the tools to eventually work through issues on your own, in a fair and productive manner.
Often people view couples counselling as a relationship in turmoil, and on the edge of ending. Although this is sometimes the case, it doesn’t always have to be.
Having a “relationship check-up” can offer a safe space to check in with one another to ensure that you both feel that you are on track. At times when things are appearing to go well, little problems can be harbored inside, as an individual may not want to derail any sort of happiness. Doing this is the first step towards a disaster as it can often lead to eventual explosions. Dealing with one, or a few issues at a time, is easier to address than having many compounded issues and needing to face all of them at once. Having to face multiple problems can be an extremely overwhelming result of holding it all in.
Interactive Counselling is committed to each individual within the couple, as well as the couple as a whole. Although couples counselling isn’t guaranteed to save a relationship, it is a key component on knowing that it is an opportunity to give one another the effort of trying everything before making a conclusive decision.
