Confessions of a relationship counsellor

Going through my own relationship difficulties many years ago, lead my wife and I to explore relationship counselling.

At the time I was working as a general counsellor and didn’t understand the true complexities of couple’s counselling. If I did I may have recognised that the help we received in many ways was not great; in that it focused on what was not working, gave justifications for ending the relationship, didn’t manage the strong emotions present and even framed the raw emotions as a sign things were not working.

Some questions for you to consider:

Do you feel anxious or uncertian with a situation you are facing?
Do you think you or others around you are avoiding issues?
Do you find yourself arguing and conflicting over what seams like little things?
Are you struggling to understand what is happening and why?
Do you feel silenced, trapped or powerless by the situation you are in?
Are you willing and ready for things to change?
Do you want to break old patterns and create new possibilities?

If you are feeling stuck and unable to create traction in moving forward contact Chris at Auckland Counselling to outline your situation or make an appointment.
