If you are thinking of investing in couple’s therapy or family counselling, here are some thoughts.
Couples / Family counselling is worth considering in many situations where we have no knowledge about what to do. When things aren’t straightforward in our lives. We are often expected to push through. Life doesn’t come with a manual and we can often struggle with emotionally difficult things like the loss of a parent, a life threatening diagnosis or other things that make us feel alone despite our relationships and loved ones. Whether it is about adjusting to a blended family, heal estranged relationships or resolve more complex challenges such as gender change, sexual orientation, extended family expectations, religious pressures, mental health, life changing diagnosis, divorce or abuse, talking to someone who understands can help us.
When life gives lemons, counselling can help enhance how to be aware of our choices and make conscious decisions rather than reacting to a situation.
