Counselling is talking together, in a secure place, about your concerns. It enables you space and time to gain understanding and explore issues. The form of counselling practised is “people-centred counselling”. This is a non-directive form of counselling which represents the autonomy of the individual and their ability to find their own solutions, promoting self-acceptance and personal freedom. Counselling is carried out in the privacy of Southport Osteopathy, a multi-disciplinary practice offering a discrete service.
Couples can get into difficulty for a number of reasons. Examples are constant bickering or arguing, the breakdown of communication, debt or substance misuse or lack of trust following disclosure of an affair. When a relationship is at breaking point it can often make you feel exhausted and depressed. Talking to a Relationship Counsellor can help you get to the heart of your conflicts. The aim is to give you a safe environment in which to talk about your relationship issues so you can improve your communication and gain confidence in self-expression as a couple. It can also help you discover how you negotiate and compromise with one another so you can discover ways of moving forward.
Appointments last 50 Minutes. For more information please check the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy or our Counselling page.
