Taking positive action
The relationships in our lives can either be a source of great happiness, confidence and wellbeing, or a source of pain, anger and sadness. When relationships become negative they can have lasting effects on our self esteem, happiness and many other parts of our life.
Though there is no ‘perfect’ relationship, but there are strategies you can use to enjoy a happier and more fulfilling partnership. Communication is absolutely essential to a healthy relationship, but often it can fall by the wayside due to stress, responsibilities or a huge range of other factors. When communication breaks down it can seem impossible to continue a relationship.
Does home life make you feel tired and worn out? Do you constantly argue with your partner? Has sex and intimacy diminished in your relationship? Though tough times are a part of everyone’s lives and loves, ongoing issues can be a huge source of pain, anger and sadness.
Relationships with others can be demanding – particularly if you also are struggling with reconciling cultures, religions and backgrounds.
All sorts of relationships can be bettered through counselling, and our Canberra relationship counsellors are happy to work with anyone who wants support.

When a marriage falls apart it hurts us, our partner, any children, other family members and friends. Your Canberra counsellor can provide an unbiased source of support, who will speak with you honestly about issues you might be facing.
