The first step forward
Romantic relationships are often the cornerstones of our lives – something that impacts everything else – our work, our families and our sense of wellbeing. That’s why unhappy relationships can cause so much pain and sadness, making us feel bereft, alone, betrayed or angry.
There isn’t any ‘right’ way to make a relationship work, but working as partners is important to having a happy relationship. Unfortunately some hard times can cause us to stop communicating with our partners, resulting in huge problems. When we no longer feel connected to our life partners, it can be difficult to see a way forward with life.
Do you always fight with your loved one? Does coming home make you feel anxious or bitter? Has your relationship ceased to be intimate? These issues are common in relationships, but that doesn’t mean they are healthy. Sometimes these feelings are actually pointing to bigger problems.
Relationships can be difficult, especially if you come from different backgrounds, cultures or religions.
Gold Coast Life Supports accredited marriage and relationship counsellors and psychologists can work with you individually and together to help you create a more loving relationship with yourself and your partner.
All types of partnerships and relationships are welcome with our Gold Coast relationship counsellors.
Marriage counselling services
The disintegration of a marriage can have far reaching effects, hurting those in the relationship, children, family members and even friends. Working with an experienced Gold Coast marriage counsellor will help you to discover the real issues you face as a couple and open up avenues of communication.
All relationships go through more difficult times, but some events can be particularly traumatic or difficult. These could be:
- Extra-marital affairs
- Sexual problems
- Controlling or abusive behaviour
- Power Balance
- Family Problems
Gold Coast Life Support marriage counsellors are experienced in helping couples find positive steps forward. We listen to your issues, concerns and worries and help provide dynamic and positive strategies that can really improve your relationship.
Through Gold Coast marriage and relationship counselling you will discover more about yourself, your partner and your relationship. This can be hugely beneficial, because it can allow you to openly and honestly discuss concerns or issues you struggle with.
Having these issues openly discussed is the first step to taking positive action to improve your life. Compromises and fair solutions can be reached, through knowing and understanding your partner’s feelings. Sometimes these discussions are the first time you really understand the core of a problem and its effect on your partner.
There is no need to remain in a negative relationship: you can take action today. The first step to take is to regain open and honest communication. Call us on 1300 735 030 today to get experienced and qualified assistance in taking these steps.
Our network of Gold Coast Life Supports accredited counsellors is a way to get in contact with an experienced and trained counsellor who wants the best for you. Your counsellor can offer professional, balanced and healthy support during this crisis.
