In all relationships have ups and downs, but sometimes they can get a bit stuck and it’s hard to talk things through or get to a positive solution. That’s when help from a skilled couple relationship counselor can make all the difference. Whether you are feeling things just aren’t quite right or whether you are encountering serious difficulties, we are here to listen and to support you towards a positive outcome.
A romantic relationship is one of the closest we have as humans. Choosing a partner and staying together through life's twists and turns is rarely simple. When we choose to get married and raise a family together, unsurprisingly this only adds to the complexity.
Whether you have the odd tiff, full-blown arguments or you have simply stopped having fun - very few relationships exist conflict-free. When this (one of our most important relationships) begins to falter, our health and happiness often suffers. While for many of us our first instinct is to try and work through problems alone, it can be incredibly useful to seek outside help.
One route you may choose to go down is couples counselling - a form of talk therapy designed for those in a relationship. On this page we will look at couples counselling in more detail, including how it can help and some of the common relationship problems explored.
Couples counselling (which can also be referred to as marriage guidance) is a form of therapy that looks to improve communication and resolve issues within an intimate relationship. In contrast to counselling for relationship issues, which can be undertaken solely through individual sessions, couples counselling is a term applied to talk therapy for two people within a relationship.
With this in mind, counsellors who offer this form of therapy should have the relevant training to help them work with the dynamics of a couple. While couples counselling is ideally suited to couples attending the sessions together, if your partner is reluctant you can look to speak to a couples counsellor on your own to begin with. You may find your partner wants to join you after you have had some initial sessions alone - or you may find it helpful to intersperse couple sessions with individual sessions.
In regards to the techniques used, some of the work you do will take place within your counselling sessions themselves - however many couples counsellors will also ask you to carry out 'homework'. Typically your counsellor will ask you either to do a task or discuss something specific when you get home. During your next session you will get the chance to talk about your homework, discuss any challenges you came up against and how the experience made you both feel.
When we have been in a relationship or marriage for a long time it can be easy to fall into a trap of not listening to the other person or not communicating our needs clearly. Sometimes talking to someone with no connection to yourself or your partner is all it takes for you to gain perspective. What couples counselling offers here is the chance to speak to someone with no preconceived notions of who you are as a couple, with the added bonus of having skills and training behind them to guide you through your concerns.
Repeated failure to complete school or homework assignments and/or current assignments on time.

Feelings of depression, insecurity, and low self-esteem that interfere with learning and academic progress.
Excessive anxiety, worry, or fear that markedly exceeds the normal level for

Autonomic hyperactivity (e.g., rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, dizziness,
dry mouth, nausea, diarrhea).
Predisposing, precipitating maintaining and protective factors leads to psychological problems of children and adolescence.
The development of psychological problems in children and adolescents is influenced by
many factors. A distinction may be made between risk factors which predispose children to
developing psychological problems, precipitating factors which trigger the onset or marked
exacerbation of psychological difficulties, maintaining factors which perpetuate psychological
problems once they have developed, and protective factors which prevent further
deterioration and have implications for prognosis and response to treatment. Predisposing risk
factors, protective factors and maintaining factors may be subclassified as falling into the
personal or contextual domains, with personal factors referring to biological and
psychological characteristics of the child, and contextual factors referring to features of the
child’s psychosocial environment including the family, the school, the peer group and
involved treatment agencies.
Obsessions are recurrent, persistent ideas, thoughts, images or impulses that the patient
regards as alien and absurd, while recognizing them as products of his/her own mind.
Attempts are made to ignore and suppress them.
Compulsions are voluntary motor actions which are reluctantly performed despite
being regarded as alien or absurd. The act is performed with a subjective sense of compulsion
coupled with a desire to resist it (at least initially).When the individual does
attempt to resist, there is a mounting sense of tension which can only be relieved by
Agoraphobia is strictly a fear of open spaces, but the term is often used for fear of
shopping, crowds, etc.
Agoraphobia accounts for 60 per cent of phobic patients seen by psychotherapist.
66 per cent are female.Most develop symptoms between the ages 15 and 35.
Other non-phobic symptoms are common, including generalized anxiety, panic
attacks, depression and depersonalization.
CBT is based on some general assumptions about human disturbance
and change. The first is that cognitions are one of the most important
determinants of human emotion and behavior so that dysfunctional
thinking is a major determinant of emotional and behavioral distress.
Therefore, one of the best ways to conquer distress is to evaluate the content,
frequency, and strength of one’s thoughts, and, as necessary to modify
one’s thinking. There are multiple factors that act as antecedents to
dysfunctional or irrational thinking including biology, family of origin
environment, developmental experiences, as well as others but people
maintain a great deal of their disturbance through self-indoctrination.
We are largely creatures of habit and practice ways of thinking, feeling,
and behaving that can be problematic and may begin to feel automatic if
we’ve been practicing them long enough. Our behaviors and feelings also
influence our thinking. For example, we sometimes feel a certain way and
then look for evidence to support what we feel in our thinking. Or we behave
a certain way and then think and feel things about that behavior.
The good news is that thinking, behaving, and feeling can be changed so
that distress can be decreased and/or alleviated depending on what is
deemed appropriate by the client for the situation and energy can be refocused
in useful, productive ways.
