Relationship issues can be understood as an adult partnership. However, relationship issues may affect several generations within a family. Perhaps the issues were encountered in the workplace or relationships that are more than a casual acquaintance. It may be that you find it difficult to form mutually respectful, trusting and fulfilling relationships with others.
– How the issues feel
The issues within the relationship may have taken the form of feeling that the other person is dismissive of you, takes you for granted, lies and is untrustworthy. A child may feel parents have let them down or misunderstand them. Parents may be at their wits end trying to communicate with their children. Or perhaps they find there is aggression and other difficult behaviour.
– Symptomised by behaviour
Extreme relationship issues are symptomised by abusive behaviour. This may include physical, emotional and sexual abuse; other forms of bullying and harassment. Male or female, you may feel trapped in a spiral of abuse, without hope, imprisoned in your own life.
Relationship breakdown carries feelings of bewilderment, isolation, loneliness and loss. You may feel that you want to resolve the issues that have arisen; you may want to discuss these real feelings in order to make difficult decisions.
Working together we would establish a secure, entirely confidential relationship. One where you feel safe to look at your feelings. We may explore how relationship issues have arisen in the present; whether there is a pattern and how this might be resolved. Additionally we will look at whether you have been left vulnerable to unhelpful relationships. As such the aim is to help you create and maintain fulfilling, lasting and warm relationships.
