Couples and Family
However much we love our nearest and dearest,
they are often the biggest source of stress in
Busy lives mean that couples often don’t have time to talk about things that are bothering them; problems can silently grow until they are too big to tackle on your own. Sometimes, couples need time and an impartial professional to decide if their relationship is experiencing a bad patch, or has reached the end of the road. Couples therapy can help relationships get back on track, or can make an inevitable parting kinder for all parties, especially if there are children involved.
Relationships between parents and children, or even grandparents and children can be very stressful. Families are often swamped with well-meaning advice, but nobody quite understands how difficult your particular situation is, and that what worked for your friend, or your parents’ generation may not work for you. You may be juggling several needs at once, such as work, financial problems, and relationships with current or ex-partners. Systemic or Family Therapy looks at the big picture, and can help you improve important relationships.
