Within relationships their can be expectations, pressures and changes which can be challenging, confusing or distressing. In some situations, relationships break down, and there can be impact on this to sense of self, to confidence, to happiness. Expectations within relationships can be very difficult to manage, making changes within existing relationships can be challenging. We can give a lot of ourselves to relationships, so when something is difficult within this, it can equally take a lot from us.
Counselling may be a chance to explore in more depth the relationships that we have. Within counselling, the client and counsellor develop a trusting relationship, and this can offer a space to explore feelings around relationships and yourself within a relationship. It is also somewhere that feelings about relationships can be expressed without fear of judgement, allowing for honesty in understanding of this.
