If you are experiencing difficulties in your relationship, Counselling Carlow can provide you with a space where you can explore the dynamics of your relationship from a more objective viewpoint. You will have the space to look at your relationship from the outside in, getting a clearer understanding of how and why, you and your partner are impacting on one another.
When we enter a relationship we all bring our own set of ideals of what happens in a relationship. This generally is a relationship template, which we adapted from our childhood experience, of how an adult relationship looks.
There can be positive and negative elements to our template but some difficulties arise when something we consider to be quiet normal relationship behaviour, goes completely against the grain of the template our partner brings.
At Counselling Carlow you will be facilitated as you look at the behaviours in your own relationship, both yours and your partners. You will gain a better understanding of the impact of these behaviours and the feelings, which arise from them; giving you greater insight into the dynamics of your relationship.
Positive communication is the key to any satisfying relationship and at Counselling Carlow, you can gain greater confidence in communicating with your partner in a way which is respectful to your feelings and theirs and thus non- threatening and vastly more satisfying.
“When we experience conflict or dissatisfaction in our relationships, we are being called on to develop something in ourselves that is weak, hidden, or unknown.”
