How can counselling help?
Individual counselling and psychotherapy may allow individuals to identify unhealthy relationship patterns. It can offer the opportunity to make sense of your feelings and discover why you may behave in certain ways.
One evidence based therapy technique is Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which can help you focus on the link between the emotions, thoughts and behaviour associated with your relationship. This can be a beneficial technique, changing the way an individual responds to the situations that provoke relationship problems.
Some therapists may choose to focus on mindfulness, relaxation, and problem solving. These can help you approach conflict with a calm attitude.
