People seek counselling when their relationships are in difficulty or on the brink of ending.
Some want help in making a split, some want to repair and continue. I do not work with couples but with individuals whose main source of distress and unhappiness is due to a problematic relationship. This may be a relationship with a spouse or life-partner, a parent, child, sibling, friend or work colleague.
It may be that your problem is you find it hard to connect with other people and make and sustain a relationship. You may also have reached the point that you wish to understand why your relationships always follow the same destructive pattern and want to end that cycle.
You may be feeling very lonely after the death of a loved one or because you have no one to whom you are close and connect with. Counselling, by its very nature is about connecting with another person and a therapeutic relationship can help you learn more about how you connect an make attachments with other people.
