HOW INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Individual counselling can be beneficial in many ways.
While it might be preferable to attend sessions with the person that you are in relationship with it is not always appropriate.
Choosing to work on your relationship without your partner can be extremely beneficial. In the same way that a change in a cog can alter the whole machine, a positive change within our self will impact our partner, family, friends, and colleagues.
COUNSELLING FOR RAPE AND ABUSE
These sensitive issues often remain unspoken but can still have a powerful effect on our ability to make or maintain loving relationships.
Individual relationship counselling helps to explore the impact it has on the client in the past, and the effect it has on current relationships. It challenges negative thoughts and revaluates defence mechanisms, required to cope at the time, in light of the present circumstances.
This promotes a less punishing attitude towards our self, improves esteem and helps us make the adjustments necessary to enjoy our relationships moving forward.
DEALING WITH LOSS
Individual bereavement counselling provides support to individuals through the often-bewildering whirlpool of emotion as they grieve the loss of a partner or loved one either through death or divorce.
Individual counselling will help clients to work through the five stages of grieving - denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
COUNSELLING FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ABUSE
It is not possible to counsel couples where there is on-going domestic violence, as this may make the situation even more volatile; however you may find individual counselling helpful in understanding why this situation has developed, gaining control of your anger, enabling you to be heard by talking about your emotions rather than demonstrating them.
If you are a non-violent partner, individual counselling helps you to understand why this has happened, so that the same dynamic does not repeat itself, together we can then look to increase self-esteem and support you to find a safe way forward.
Please note that if both partners desire counselling, I may only see one of them but would be happy to make a referral to a colleague for the other.
