Our relationships are the foundation of our existence. Human beings are essentially social beings.
However, when things go wrong in relationship we can retreat, and withdraw from contact with others in order to protect ourselves from hurt, often leaving us feeling isolated.
Or we can act out and attack or defend our own perspectives shutting down the possibility of healing communication and conversation. Sometimes couples say to us, they don’t know what it is they argue about. We can get into the habit of fighting one another.
We may feel betrayed and find it hard to trust. We maybe caught up in painful feelings of jealousy or trapped in toxic patterns of behaviour. We may be at the receiving end of abusive actions from others.
Whether it be family crisis or distress between members of a couple, or between friends or workplace colleagues, therapy can help to both repair and reunite or create an environment in which goals and decisions can be safely explored.
