Need Marriage or Relationship Counselling in North Shore?
Did you know that one in three marriages in Australia ends in divorce? While those numbers are staggering and sad, what’s even more depressing is the fact that many of these divorces could have been prevented. Relationship issues are everywhere, whether you’re dating, in a serious and committed relationship, engaged, or married. Whenever you get two people together, you’re bound to have disagreements and issues. So, when two people pledge to spend the rest of their lives together, you should expect to argue and disagree from time to time.
The trouble with most of these relationships is that couples never learn how to communicate with their partner effectively. While reasons for this all vary, working on enhancing your communication skills and learning how to connect and listen to your spouse, can make your marriage (or relationship) stronger than ever. You might even wonder why you were fighting in the first place.
If You’re Struggling in Your Relationship, Don’t Think There is Nothing You Can Do
One of the most disheartening reasons for breakups or divorces is that many couples sit back and watch their relationship unravel, without ever speaking up or doing anything to fight for their love. While it can be hard to fight for a relationship when you’re angry, upset, or feeling neglected, this is the only way to save your relationship. You have to make the decision to prioritise your marriage or relationship to repair the existing damage.
When you and your partner don’t speak the same language (metaphorically speaking), the best thing to do is turn to couples counselling in the North Shore area. Marriage counselling in North Shore can help identify your relationship problems, figure out goals or checkpoints for fixing these issues, and help you find effective ways to communicate with your partner.
