Fostering better relationships
Strong, supportive relationships are vital for a healthy and happy life, but sometimes, our relationships can get a bit complicated.
What do I need to know?
The issues we can face within our relationships are as diverse and multi-faceted as the people within them, but may include:
- You, your partner, a child, or another member of your family or close-support system is experiencing mental illness
- Ongoing family conflict
- Break-ups and/or divorce
- Parenting difficulties
- Loss or grief
- Domestic violence
- Managing work/life balance
How can a professional help me?
A mental health professional with expertise and experience in relationships can help you and/or your partner and family to strengthen your relationships, to manage conflict and change, and to take positive steps towards mental well-being.
How does therapy work?
Mental health professionals have a broad variety of techniques and tools they can use to support you and your partner or family to manage any difficulties you may be facing.
Common approaches include developing strategies and skills to manage relationship stress or conflict, support to manage loss, grief or break-ups, or even just offering a fresh perspective to everyone experiencing difficulty in a family or partner relationship.
