Individual Counseling – Relationships
When we hear the word “relationship” we tend to think of romantic relationships. While some relationships are indeed romantic, we have a wide array of various types of relationship with peers, family members, co-workers, etc.
Healthy relationships are very important, and the quality of our relationships have a huge impact on both our mental and physical health and wellbeing. Having a supportive network of relationships help increase resilience during stressful life events and provide a sense of belonging.
Nevertheless, there are times when we experience conflict within our relationships. It’s inevitable. Sporadic and occasional conflict in relationship is natural. However, if you find yourself in frequent conflict on a rather consistent basis, with multiple people, it may be time to evaluate the role you play in these relationship conflicts. Improved communication skills, assertiveness, self-regulation, boundary setting, increased self-esteem and exploration of your relationship template are just a few ways working with a licensed therapist can assist you with managing conflict in a healthy manner and help you get on with enjoying the many health benefits of engaging in healthy and fulfilling relationships.
