Relationship Counselling in Newcastle and Consett
Here at Reach for Solace we support couples through their difficulties within their relationship. In relationship therapy people set a time aside for themselves and their partner to be able to listen and learn about themselves and their loved one. Couples can find a way to connect again and move forward rather than feel stuck and helpless. Having an 'impartial' therapist can help couples to see the things that are detrimental in their communication and find new ways of communicating in a respectful manner to their partner. This can help when one feels blamed or criticised and in turn both people become defensive. Relationship counselling can help people to gain insight, understanding of themselves and their partners feelings and behaviour and help feel empathy for one other.
People lead busy lives with work, children, house chores, hobbies and making time to see family and friends... sometimes it feels there are not enough hours in the day for yourself never mind intimacy with your partner. However it can be at these times when the emotional distance contributes to us feeling less satisfied in our relationships. We work with couples whose communication is breaking down, lack of intimacy, trust issues, abuse and infidelity.
Couples Therapy: Couples can be supported by a therapist to help them recognise & resolve conflicts and improve their relationships.

Abuse in relationships: Abuse is defined as any action that intentionally
harms or injures another person.

criticising your thoughts feelings….

Sexual Abuse/Rape: Any none-consenting sexual act or behaviour
Anger: Healthy anger is deliberate, proportional, and responsive to a clear and present need.
Healthy anger is a powerful tool of human survival and adaptation. It is functional and in the service of valid goals.
Anger becomes dysfunctional when it works against our best interests or our higher values.
"Dysfunctional anger" does not help us to do the right thing. Dysfunctional anger can be destructive, out of proportion, and inappropriate to the circumstances. Often, it is unnecessary and harmful to others. An anger management problem also arises when we get angry too often.
