Sexuality and Gender Issues

We are equal aren’t we.?!  Do we feel comfortable in our own skin?   Counselling gives the opportunity to fully explore ourselves and move forward positively.   We have a right to be who we are and to feel good about ourselves.  Our Self esteem is so important.   It can be easily dented by how we perceive ourselves and how we perceive others seeing us.

We are all so different and sometimes unaware of other people’s feelings. ‘My partner doesn’t understand me’. ‘We don’t talk.’ ‘We don’t have fun!’. Sometimes we know we are ‘pushing buttons’. Sometimes it is on a deeper psychological level. If two people want to work on a relationship having counselling can help. Do we really understand our partner’s needs? Do we really listen?

Relationships breakdown for numerous reasons.
One partner has an affair – how can trust be rebuilt? This is something that counselling can help with.
One partner has a new job; they change! A new baby arrives – we can then neglect each other! How do we resolve difficult issues that arise? Counselling helps look at compromises and ways to bring fun into the relationship again.
Communication – lack of good communication can have very adverse effects on relationships. Again, in counselling we look at ways of improving communication.
