Hong Kong Based Relationship Counselling
Couples counselling is sometimes considered a last resort for when things in a relationship are at breaking point, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Couples counselling can help you strengthen the bonds of a relationship, gain a deeper understanding of the processes that occur within the dynamic of a relationship, and prevent minor irritations becoming much bigger problems.
If however you do find yourself at a point where problems have become “big”, there is still hope. Couples counselling can help to build the foundations of open, honest, non-confrontational communication in a safe, and professional environment.
Relationship and marriage counselling that can address a broad range of problems
Some of the issues that can be addressed through couples counselling can include (but are not limited to):
- Infidelity within the relationship
- Issues around childcare, division of tasks in the home
- Money concerns
- Bereavement within the family
- Fertility problems
- Addictions (gambling, sex, drug and alcohol etc)
- Intimacy issues
- Loss of emotional connection within the relationship
Counselling sessions are offered to both same-sex and hetereosexual couples, whether married or in a very new relationship. The session format will consist of an initial assessment with both parties, followed by a mixture of joint and individual sessions, depending on the goals of therapy. Therapy techniques used will be a mixture of narrative therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and family systems theory. Both parties will be treated with a non-judgemental and compassionate approach, irrespective of the issues brought in to the therapy space.
Sometimes couples reach a point where the marriage has broken down irretrievably and the only workable solution is to separate permanently. In this scenario divorce counselling can help couples or individuals grieve for a relationship, work through the trauma of the divorce process, and create a healthier platform from which to rebuild your life after the loss of your marriage.
