Relationship Dynamics

Counselling on Family Dynamics


Is there something I can do to help my relationship?


The quick and easy answer is absolutely. You may love your role in your family, but find that there is conflict between you and your spouse. You may feel lonely, confused, or both. Sounds like a relationship issue. We connect with others and relationships are maintained through our ability to communicate with each other, and so as we begin to look for underlying issues, we can easily see communication as a potential struggle. As a result no one gets heard, assumptions escalate and the emotional quality of the relationship deteriorates.


Communication doesn't always begin at our lips. It can be initiated at our ears. Active listening is the essential key to any quality relationship, but if this is a struggle for you or if you're thinking that there's got to be more going on, I'm happy to discuss this issue with you. Begin by booking your first appointment right here. Note: if anger is getting in the way, please bring this to my attention, too.


For some of us, being afraid of losing a prised position within our families is a very realistic & logical concern. Significant personal changes may be required. For others of us however, we may be faced with the difficult yet important emotional decision of whether to remain in our current relationship or to cut our loses and move forward. Regardless of the  specifics of your concerns, we're here to assist you. Book your first appointment by clicking here.

So how does a responsible person make their most personal relationships work successfully? The key word here is "responsible." Honestly, I have met individuals who just never thought that they had to think and act responsibly in their relationships. This just isn't that unusual. On the other hand, I've talked with people who have struggled to know "what specifically" to do to strengthen an existing relationship.


I've actually been told by one man that because he worked hard all day at the office that once he arrived at home he should be able to just relax and let his hair down. He didn't see that he should have to put forth any effort at all to ensure that he had a successful relationship at home.


On the other hand, I have worked with individuals who've invested a great deal of time and effort into improving their self-awareness. With improved self-awareness we become better positioned to be able to learn through daily observation and experience, what our partner thinks, feels, and really needs to be happy. I think that we need to be realistic with our own needs too. Unless we get our needs met, it could be very difficult to maintain our motivation and to maintain our efforts with a spouse.

Making an effort to be responsible does not have to mean showing another how unreasonable they are behaving. It likely doesn't mean escalating the situation either. Being responsible in family relations can be challenging and might suggest allowing others to find solutions to their own issues. Often, however, we just need to practice developing a greater proficiency with a few new skills. We can talk about these and other concerns you have. Making a professional connection with a Psychologist can remind us of our personal values, our strengths, plus provide us with a perspective that proffers real development opportunities.
