COUPLES + INDIVIDUALS
Why should I try counselling?
Every individual and couple is unique. As are the reasons that lead them to consider: should I try counselling? There are, however, some issues that are common among couples and individuals who come to The Spark for help.
Issues typically dealt with during counselling can include:
- Communication issues: we don’t talk anymore/they don’t listen to me anymore, I can’t talk to my family
- Life changes: births, separation, divorce, leaving school, step-families or bereavement for example
- Mental health: anxiety, stress, depression or addiction
- Work issues: when you are experiencing difficult relationships with managers/colleagues or facing redundancy or unemployment
- Family conflict: the difficult teenage years, separation, divorce or empty nest
- Mistrust: when an affair is suspected or has been discovered
