Relationships can be very rewarding when they go well.
Positive relationships nourish us emotionally and help us feel
connected to and make sense of the world around us.
All relationships need to be worked at to make them a
success, whether with partners, friends or other loved ones, some
give and take and effort is required to maintain them so that
they stay healthy and fulfilling.
When relationships go through challenging times,
particularly when the intensity of the initial thrill starts to
cool, a degree of negotiating and compromise is usually
required. Communication is really important for healthy
relationships and it's often poor communication that makes
things go wrong.
This section of the website looks at various issues that
affect our relationships. There is also a section that
explains how counselling can sometimes help in a relationship.
