Money

Some people like to save and rarely spend. Others place no real value on money and spend it without thinking about the consequences. No surprise it can create conflict in a couple relationship.

What does money mean to you?

Your individual relationship with money will be determined and driven by your emotional self. Fear, reward, safety, anxiety, pleasure, love, control, greed are all driven by what money means to you personally. The relationship you have with money will generally be shaped by the time you are of an age to manage and spend it.

We often learn how to be with money from our past experiences with parents and significant others. Some people like to save and rarely spend others place no real value on money and spend it without thinking about the consequences.

Of course, money will become a part of your relationships with partners and children and can be a huge source of conflict.

When there are differences regarding managing money in a relationship, it can cause real conflict leading to arguments and resentment which manifests in different parts of the relationship. These arguments never seem to resolve or reach a compromise and can bring a side out in your partner which is difficult to tolerate.

If this sounds familiar to you take it to couple counselling. Third party intervention here will be useful for you to gain an understanding of your own relationship with money and the relationship your partner has with money. This insight will encourage empathy and compromise on both sides. Agreed boundaries and a way forward is important to sustain a better couple relationship with and around money.

Remember you are teaching your children and others around you how to shape a relationship with money and therefore lessons you learn will benefit others moving forward.

I find Florence excellent as a counsellor as she has a very down to earth attitude and just tells it like it is. I particularly like her no ‘airy fairy’ nonsense approach, her straight talking and no pussy footing about. I feel at ease to say anything at all to her and know I will get a sensible response. I find her style very helpful indeed and found our sessions personally very beneficial.
