Other Relationships

Relationship counselling is not just about marriage and couple work. All relationships can be challenging at times especially around family members, work colleagues and older children.

Other Relationships

Relationship counselling is not just about marriage and couple work. All our other relationships can be challenging at times.

We often base our sense of identity and self-worth on the strength of the relationships that we have with those closest to us. We are always quick to blame, however, with every relationship dynamic we all need to take responsibility for the part we played in the state of the relationship.

Relationships are a crucial part of our everyday life. Parents, children, in-laws, stepchildren, work colleagues and friends all form part of our relationship network. When these relationships fail, it affects us deeply and creates feelings of anger, frustration, and sadness which causes a shift in the way we relate to ourselves and others around us.

Some of the relationships that benefit from counselling are:

  • Mother and son/daughter
  • Father and son/daughter
  • Other significant family member
  • Parents and step parents
  • Step children
  • Grandparent
  • Siblings
  • Work colleagues
  • Friends

The goal of relationship counselling is to help family members improve communication, resolve conflict, have a better empathic understanding of each other and their issues and help create healthier relationships. Often family history needs to be discussed and the truth needs to be shared. Resentment from the past can be the cornerstone of the breakdown in family relationships.

We understand the importance of allowing each party to address individual issues, allowing for deeper communication and more efficient conflict management.

During the counselling process we will want to:

  • Explore the interaction between both members in the relationship
  • Promote productive and meaningful communication in a safe and supportive way
  • Ensure each person is heard without interruption
  • Focus on how to re-build the relationship
  • Encourage compromise on both sides
  • Provide a plan of action and tools to help the relationship stay on track

Nightingale Relationship Counsellors will not take sides but will ensure both parties have an equal share of time to express their feelings from their perspective. The counsellor will also ensure we respect and acknowledge the other’s point of view and show an empathic understanding of the differences. With our help, you can improve your relationships, make conscious choices to change how you relate to others and learn new skills in effective communication and compromise.

I turned to Florence because I was so frustrated, angry and at the end of my rope all the time, basically overwhelmed on so many levels. Regularly meeting with Florence over a decent length of time enabled me to unravel and explore my past and everything else and draw conclusions to help me change patterns and behaviours that were bringing me such heartache and frustrations. I know my children and partner have benefited hugely from the journey I took with her guidance. Breaking a cycle and changing habits are so very difficult, but every visit I had with Florence made the impossible seem do-able. I would bounce out the door feeling such a weight had been lifted.
