It might be difficult to understand why some long-term relationships endure while others do not. From a distance, it could appear to be the cruelest and most unnerving kind of lottery. The perception that one or both partners did not feel heard, that something very significant to them had been overlooked and that their point of view had not, at a fundamental level, been acknowledged and appreciated, is the real cause of a breakup.
- Dealing with Heartbreak
The process of getting over heartbreak can be emotionally and mentally taxing. After a breakup or the end of a relationship, it's common to experience a range of emotions, including sadness, anger, grief, and confusion. Seeking support from friends and family, practicing self-care, and going to therapy to process your emotions and better understand your feelings are just a few of the many diverse ways that can be useful in coping with heartbreak.
- Relationship Counselling
However, by obtaining relationship counselling at the appropriate moment, it is possible to avoid broken relationships. A type of therapy called relationship counselling aids both individuals and couples in resolving problems and conflicts in their relationships. Couples who are having problems with intimacy, communication, or other issues that are leading to conflict or discontent in their relationship may find it useful.
- Counselling for Queer Couples
Although, couples who fall outside the cis-heternormative umbrella may find it challenging to seek professional help for serious problems in their relationship due to fear of judgment or worse. Couple therapy for queer people is designed to meet the specific needs of LGBTQ+ couples by providing them with a safe space to work through their problems. At Another Light, we take into account the context and the barriers and provide queer affirmative therapy. It can be helpful for couples who are facing unique challenges related to their sexual orientation or gender identity and are seeking support and guidance in navigating those challenges.
- Marriage Counselling
And for issues that arise in the context of marriage, marriage counselling can be helpful in finding ways to improve that couple’s relationship and strengthen their bond. It can provide a safe and supportive space for couples to communicate openly and honestly about their feelings and concerns, and to work through any issues that are causing strain on their relationship.
With the willingness to cooperate with each other, and the right guidance, a couple may find their bond has gotten stronger than before. Couples can learn effective communication skills and techniques for resolving conflicts in a healthy and constructive way. By learning how to effectively manage and resolve conflicts, couples can reduce the frequency and intensity of arguments and improve overall relationship satisfaction. They can better understand and meet each other's emotional needs, which can lead to a deeper sense of connection and intimacy. Couples can learn how to work together to identify and solve problems, which can help to improve overall happiness in the relationship. Couple therapy can also help couples to better understand each other's perspectives and needs, which can lead to greater acceptance and appreciation of one another.
