Relationship Tip#
– Living with another person well might be the hardest thing for which we are not well prepared to do.
– Most of us grow up with the fairy tale of grow up, fall in love and live happily ever after.
– Nobody would give us a job with the level of skill we have in relationships.
Relationships are hard work
– It makes sense to go and study or learn how to do and be in relationship just as we do to gain employment, or to succeed in a career.
Try it.

About the workshop

Workshop Goals:
* To provide you with the opportunity to spend a distraction – free weekend focused on your relationship.

* To validate your conflicts, power struggles and frustrations as predictable and even necessary aspects of a committed relationship.

* To present, demonstrate and practice essential relational tools that will help you understand the conflicts and move you to a higher level of functioning as a couple.

* To clearly show the steps necessary to increase safety and reduce reactivity.

* To help you learn your partners love language.

* To send you home with a jointly created vision of what your ideal relationship will look like and knowledge of tools necessary to take you on the journey to a safe and passionate marriage and relationship.

* To promote you both as a model of relationship for your children.

The workshop is right for you:
* If you want to enrich/ deepen a good relationship.

* If it’s early in your relationship and you would like to establish solid foundations and healthy communication patterns.

Relationships are one of the most rewarding and exciting aspects of our day to day lives. Experiencing companionship, love, belonging, trust and comfort in another presence and reciprocating these feelings to another in return is essential for our physical and mental health. Relationships contribute greatly to that much longed for search for peace.

Yet most of us would also have experienced the cost of love and trust when a close relationship breaks down or ends suddenly. Following the end of a close relationship, feelings of anguish, turmoil, emptiness and a sense of disconnection can very quickly consume our whole being with that sense of peace absolutely shattered.

For some of us, a brief reflection on past relationships reveals a cycle whereby the end of relationships are quickly followed by the establishment of new relationships that, although seeming to flourish initially, all too often end in similar and unsatisfactory circumstances.

Are you at near break-up point and would like support in giving the relationship another shot? Or would you like more fun and enjoyment in your relationship? Relationship or marriage counselling at Brisbane North Counselling can be an opportunity to talk openly about your relationships in a confidential and friendly space. It can help you discover the rewards of real love and the little things that make it last.
