It is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK this month – from 16 to 22 May. And this year it is all about relationships.
And that doesn’t just mean romantic relationships – it is all the connections in our lives.
We have relationships with partners, children, parents, siblings, in-laws, friends, bosses and co-workers. And, when these relationships break down we can suffer emotionally. If the problems are left unaddressed they can seriously affect our mental health.
It helps to talk
Often when you are having problems with relationships it helps to talk the issues through with a trained professional. Our psychotherapist is used to helping with all sorts of relationship and other emotional problems.
If you are having difficulties with a loved one, you may benefit from couples counselling. Or perhaps you have had a bad marriage breakup or are struggling with bereavement having lost a partner. At such times a good psychotherapist can help you come to terms with feelings of grief, loss or betrayal and help you find the strength to carry on.
Maybe you are coping with bullying at school or in the workplace and need someone to talk to about the problem. Perhaps you are struggling to talk to a parent about an important issue.
Whatever the relationship problem, a consultation with a psychotherapist may help. Our psychotherapist offers free initial consultations. Call us to book an appointment.
