OCT 29 2012 / Don't be afraid to deal with relationship issues
Sometimes, relationship issues can be scary things to face. With Halloween upon us, it's time to face those demons and blow away the cobwebs with our six tips to make relationships less frightening:
1) Talking to a Relate counsellor can help you to dig up those long buried problems and clear out the skeletons from the cupboards... The only way to solve and move on from relationship problems is to face them - no matter how scary that might seem.
2) Children can sometimes seem like little horrors, but our Family Counselling and courses for parents can offer ways to communicate more effectively with your children and build better relationships across your family.
3) Talking to a counsellor can help exorcise any ghosts from the past that might still be haunting your current relationship - whether it's something that happened with an ex partner or a troubled family life when you were growing up.
4) If your sex life is turning into a bit of a nightmare, Relate's professional and friendly sex therapists can offer support to make it enjoyable again.
5) Are you being haunted by underlying issues with other family members like your brother, sister or in-laws? Don’t forget that Family Counselling can support you to have good relationships with any
6) If life in general is just feeling a bit hellish and you feel like the whole world is after you, talking to Relate can help. No matter how young or old you are, we can offer support to face your demons and move on from them.
Making that first step to overcome relationship issues doesn't have to be scary - simply call 0300 100 1234 to see how we can help you.
