Relationships make the world go round. That’s a fact. Without them we would all be sorely stressed – and very lonely. We all need them as no man - or woman - is an island. The question is do we value them and believe they are worthy of time, effort commitment and attention?
Somebody once said of Jesus - recognised by many as the greatest teacher on life, love and human relationships – “that everything he did was based on relationships.” Quite a powerful statement. If it was true of him, could it be true for us also? Is it worth it? Is that potentially a good goal to have?
A definition of relationships in the Cambridge Dictionary is, “the way in which two or more people feel and behave towards each other.” And normally in relationship counselling we assume the couple will be in a romantic relationship – as partners or spouses. (Although in my role couple counselling in Kettering, Northants, I have also counselled people who are in non-romantic family relationships that have broken down). And with the stresses of modern day life, even more so than in the past, relationships are taking strain, under threat and - for some – crumbling and breaking. Terribly painful for all concerned. Ruined relationships hurt everyone – the people directly involved, their children if any, extended family, friends, society in general.
Is it worth trying to save a relationship? I believe it is ALWAYS worth trying to – regardless of what that relationship is. Unless there is a risk of physical harm or abuse. And so to answer the question of, "Why relationship counselling?", we can say that to see reconciliation come and some measure of healing accomplished is always rewarding for those involved. And very gratifying as a relationship counsellor. As a marriage and couple counsellor in Kettering, I specialise in relationship counselling for Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough couples, etc. If you click through to my website you can look at the “Testimonials” tab to see what previous clients have said of how they’ve been helped.
