Relationship Counseling

Do You Find Yourself Overwhelmed By Questions About Your Relationship?

Have you recently lost a relationship that contained tremendous value to you? Perhaps you feel betrayed by your partner. You could even be in a relationship now that’s by no means dysfunctional, it’s just that your needs aren’t begin met. Relationship issues, regardless of your relationship status, can plague us with questions that prevent us from being happy:

  • What am I getting out of this, really?
  • What is this relationship costing me?
  • What do I need to do to change?
  • Should I stay? Should I leave?
  • Are my hopes even realistic?

Conflict is completely natural, but when it falls into cycles and patterns, conflict can lead to stress, unhealthy coping mechanisms, and stifled communication. Relationship counseling can help to provide clarity not only about your expectations, but for the possibilities in your future.

Trust The Decisions You Make Will Be The Right Ones

If your partner is unwilling to join you for relationship counseling, or is on the fence about it, you can still find help addressing your relationship issues. Individuals who don’t want to lose their relationship, but find it impossible to move forward in its current structure, seek relationship counseling to discover answers to the aforementioned questions.

Relationship counseling can help you determine what truly is realistic for you and for your relationship. You will discuss and explore your compromises, your sacrifices, and what the differences between the two are. This type of counseling addresses your expectations, and whether or not they are reasonable. There is no way of knowing what the right thing to do is. But Christine Sprague can help erase self-doubt, and encourage you to trust that after careful, thoughtful analysis, whatever decision you make will be the correct one.

But You Still May Have Questions Or Concerns…

I feel like I should be able to figure this out on my own.

While relationships feel like something we should be naturally equipped to know how to manage, it simply isn’t true. We receive no formal training or how-to instruction for relationships, even though our primary relationships are the ones most important to us and our happiness. We receive mixed messages culturally and personally, so much so that we are overloaded with them.

Eventually, you might be able to manage your relationship issues. But life is short. Be content. Take advantage of the contained and structured methods of experienced, professional, educated support. If you’ve already run up against repeated conflict, you can obtain unbiased and trained guidance.

I’m not sure I can afford relationship counseling.

Cost is the most common objection to any endeavor, but also the easiest to appease when you consider the benefits of your investment. As you gain a more profound understanding of yourself and your expectations, as well as the ways you interact and how your choices affect others, you use that knowledge in all other areas of your life. Every one of your relationships benefits, whether with your children, your friend, or your parents. Any work you do now will provide expansive benefits to the other areas of your life.
