Research shows clearly that having meaningful, supportive and loving relationships has a significant impact on feelings of well-being and mental and physical health. Positive and close relationships can be a huge source of support and directly impact feelings of happiness and fulfilment. When relationships falter or break down, this can therefore lead to a deep level of uncertainty and distress, impacting many areas of our lives. Psychotherapy and counselling can be a tremendous means of support while you try to explore the problems in your relationships. Sometimes, this might be helping to understand the difficulties and dynamics in an existing close relationship, which can be helpful in working towards resolution. Therapy can also be a stabilising means of support if a relationship is breaking down. But also psychotherapy can be very helpful for clients who have difficulty in establishing and keeping meaningful relationships. Through understanding, clients can feel empowered to change unhelpful patterns that might be leading to loneliness and isolation.
