Us humans are social creatures. Our connection to others is not only key to our survival, but can also play a pivotal role in our mental health and wellbeing.
When our relationships are humming along well, we tend to feel respected, accepted, valued and understood. On the flip side, when we have ongoing difficulties in our relationships, we can end up feeling depressed, confused, rejected, empty and alone.
It’s human to have some ups and downs in relationships from time to time. If you’ve noticed this is a bit of a pattern for you though, there is a lot relationship counselling can do to help you feel more secure and satisfied in your relationships.
