Relationship Counselling Gold Coast

Relationships effect our everyday lives and sometimes managing difficult or painful relationships can be detrimental to your mental wellbeing. Disagreements are natural, particularly with those people closest to you. Every person has their own experiences that form opinions, perspectives, limitations and expectations. However, what makes everyone unique can sometimes set people apart if not managed well. This can be upsetting and damaging when it comes to significant relationships in your life.

Major conflict or ongoing disputes can become a chronic stressor and may lead to withdrawal, isolation, loneliness, exclusion and poor health. Prolonged avoidance or suppression are unhealthy coping mechanisms, so it’s important to find strategies that positively manage interaction and communications that maintain or improve key relationships. These can be at home, amongst peers, colleagues or within your community.o

Types of interpersonal relationship issues may include:

  • Continual lack of emotional support or understanding
  • Toxic communication styles of abuse or aggression
  • Discrepancies in verbal and non-verbal communication
  • Ghosting or prolonged ignoring
  • Excessive jealousy
  • Demanding behaviours or coercive control
  • Inappropriate use of power
  • Underlying resentments
  • Gaslighting and manipulation
  • Inability to let go or move forward (post resolution)
  • Disrespect and dishonesty
  • Constant feeling of unfulfillment and negatively during or after interaction

If you are experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety caused by negative relationships, it’s important to address the situation and look after your health. At Well Life Counselling we take the time to understand your unique circumstances – historical factors and triggers that have led to conflict or breakdown of a significant relationship. We’ll support you on developing healthy coping strategies that work towards your desired outcomes.
