Relationship Counselling with Anna
Our lives are defined by quality of our relationships. We are members of families, school forms, peer groups, work teams. We are sons, daughters, siblings, wives, husbands, grandparents. Mates, friends, business partners.
As social beings we crave the company of others and no matter what personality type we are, we all look to build strong and long lasting relationships.
Relationships can be rewarding, supporting, nurturing, loving, giving and so much more but they can also be challenging, frustrating, boring, and even frightening.
If you find that you struggle with an issue within an important relationship to you, counselling can help to work through the challenge you are facing.
I can help you improve any important relationship in your life. It can be your child or sibling, life partner or business partner, colleague or friend.

Who goes to Relationship Counselling?
You can come together or just by yourself.
I help couples who feel they have lost the connection and understanding, by redesigning their relationship into a new, better working model, even if they think their relationship is beyond repair. We work on changing communication patterns, getting rid of the ‘baggage’ from the past and finding shared values and passions that will take them through for following years.
I help couples struggling with intimacy to find their own way of expressing their love and sexuality with effective strategies and exercises, even if they think they can’t possibly even talk to each other about it.
I help ex-spouses conflicted by legal battle over child maintenance and custody to find a way to amicably communicate over childcare and financial matters with effective conflict resolution exercises and re-framing their relationship, even if they think the bridges have been burned.
I identify the sources of miscommunication and work with you on improving the quality of your communication.
By understanding needs and fears of the other party you will be able to find a way of communicating which will be heard and understood.
By understanding your own needs and fears you will be able to “say what you mean and mean what you say”.
You will learn about conflict resolution, and how to prevent a miscommunication developing into a conflict.
