Healthy relationships are important for our physical and emotional well being

Good, supportive relationships with family, friends and partners will make you feel happy  and content. However, relationships are complex and at times can be difficult. A relationship can become distressed for a variety of reasons.

Relationship Stress Factors

  • Pregnancy
  • Birth of a Child
  • Co-Parenting difficulties
  • Change in Career
  • Physical Health problems
  • Mental Health problems
  • Grief and Loss
  • Affairs
  • Family relationships
  • Financial Stress

  • Stress
  • Anger
  • Jealousy
  • Insecurity
  • Mistrust
  • Suspicion
  • Fear
  • Resentment

Behavioural symptoms of an unhappy relationship

  • Withdrawn
  • Distant
  • Controlling
  • Constantly argumentative
  • Loss of Intimacy
  • Avoiding contact
  • Compliant
  • Highly demanding and critical of your partner
  • Avoiding your partner
  • Involved physically or emotionally with another person

Our MRC Consultants have the experience, background and qualifications to guide you  and your partner to:

  • Develop the skills to resolve conflict

  • Talk about your thoughts and feelings in a productive and constructive way
