Marriage / Relationships
Many people today find that they have problems in their relationships but do not always know why or how to deal with these issues. Often partners lose the art of learning how to communicate with each other or find that they engage in unhealthy ways of relating. As a result, people can feel stuck, feel hopeless, helpless, or even resentful.
The good news is that the professional counselors at Healing Telephone Counselling are trained in helping people to find solutions to the problems they are facing in their relationships.
Common issues that can occur, and become problematic, in a relationship include:
unhealthy communication styles
built up resentment, frustration
an overall lack of problem solving
Partners can end up feeling disconnected, controlled, worthless, and/or misunderstood. If these thoughts, feelings, or unhealthy behaviors continue to recur, relationships can suffer
The Healing Telephone counselors can help you and/or your partner understand why thoughts and feelings arise and help you find ways to begin to bring meaning and joy back in to your relationship. Exploring patterns of relatedness, communication styles, and goals in your relationships can begin by a phone call to an objective, well-trained counselor.
What can you expect from telephone counseling?
Using the phone to talk with a counselor is not much different than what you could expect from an office visit. The therapy we offer at Healing Telephone Counselling, by way of the telephone, can be as effective, or even more effective, than the traditional in-office visits.
You may have anxieties or concerns about office visits and may not be as willing to open up and truly express your feelings and thoughts because it seems too overwhelming or intimidating to sit down, face-to-face with a counselor. By using the telephone, you can discuss without the self-consciousness you may experience sitting across from a mental health professional.
We have many professionals available to help you.
The first step to engaging in therapy is to select from our list of highly qualified professionals. You can do this by both choosing from the list of on this page, and reviewing the different the counselor's profile and listening to an audio introduction if available. Start gradually with a free consultation.
We offer a free 10 minute screening to ensure that you would like to work with that counselor, as it is important that you feel that there is a good match. Once you choose your therapist, you can begin therapy in a way that feels most comfortable to you.
It all starts with learning about your needs.
Your therapist may initially ask you questions about your concerns; explore how your issues are impacting your life, and what are some of your goals. You can choose the pace at which you want to go. This means you can slowly address your issues, or you can choose to share your problems in your initial phone session.
You can expect your counselor to be a non-judgmental, supportive individual. He or she may ask you questions about your thoughts and feelings, and help guide you to exploring issues surrounding your concerns. The counselors at Healing Telephone Counselling are invested in helping you to achieve the goals you would like. They can help provide knowledge and tools that enable you to deal more effectively with your problems.
