Is your relationship heading south?
Is your relationship heading south?
Your relationship has changed, but you’re not sure when it happened. All you know is that you don’t communicate like you did. You’re not as loving as you were. You’d like your partner to put you first – to consider your feelings again. You’ve even had thoughts of leaving, but all that did was make you feel guilty for thinking it.
Before things get worse, take a positive step. Book an online relationship counselling session with an experienced therapist.
Strengthen your emotional connection in a supportive environment, where you can discuss issues and find the solutions to deepen your relationship. These online relationship counselling sessions are for both partners together.
When two people divorce, it’s rarely an amicable arrangement
Divorce can bring out the worst in a couple. Anger. Grief. Fighting for property, for custody of children. Meetings ending in shouting matches. Neither party taking responsibility and playing the blame game.
None of this behaviour helps people feel better. In fact, it drives a wedge further between the divorced couple, making any hope of a civilised split fade into the distance.
Counselling can help you move forward
Online counselling sessions can be really beneficial to both of you. A counsellor can help you manage the grief, loss and anger you feel and encourage you to move forward.
Often a husband may feel confusion about how to relate to his children and his wife after a divorce, or a wife may not know just how much children are affected during this traumatic time, because they act as if everything’s fine.
Online sessions with an experienced, impartial counsellor gives you a base for working through issues raised and helps you to plan for the future.
You can attend shared sessions from different locations, and discuss solutions with the therapist mediating.
Many people try to hide their habit, but inside they want to stop. The constant search for the next fix, the next high, the rush from addictive gambling, internet gaming, binge drinking, cigarettes or other substance abuse is all about looking for elusive happiness, being satisfied, and instant gratification.
But addiction does not bring happiness.
Its vice-like grip tightens on an addict, squeezing out their integrity, their will power, and their decency. It traps them in a downward spiral to the point where they think of nothing else. It ruins lives. It ruins relationships. And it ruins families. It is Danger with a capital D.
Get your life back on track with online counselling.
Online sessions with an experienced counsellor, from an unbiased point of view, can encourage you to discuss options for your treatment program and set you on the path to recovery.
And if you have a family member in need of mediation, but they won’t attend an appointment, online counselling is definitely the way to go.
The trauma of sexual abuse – whether can deeply damage your sense of self-worth
It’s common to feel anxious, depressed, humiliated and ashamed, and to lose sleep, to avoid intimacy and experience issues with trust.
You could also experience flashbacks, be fearful of going out or being alone. Everyone is different, and our skilled and highly trained online counsellors understand this. They’ll gently help you regain trust, to feel safe, to restore your sense of self and wellbeing.
Online counselling means that you can have your sessions in the comfort and security of your own home, at times to suit you.
Children who have been sexually abused often continue to suffer after the abuse has ended. They may feel confused, and have mixed feelings. They can feel guilty, believing that in some way they are responsible for the abuse. If their abuser told them something dreadful will happen if they tell anyone, they may be afraid and see the world as scary place.
Everyone is different and our skilled and highly trained online counsellors understand this. They’ll gently help you or your child to regain trust. To feel safe. To restore your sense of self and wellbeing. Online counselling means that you can have your sessions in the comfort and security of your own home, at times to suit you. And if your child is being counselled, you can be there for them to give them support.
FIFO work can seem like a good idea in the beginning. Great money and the chance to get ahead financially is a big drawcard for couples who have been struggling from pay cheque to pay cheque.
But for the worker, weeks away at a time on the job, and long working hours can lead to loneliness, depression and exhaustion. Their partner is left with the day-to-day issues of running the family home, plus looking after young kids – without emotional and moral support.
FIFO workers are also at risk of suffering mental health issues, with suicides on the increase. It’s more important than ever that you seek help at the first sign of any issues.
If you recognise that your FIFO relationship has problems, contact us now. We can help both you and your partner, with our online therapy and mediation sessions. Both of you can be on a session together, even though you’re away and your partner is at home. Our non-judgemental approach is the perfect basis for our counselling program.
When you’re hurting inside and out, online counselling is the way to go.
Depression and anxiety can have many causes, such as problem relationships, isolation or loneliness, or fear of situations that may never happen.
Depression and anxiety can also lead to self-harm, which people may use as a coping mechanism for difficult or painful feelings.
These are big issues to have and you need sensitive counselling. Our online sessions are the way to go. Connect with a non-judgmental, experienced counselor who can help you recover your motivation, your perspective and the joy you once had in your life.
Don’t hide your pain and wait until your situation gets worse. Our online therapist are available to help you now.
Online counselling for trauma or PTSD provides a safe haven for you
Traumatic experiences can leave you feeling persistently anxious, fearful, angry or very sad.
When you experience or see a highly stressful or traumatic event, one that threatens your life or the lives of those around you, such as a serious accident, natural disaster, horrifying criminal action, war, torture, physical or sexual assault, or other terrifying events, you could be suffering from post-traumatic stress.
We typically think of PTSD as applying to armed services personnel, but workers in emergency organisations, paramedics or aid workers who have witnessed a horrendous event can also suffer PTSD. It’s so important that you get help. Our online counsellors provide a safe haven for you to make your journey to recovery, so make an appointment now to begin your healing.
Online counselling for your child or youth –wherever they are.
If your child or youth has problems like suspension from school, anxiety, anger issues, self-harming behaviour, addiction, or they’ve been a victim of abuse or witnessed or been on the receiving end of domestic violence, online counselling can work wonders.
No matter where your child or youth lives in Australia, online counselling crosses all state borders and time zones. We have counsellors who specialise in different issues, so you’ll always find the right help for your child.
When your child is at school through the day, online counselling can fit in with the times when they are available. It’s also a way for your child to feel safe, because they’re in their own home – unless they want their sessions to be from another location.
Discuss your options with us, or make an appointment now for your child or youth. The longer an issue is ignored, the longer it will take to heal.
