The COVID-19 outbreak is quite concerning and worrying for a lot of people.
What is also difficult is spending a lot of time at home with a partner which can cause more fights than normal .
Are you worried what isolating will do to your relationship? We are here to help with relationship counselling.
The positive side of this virus is it gives us the opportunity to work on whats important, our relationships.
Because your at home with loved ones you have more of an opportunity to work through difficult things but also learn more about how to support each other better.
We really want to help you feel better about:
- How you both communicate. Speak better and understand communication can build better connections
- How to fight better . Yes we all fight but lets learn how to fight and be on the same team.
- Focusing on what’s important: your values. Ever really talked about what’s important for your partner? This can be a great way to prioritize and focus on what’s missing in the relationship

At risk couples
Another major issue that we are concerned about is the rise of family violence and controlling behaviours with couples being at home more together.
With increased distress, financial hardship and limited space these escalations are more likely. This means we need to help couples slow down arguments and remain respectful.
We should all feel safe at home so if you are worried about being self isolated with your partner please reach out to us.
