Couples Counselling

Blanchardstown Counselling Services provides you with tools and skills necessary for making your couples relationship successful. Couples counselling includes any form of relationship counselling, for example marriage counselling, premarital counselling, and counselling for partners who are living together or dating.

Things are not as they used to be

If you’re in a relationship, things might not feel as comfortable as they once did! Do you occasionally feel alone and cut off from your partner? Do you two still communicate? Do you each have varying expectations of one another? Do you often argue? Do you two tend to distance yourselves frequently? Perhaps you frequently accuse and criticize your partner?

Any relationship can deteriorate over time for a variety of reasons, including personality differences, conflicting life goals, divergent expectations for the relationship, doubt about commitment, and inadequate communication. Last but not least, challenging times in life and unanticipated events can bring a lot of stress to relationships. Every partnership eventually has a difficult time. In actuality, most partnerships eventually experience this, which is both unavoidable and expected!

In our material world, love can be contaminated and distorted and associated with control, dependency, possession, lust, rejection, jealousy, hurt, abandonment and abuse. This has been the past experience of ‘love’ for many… Thus, to provide a different model of love is, in itself, therapeutic and healing.
