When issues affect the stability of such a relationship, this can result, in some cases, to other physical or mental health difficulties. This can then lead to increased anxiety, even depression, and other psychological concerns.

Couples counselling, Essendon residents appreciate, is a proven step towards improving or recalibrating a relationship.

Our Light Mind Counselling team appreciates that, over time, a range of varied factors usually contribute to the breakdown of a once-strong relationship. This can vary from the historical, perhaps involving a family history of problems, to the work, family, financial or other pressures of everyday life – especially when times are uncertain. Changing life aspirations, hopes or concerns over the future, are other possibilities when considering the stresses upon a relationship.

Recognising and analysing these factors can be the starting point for effective couples counselling. Essendon residents have already turned to the experienced professionals, here at Light Mind Counselling, for the support and strategies needed to amend and strengthen their relationship.
