Like everything in life, nothing stays the same. Most couples at various stages of their relationships struggle with conflict or disharmony. These issues can sometimes be resolved but often for many reasons, the relationship deteriorates, and the feelings of closeness that you once experienced seem to be disappearing day by day. Over time, you can start to move in different directions and what was once a connection slowly becomes a disconnection – a fork in the road.
Enrich relationships is a positive and caring marriage and couples counselling service committed to helping couples find a way back to a happier and better life. Whether you are a couple in crisis or you simply need some direction, I will assist you in finding a way towards a better relationship with your partner.
Hi I’m Nicki Weekly. We all think that through perseverance, our relationship will withstand the test of time. However it often gets to a point where nothing is working and life is no longer easy or workable. Relationship therapy can be a wonderful resource to help guide you through this time.
Through years of working in private industry and community settings, the past ten years I have been working in private practice providing relationship counselling both online and in person. Through dealing with hundreds of couples, I understand the complexity of personal challenges and relationship difficulties.
Areas I can help with:
Are you finding it difficult or stressful coping with a recent life transition like having a baby, getting married, moving house or retirement? I can help you explore coping strategies.
Intimacy and sexuality
Closeness is something that can slip away without you even realising. I can help you to reform a trusting and positive partnership through addressing important issues with self esteem and trust.
Anxiety and depression
If you feel that you or your partner are depressed or anxious, it may be time to take action. You may be feeling sad or lost and a sense of being alone or unable to cope. It may be affecting your relationship or your life in general. Reaching out to someone who can help you is the first step towards a better life.
Anger is a feeling that comes from a place of sadness. Through anxiety, stress or
feelings of inadequacy or failure- an uncomfortable feeling is reached which often results in anger. I can help you understand this strong emotional feeling, its origins and ways to deal with this,
Grief and loss
The process of adapting to any form of grief or loss can be very different from one person to another. Any significant loss can involve sadness, guilt, and anger. Grief may vary from a broken heart, a job loss , to losing someone close to you. Therapy helps you feel supported and understood in a caring and non-judgemental way.
How counselling works
Common reasons for seeking help may include:
Each person is unique and I believe that this is the basis of counselling. Clients are treated as individuals who have their own set of circumstances and life stories.
I will help you gain a better understanding of yourself and others close to you which can help you find a more manageable way forward. Ultimately, you are striving to connect with those close to you and find fulfilment in your life.
