Izaak helps individuals and couples with relationship issues. Relationship issues often occur due to changes or added pressures that were not present previously in the relationship and that have not been addressed effectively. These issues can also arise from unhealthy interactions between people who may require certain relationship skills or tools that may have never been modelled, developed or taught. In Relationship counselling, Izaak helps people understand the actual interactive process between the couple or parents and children or any other relations. This allows them to better understand what is required to enhance the quality of their relationship. Izaak objectively works with all individuals involved with the aim of achieving successfully desired outcomes.
Counselling in relationship issues can assist individuals, couples and families to understand the relationship they currently share, to improve their lives and well beings, and to achieve the ultimate goal which is happiness in the relationship.
QOLT counselling sessions are conducted face to face. During counselling sessions in Family and relationship, Izaak does not make judgements on who is right or wrong; he does not influence clients what to do and he does not attempt to persuade couples to stay together or to separate.
A good relationship with your partner is vital to your well-being. When we experience difficulties or when a relationship breaks down, we can feel anger, confusion, disappointment, sadness, resentment, or a sense of grief and loss. It may be difficult to manage alone. Often we can’t see or understand how the issue/s started or how it all went wrong. Research indicates that couples counselling is more successful when couples seek expert help early. The sooner you can start working on understanding and improving your relationship, the better it is to sustain a healthy and lasting relationship. Premarital counselling is a type of therapy that helps couples prepare for marriage.
