Building Better Relationships
Who is it for?
Building Better Relationships is an 8-session group designed for couples who are married, going out, living together, heterosexual or LGBTIQ, who want to strengthen and enrich their relationship. The program addresses the needs of couples who want to learn new ways of building their relationship and cope positively with the normal stresses experienced in relationships and family life
What will it be like?
It is common for people to experience some initial anxiety over the prospect of participating in a group, and don’t know what to expect. Being in a group offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. Group participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that groups help in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.
Our groups typically have 8-12 participants. The group facilitators provide information, create discussion, allow for self-reflection, goal setting and learning new skills. You will experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within yourself and in your relationships. Participating in a group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage strong emotions constructively and create the future you want.
- Clarify your problems.
