Couples and relationship counselling on the Gold Coast
Making relationships work today requires commitment and the Will to want to stay committed. Psychologists today are identifying couples are struggling to stay connected in their relationships and intimacy. The growing world of social media continuously challenges people’s psychological perceptions, creating challenges in their relationships. Counselling at Voxen focuses on the traditions of a relationship and why people come together in the first place. Many psychologists are identifying that couples in today’s society are finding it challenging to stay together or deeply connected in their relationships based the new norms and expectations on each partner. The gender roles are reversed in many fields of society and male and female equality adding to this process leaves the internal emotions and thoughts still very traditional in individuals. Society is moving very quickly in the world of acceptance and changes, the new norms, and in our psyche we are struggling to align. If your relationship is challenged or struggling, listen to the words of the psychologists and go seek mental health support with counselling at Voxen psychotherapist at our Miami, Gold Coast rooms.
Family counselling and therapy
Family therapy locally at Miami on the Gold Coast Highway half a block up from Miami 1. Who goes to family therapy I hear you asking? When we have communication issues or difficulty with our children or our parents for that matter, family counselling becomes a very important. In today’s society, we have changed so many things and we are living in 3 different generations at the same time. We baby boom generation still trying to navigate the internet world and computers and now phones that do all that and more. We have generation X, who are the mums and dads currently in society, raised by the baby boomer and brought up with old school values and who were at the forefront of the computer and internet world. Generation X experiences the change over and had to learn quickly if not directly involved in the creation of our current society. Lastly, we have generation Y, the generation who grew up with the new world of computers, internet and the phones. This generation came with all the savviness of the computer and internet world and launched into the world of social media as a natural progression of being the generation of the computer and internet era. Now along with all these changes has come a voice of the minority leading to more changes in society, such as a genderless individual, or gays relationships, or women and men equality. For many of baby boomers with generation Y children this has been a difficult thing to 1. Understand and 2. Accept, and sadly has cause multiple stress and strain of family relationships. Counselling at Voxen helps the repair of such relationships and supports families through the process of understanding and accepting creating a new norm of being.
Children and teenagers who maybe victims in a divorce and are struggling to make sense of the separation of their parents, counselling at Voxen support the child’s adjustment process and supports the interpretations of the child to have a healthy understanding of the family dynamics.
Teenagers experience cognitive changes between the ages of 12-19 years of age and along with all the adolescent changes the teenagers experience, it is difficult to stay focused or engaged in school studies. Our counsellor has had more than 20 years of experience in working with teenagers and child psychology. Making a specialised organisation in working with children and teenage psychological issues.
When a family structure changes the children or adolescents needs added support through the adjustment process. This is a good time to introduce your child to a psychological worker. Psychology with children happens differently than with adults. Children do not have the ability to sit and talk about their issues, fears or feelings. We use various therapy methods when working with children. Some examples of these are: – Sand play therapy, painting therapy, drawing therapy, play therapy, Colouring therapy, Craft therapy, just to name a few.
Teenagers may not be willing or able to have conversations with their parents about events and things that go on at school or with their friends, this is when a therapist becomes important for the family dynamic and keeping the communication open for the teenager.
