Are you and your business partner having communication problems, arguing all the time and perhaps lost trust in each other’s performance? If you fear that your working relationships you built your business on are fading away, then perhaps Partnership Counselling is the solution to your problems.
Partnerships that form in a business and work environment do often work as a “marriage” between two or more people. They can be also seen as a “familiar” environment where you can experience and suffer ongoing and unaddressed stresses that can leave you and y our partner/s feeling exhausted, depressed, desperate and with low self-esteem.
Same as in a marriage, when a relationship is at breaking point it can seem as if separation or “divorce” is your only option, but talking through your problems together with a partnership relationship counsellor will help you get to the heart of your conflicts and come to value each other’s beliefs and feelings. Our experienced relationship therapists will work with you and your work partner together to help you rebuild your relationship in the easiest way possible.
Your therapist’s aim is not to resolve the issues for you, but to develop your skills so you can resolve the issues yourselves. They will encourage you to talk openly about difficult topics and explore your working history together. By analysing your behavioural patterns and the ways in which you communicate with each other, they will also help you see discrepancies in your and your partner’s behaviour and teach you techniques to improve your communication.
Ultimately, we work to support you as a partnership to identify patterns and modes of communication and behaviours so you can both take responsibility for your own choices and actions and work out the best way for you to resolve your complications.
