For the past 20 years, Guidelight Psychology has had the privilege of assisting thousands of individuals in our region, through one on one consultations about everyday issues and challenges that affect that person’s well-being and peace of mind. In one particular calendar year, we committed to the task of asking every client who presented for an initial consultation and who was currently employed, to identify the key issues that would typically restrict them from thinking and feeling at their best in dealing with work and home-life balance issues. More than half these people, a staggering 53% of everyone we asked, said that the number one reason they were seeking our assistance was to better deal with relationship difficulties that were interfering with their sense of well-being.
For some of these clients the relationship issues were primarily centred around people in their workplace like a colleague, boss, customer or suppliers. Other clients indicated that relationship issues with spouses or children or extended family at home were their primary concern. Sometimes clients identified that both work and home relationships were collectively under pressure to the point where the person could no longer think or feel at their best.
It is heartening to be reminded that most of these relationship difficulties can be healthily improved with the right guidance around advanced positive psychology tools and communication strategies that enable the client to develop broader perspectives and insights.
