“Relationships are a lot like houses: without a good foundation, they’ll crumble. When a light bulb goes out, you don’t buy a new house, you change the bulb. When the faucet drips, you don’t start mopping the floor before you fix the leak. In other words, no matter how much digging it takes, it’s important to get to the root of a problem.”

Have you noticed a change in your teen that concerns you? Young people have complicated needs and questions that they don't always feel comfortable sharing with the person who wants to help them most...you, their parent! But they still often need a knowledgeable adult to help them through. At Splash Psychology, we have experience working with teens and helping them reach the goal of becoming a healthy, independent adult.

If you think your teen needs an adult to talk to that isn't you, book your appointment today! https://splashyeg.com

Does your partner give you advice or criticize you when you just want them to listen? Or maybe your partner frequently accuses YOU of not listening to THEM. Either way, someone is not being heard in the relationship. If this sounds familiar, consider intentionally practicing stress-reducing conversations. This means one partner speaks and the other practices active listening. When it's your turn to listen: attempt to understand, stay focused on your partner, and express support and validation.

Could this be what’s missing from conversations with your partner? If you feel like you need more support to work things through, we can help!

Has this situation happened to you? Your partner comes home from work and says they had a hard day. You do your best to listen and give advice, but they end up snapping at you. What happened? Sometimes, your partner wants to hear opinions and advice. Other times, they just want you to listen—nothing more. So what can you do to support your partner when they want to vent?

1. Ask the question, “Do you need me to just listen, or do you want me to help you brainstorm what to do next?”
2. Practice stress-reducing conversation techniques.
3. Ask open-ended questions.

Do you and your partner need help learning how to support each other during difficult conversations? We’re accepting new clients via self referral. Visit https://splashyeg.com

Do you struggle with identifying your emotions in the moment? You might not have thought of it this way before, but the purpose of your emotions is to make your body move in some way. Fear makes you run, for example, and anger can make you want to fight. By recognizing the way they make your body react, you can begin to name the emotions you are feeling and know what to do about them.

We are now accepting new patients in Edmonton! Contact us today for more help in dealing with your emotions.

Do you need help dealing with conflict in your relationship? Fighting in a healthy way is difficult, and we understand that. One important thing we suggest is choosing a sentence that you prepare when you’re calm but say when you’re mad and need some separation. This sentence should tell your partner that you love them, that you need a rest, and that you are coming back.

Spend quality time together. allows your partner to know they matter. Quality over quantity fills that emotional bank account! To keep this flourishing, you need to make many more deposits than you do withdrawals, which means more positive interactions than negative ones. A full bank account is always worth the effort!

Do you cringe a little when you see your spouse play a bit rough with the kiddos? While some parents get right in there and wrestle and throw kids around happily, others are less comfortable with the whole idea. However, the experts know that this type of play is actually VERY important!

Do you prioritize joy in your relationship?

Sharing moments of joy and humor with your partner is one of the most effective ways to strengthen your relationship. So, how can you increase and maintain laughter, playfulness, and joy?

Ask your partner open-ended questions to understand what adventure or playfulness means to them. Remember: listen to understand, not to respond.

How do you think we could have more fun together?
What are you most excited about or looking forward to right now?
What one-day adventure could you imagine us having together?

Build rituals of connection with your partner.

Rituals of connection are the behaviors and practices you create together that reinforce your relationship. These rituals can be big, like how you celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Or they can be small, like when you eat dinner together or how you wind down before bedtime.

Communication is at the core of healthy friendships. So, if we want to strengthen our relationships, practicing the art of listening is an effective strategy! Good listening means being present for your friend, not just being in the same room. There is a difference between hearing (passive) and listening (active), after all! is a key ingredient of true listening. If you do it right, the person speaking will not only feel heard, but also understood. Check out this list of good listening tips by the Canadian Mental Health Association to see what you're doing right and what you could do better when listening to your friends.

Are you a people pleaser?

Learn to identify your own needs and wants.

Figure out what you really want from beneath the layers of conditioned people-pleasing. Journaling, meditation, or self-reflection are excellent ways to discover your needs.

Are you a people pleaser? Return to your body.

People-pleasing leads to chronically living in others’ minds, hearts, and bodies. A great way to return to and prioritize the self is to literally return to the self with a grounding exercise. If you’re in a scenario where you’re likely to people-please, say, “let me think about that,” and take a pause to pay attention to your body. From this place, you might ask yourself, "what do you want right now?" and see what arises.

Are you a people pleaser?

Set boundaries.

Boundaries are a form of self-protection. They clearly assert what you will or will not tolerate and set clear expectations and limitations in your relationships with others. For the most challenging boundaries, consider writing down some simple scripts and practice them in advance.
