Couples Trust and Commitment Counselling,
Building Strong Bonds in Relationships

Counselling for Commitment Issues

Love and companionship are two of the most important things in a relationship, but sometimes things can go wrong that can damage the trust and commitment between you and your partner. In today’s world, where things can get busy and stressful, it can be hard to build or maintain trust and commitment in the first place. Sometimes this can lead to varying levels of commitment phobia.

 “Commitment phobia is like a self-imposed prison, keeping us from the deeper connections we crave.” – Unknown

Whether it’s a violation of trust caused by infidelity, persistent communication issues, or personal issues that affect your ability to commit fully, trust and commitment issues can take a toll on your relationship over time. That’s where our couples counselling for trust and commitment issues comes in – it’s a safe space for you and your partner to work through your issues, talk about them, and learn from each other. Our Couples Counsellors at Blanchardstown Therapy Centre are happy to support you on this journey!


How Commitment Phobia Can Arise

When you’re in love and in a relationship, it’s easy to fall in love all over again. But when it comes to commitment, some people just can’t seem to commit. Whether it’s a fear of commitment, a fear of long-term relationships, a fear of being emotionally vulnerable, or a fear of the responsibility that comes with commitment, there are many reasons why someone might not want to commit.

Some people are afraid of commitment because of something that happened to them in the past, or because they’re afraid of commitment. Others are afraid because of something they’ve done in the past that didn’t go as well as they wanted. Some people are afraid because they’ve been in a relationship before and don’t want to do it again. Relational Anxiety with your partner can arise from various sources.

The Roots of Trust Issues

  1. Previous Betrayal: infidelity or broken promises can have a significant impact on a person’s ability to trust a new relationship. Long-term feelings of hurt and mistrust from past relationships can continue to affect a new relationship.
  2. Fear of Vulnerability: Some people find it difficult to open up emotionally and be vulnerable. Fear of getting hurt or rejected can lead to a lack of commitment to a relationship.
  3. Attachment Styles: Childhood attachment styles can have an impact on how an individual approaches relationships. People with anxious attachment may be afraid of abandonment, while people with avoidant attachment may have difficulty with intimacy and commitment.
  4. Insecurities: Having low self-esteem, feeling inadequate, or feeling like you are not good enough for your partner can lead to commitment fears. These fears can prevent you from fully engaging in your relationship.
  5. Poor Communication: Less than good communication can lead to misunderstandings and uncertainty about the status or future of your relationship.
  6. External Pressures: Social expectations, family beliefs, and cultural standards can push you to make certain relationship decisions. These external pressures can lead to internal conflict and commitment dilemma.
  7. Fears of Loss of Independence: Some people may fear that if they commit to a relationship, they will lose their freedom or independence. This fear can prevent them from fully embracing the commitment.
  8. Relationship History: Growing up with a history of failed relationships or unhealthy relationships in one’s family can lead to skepticism about the potential for a successful, committed relationship.
  9. Unresolved Emotional Baggage: Growing up with unresolved emotional baggage, such as traumas or unresolved conflicts from one’s past, can affect an individual’s trust and commitment.
  10. Lack of Role Models: Growing up with unhealthy, committed relationship models can lead to a lack of understanding of what a committed relationship looks like and how it works.
  11. Different Expectations: Partners often have different expectations about how long a relationship should last or how long it should last. When these expectations are out of sync, it can lead to doubt and conflict.

Navigating Fear of Commitment Through Counselling

At our practice, we recognize that trust can be affected by a range of factors. Our counsellors are available to provide a secure environment for partners to share their emotions and concerns, and to facilitate open dialogue to address the underlying trust issues.

We offer guided conversations and exercises to help couples begin the process of trust rebuilding, allowing them to learn how to communicate openly and feel secure. We also provide personalized guidance on communication skills, such as active listening, assertiveness, and conflict resolution, to help couples bridge gaps, express vulnerability, and build a stronger emotional bond.

Additionally, our therapists are experienced in dealing with the complex emotions associated with infidelity in couples relationships, and we work with partners to heal wounds, identify underlying causes, and create a path to forgiveness and relationship renewal.


How We Can Help You With Emotional Detachment


1. Assessment of Relational Anxiety

Our therapists will begin the process by conducting a tailored assessment to identify the root causes of commitment anxiety. This assessment will then be used to create a personalized counselling plan that is tailored to the individual’s individual concerns.

2. Identifying Past Relationship Pattern

We will then help you to identify any prior relationships, experiences or influences that may have caused them to be concerned about commitment. By recognizing the source of their fears, the client can work to alleviate them and open up new opportunities.

3. Working on Greater Self-Awareness

Self-discovery is essential for overcoming commitment fears, and our counselors will provide techniques and exercises to help clients identify their core values, ambitions, and desires, which will then enable them to make informed decisions regarding their relationships.

4. Encouragement of Vulneraiblity

Our approach to building trust and vulnerability involves providing clients with exercises to help them develop the ability to communicate their concerns and needs to their partners, allowing them to form a stronger bond.

5. Increasing the Exposure to Committment

Finally, our approach to commitment involves gradually increasing the amount of time spent in conversation and reflective exercises, allowing individuals to become more comfortable with commitment over time.
