Cross-Cultural Relationships

Cross-Cultural Counselling in Coburg

Have you ever considered the following questions? Ask yourself -

What does family mean to me?

What does culture mean to me? How will my culture impact on my relationship and family?

Which cross-cultural issues will affect me? (if any)

Which faith will I practice? When it comes to children, will they be christained - my faith or my partner's faith; or both?

If your answer is yes, you need to consider whether these issues are going to be problematic in the future as situations arise where a decision needs to be made and a clash of cultural wills may prevent logic and common sense to prevail.

Counselling services are available at RelateWell Centre in Coburg.

Some areas explored but not limited to:

  • Not being accepted by his/her family
  • Not living up to expectations and feeling inadequate or judged
  • Conflict about religious ceremonies
  • Over involved in-laws/parents
  • Isolation and feeling left-out
  • Being cut-off
  • Parenting/grandparenting issues
  • How to improve communication
  • Standing up for yourself without offending
  • Resolving conflict

The manner in which we understand, welcome and communicate difference as a couple will play a major role in determining how effectively we incorporate and deal with cultural issues as they arise in our everyday lives.
