Recognizing, communicating, and respecting boundaries are important skills for all kinds of relationships. Boundaries outline what is deemed acceptable and unacceptable in relationships. Boundaries also define the distinction between your thoughts, feelings and beliefs and other people’s. Influenced by our families of origin and our experiences, including experiences of violence, boundaries can be rigid or flexible. They can be different depending on the person and the situation.
Boundary setting is a skill that comes with practice. In counselling, I can work with you to help recognize and communicate your boundaries. Together, we can create plans for addressing the difficult boundary setting challenges in your life.
