Find an I Matter Informed Relationship Health Practitioner
SUPPORTING YOU IN STARTING AN YOUR I MATTER JOURNEY
Relationship Health is a very new, very important and very overlooked term.
So Relationship Health Practitioner is also a very new term
So it may not be easy to find an I Matter informed relationship health practitioner - yet
That said, there are many practitioners who will likely identify with the general term Relationship Health Practitioner.
This could include people who describe themselves as therapists eg:
Child and Family Therapists
Couples Counsellors or Therapists
However there are others who might identify with this term such as:
In the I Matter Project we think of Relationship Health Practice as an umbrella idea.
It needs a name as the centrality of relationship health needs to be given more importance.
The I Matter Framework brings together the research evidence to show the robust foundations and it aims to offer a language that professionals with diverse backgrounds can use to support better work together..
A lot of the ideas in Relationship Health Practice are not new and are not rocket science.
However the premises and the skills involved of this approach are too often shrouded in confusion and/or not present in routine health and education, community and mental health practitioner or therapist practice. So it can be bewildering for professionals and families to try to function in systems which seem blind to the obvious.
After much reflection we have concluded that Relationship Health Practice itself needs a protective process
We think of this as building a Community Hub (a nest) in which the language starts to be used.
I Matter Training works in partnership with Relationship Health Matters CIC therefore to progress this goal with individuals and organisations
