Romantic relationships have a direct influence on our health, well-being, life-satisfaction and happiness. When children are involved, their well-being and future relationships are impacted as well. And yet, we so often overlook problems in our relationships, allowing feelings of resentment, anger and hopelessness to grow and prevail.
There are various reasons for couples to seek couple therapy. The most common reason is experiencing a major crisis in the relationship, such as an affair. Mental or physical health issues, bereavements, relocating, being first time parents, low job satisfaction and other difficult life situations can also take their toll on a relationship. It may also be that after years of companionship you feel like you are in a rut and both partners feel a bit stuck. All of these issues can be successfully worked with, allowing your relationship to recover and prosper.
Most couples who decide to have couple therapy wish they had asked for help sooner. There is hope at any stage as long as both partners are happy to work on the relationship but the later you leave it, the harder it will be to recover from years of unhelpful relationship patterns, process difficult emotions and learn to look at each other with new eyes. So if you feel your relationship could do with some help, don’t delay, contact me today.
