The quality of our relationships can determine the quality of our lives
How true is this for you and how satisfied do you feel in your relationship?
Either way relationships can be a source of much joy, but on occasion significant pain in our lives. The dynamic that each persons to the relationship, the individual and co-created worlds they inhabit can result in a complex array of problems; from miscommunication or conflicts to disappointments and unmet needs/ expectations.
Couple therapy brings these complex dynamics into awareness and provides a safe, supportive and impartial environment where issues can be reflected on and worked through.
Challenges in any intimate relationship are normal; a relationship doesn't need be in crisis or breaking point for you to talk to someone. But when things feel stuck, repeated or perhaps there's been a breakdown in communication or trust, then relationship therapy can help.
I am conscious that in recent times the way we cohabit and live day to day has changed; perhaps exacerbating underlying issues or tensions. Speaking with a therapist can help you and your partner find new ways to manage in the 'new normal'.
Here are some of the difficulties that can arise and benefit from relationship therapy:
COMMUNICATION ISSUES / STYLE
CHALLENGES WITH INTIMACY
LOSS OF DESIRE
IMPACT OF LOCKDOWN/ COVID
FEELING ALONE/ UNHEARD
These are only some of the issues that can arise in relationships. Therapy can help you gain a better understanding an offers an impartial setting where these challenges can be explored, understood and overcome.
