Couple issues

Couples may seek help with their relationship because:

  • Past the honeymoon period, they feel let down and disillusioned
  • They are no longer communicating. One or both partners feel that their voice is not being heard. When emotions run high, or on the contrary seem dead, frustration and resentment make dialogue impossible
  • Their constant arguments escalate
  • They feel stuck in a toxic relationship, but don't know how to separate
  • They are struggling with the aftermath of an affair
  • Sex and/or intimacy are or have become an issue
  • Intercultural/interracial issues in the couple are causing tensions
  • Ageing and retirement are having an impact on the relationship
  • Or partners just want to make things better than they are, and are interested in sharing the process of therapy together

One of the benefits of couple therapy is that it provides the opportunity to be together as a couple and talk about issues there is no time to discuss when the obligations of ordinary life (work, children, etc.) take over.
