Therapy for Couples
All couples in a long term relationship, no matter how well suited they may be, will experience periods of difficulty throughout their relationship. This can sometimes be for specific reasons such as financial difficulties, infidelity, stress or bereavement.
However, these difficult times can also happen for no apparent reason and may happen suddenly and without warning. This may be because you and your partner are not effectively communicating or because neither of you are aware what the problem really is.
By making the decision as a couple to come to counselling, you have made the first step in improving the communication in your relationship. In the safe and non-judgemental therapeutic environment, you can feel free to discuss thoughts and feelings that you may not feel able to share with friends or family and if you would like to introduce your partner into the therapy at a later stage, this can be discussed, or it can be kept as a time just for yourself to work through the thoughts, feelings and difficulties that we all struggle with in our lives.
