All relationships begin with the intention of lasting a long time. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and for various reasons, we give up hope and relationships eventually break down. Couples are often under strain due to life's pressures e.g. financial, children, work etc. Patterns of behaviour can determine your intimate relationship and your future goals, joint interests and commitment all play a part in the happiness of a relationship. Having therapy doesn't necessarily mean patching up a broken relationship as we can't always fix what is broken. However, together, we can look at what needs adjusting or improving and I am here to help you look at that.
Once we have explored why you are here, we work collaboratively to find ways to improve and build your relationship by thinking about necessary changes, how to contain arguments and intimacy in the relationship.
Alternatively, one or both of you may be contemplating separation and having these discussions is too difficult to do on your own. I will support you through this process and help you to find the easiest and least painful route possible.
