Every relationship experiences its highs and lows as all things in life do. Human beings are complex as individuals so when two people share their lives, the complexity is exponential. On the upside, that is what makes life interesting but people may also find themselves at loss and unhappy when things don’t seem to work. As such, relationships require attention, compromise, and work from all involved. However, in most cases, life is full of other important things that require our immediate attention and this can lead to relationship difficulties and ‘growing apart’.
If you feel that you value your relationship enough to give it the best opportunity to make positive changes despite of ‘feeling stuck’, here are a few ideas how therapy may be able to just do that.
Therapy enables couple to:
• take an objective look at their relationship
• express and share emotions in non-threating way
• to address dysfunctional behaviours which are detrimental to the relationship
• communicate effectively
• identify and build on what is working well within the relationship
