Couples Counselling

It can be lonely being in a disconnected relationship. All of us yearn to be loved and feel truly accepted, but sometimes despite our best efforts, that connection evades us.

Maybe there is a communication gap and the spark is gone, or perhaps arguing about petty things has become a normal routine in your relationship. Somehow being together is no longer a happy space and you miss the times when things seemed easy and lovely.

Admitting that things are not perfect in your relationship is a tough thing to do – it takes courage to ask for help, but could be exactly the best thing to do when you’re stuck and nothing you do seems to work.

Signs you should seek relationship counselling

Here are some common relationship issues that indicate you and your partner can benefit from seeing a couples-counselling psychologist.

  • Frequent fights and conflicts over petty issues

  • Lack of physical and emotional intimacy

  • Lack of meaningful communication and drifting apart

  • Contrasting opinions on parenting

  • External influences, such as career or in-laws interfering in your relationship

  • Infidelity, lies or deception, and broken or lack of trust

  • Needing help with adjusting as a unit in blended families.

  • If you can relate to any of these relationship problems, it is time to get counselling services offered by an experienced relationship psychologist
