The road to an intimate, satisfying and emotionally mature relationship can be painful and bumpy. There are good times and hard times. Couples who work through the rough times tend to develop stronger bonds that make their relationships more satisfying. But when couples are unable to overcome the difficult times, their relationship starts to feel stuck. Frustration and anger builds and resentments increase. When you are at this point in your relationship, you are probably wondering how you got here.
What happened to the hopes and dreams you had at the beginning of your relationship?
How did the feelings you once had for each other change so much?
It can be really painful to realise that your relationship hasn’t turned out the way you thought it would. Even with the best of intentions to resolve their problems, couples don’t always have the necessary skills to work things through in a satisfactory way. Often, problems keep occurring and you end up feeling overwhelmed about what to do next to repair your relationship. Sometimes it gets to the point where it just feels hopeless.
If your relationship seems stuck in a negative rut that you can’t seem to get out of, relationship or couples counselling can help.
Due to its extensive research and evidence-base, Gottman Therapy underpins all of the relationship work that I do. I have completed Level 3 Practicum Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy in Seattle at the Gottman Institute. There will be 3 assessment sessions done before therapy will commence. This definitely saves time in the long-term as we get a complete and thorough picture about what is actually going on.
