Relationships can be hard, but we can help.
For most couples, deciding to attend couples counselling is a big step. Couples can get trapped in an endless cycle of what feels like the same argument- over and over. And over.
There is nothing worse than being in a partnership that doesn't feel like one. Feeling lonely when your partner is in the same room as you is an empty, hollow place to be. On the outside, everything might look like its fine, but inside, you might be questioning what you're doing and if you might be better off alone.
Or, perhaps things aren't that bad. Maybe you just feel like the spark is gone. Mismatched sex drives, all the chores with kids, financial stress- at the end of the day, you used to lay there and snuggle. Now, you just want to be left alone to go to sleep.
When it’s just not going the way you want it to go, the other pressures of life can feel even heavier. Couples might find themselves struggling with financial issues, parenting concerns, infidelity, or wondering, “do I even love you anymore?” Getting started with couples therapy can help you get the clarity you need.
