You may be experiencing difficulties in your relationship with your partner that are proving difficult to resolve. Perhaps something has happened to change things suddenly, or built up over a long period of time. There may be problems that you know have always been there but have become more of an issue for you or your partner recently. You and your partner might feel stuck in the way things are, having tried to change things without much success. Or you might simply want to invest in your relationship for the future or to prepare for upcoming changes.
Relationship therapy can help you by providing a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space. Here, you can communicate and be heard in a way that helps you to get to the underlying issues. You can explore your differences, your feelings and the patterns that shape your relationship. Understanding how you and your partner are fitting together and affecting each other can give you the power to change the things that are not working, and start to grow again.
Common issues that bring couples to therapy include:
- Communication issues
- The birth of a child
- Preparation for marriage
- Parenting challenges
- Money issues
- Loss of the ‘spark’
- Feeling there is a lack of space
- Feeling there is too much distance
- Health issues
- Questions about commitment
…and a wide variety of other reasons unique to each couple.
Relationship therapy can be a valuable investment in your happiness and that of your family.
Sometimes individuals come for relationship therapy on their own. This may be because a partner does not want to attend, or is not able to. Or it may be that you are not currently in a relationship, but recognise that there are issues you need to think through about patterns that repeat in your relationships.
Therapy can be online or face to face in East Grinstead, and cost between £70 and £100. An initial consultation lasts 75 minutes, ongoing sessions are 50 minutes long.
