Do you need relationship advice for couples? Are you wanting to find out how to:
Move from conflict and arguments to feeling connected and able to resolve things?
Stop being stuck or going round in circles, to being able to move forwards?
Rediscover the love you seem to have lost?
Stop feeling trapped or lost and be more yourselves within the relationship?
Or separate and move on?
Then you’ve come to the right place.
It won’t be easy, or instant, but after probably investing a great deal in your relationship, it’s worth daring to find out, isn’t it? Here are a few of the reasons couples come to me as a relationship coach:
We’re terrified – “We’re terrified our relationship is over”
Would you like to come and find out where it’s going? It’s normal to hit a stage in a relationship where we feel it might be over, however it can just be that we don’t know how to move onto the next stage, rather than the end of the relationship itself. It’s worth finding out which, as it’s already painful and tiring here.
We argue – “We argue all the time and it’s hurting the children”
Give your family a chance by exploring your conflict and see if you can learn to resolve things and reconnect.
We’re stuck – “We’re stuck in the same old pattern – it’s exhausting and not good for either of us”
Why not choose to come and find out what is happening in your relationship and dare to explore what change might mean.
We’re separated – “We are separated, but don’t seem to be able to let go and move on”
Come and explore what you are holding onto and what stops you letting go. Understanding how we ended up so far from our vision of a relationship helps us move on.
After an affair – “There’s been an affair…we have no idea if it’s possible to recover or what to do now” Come and make sense of what has happened and see what that means for your relationship. Sometimes we can need a third party and a safe environment to have difficult conversations.
Step-family challenges – “Step-family life is so hard – our relationship is at breaking point”
Come and talk openly about the challenges of step-family life and your relationship in the midst of it. Explore what might help you positively manage as a couple and how you might find the way through.
Is there any hope for our relationship?
It’s normal to struggle in relationship and reach points where we can’t see the way forwards. Understandably, we tend to feel anxious that the whole relationship is over, when it may just be the end of a relationship phase. If couples can be honest together about what is ending, then it is possible to explore what new phase might be beginning. This can lead to deeper intimacy and connection at a point where we might least expect it, and a healthier, sustainable relationship.
