— Are you unhappy in your current relationship?
— Do you fight all the time, afraid that your love is dying and your marriage is in danger?
— Perhaps you’re considering a separation because you’re losing hope that anything can change?
— Do you feel like you’re the one “doing all the work” in the relationship?
— Do you simply feel stuck or lost and don’t know how to proceed?
There is a hope, let couples counseling help you.
With the aid of science and research during the last 30-40 years, we’ve learned a lot about love, marriage and fulfilling relationships. We now know that having a successful and happy relationship is a SKILL we can learn if we are willing to “do the work.” Marriage or couples counseling can teach you how to improve your relationship skills.
I truly believe that we all have the potential to create a great relationship and to find lasting love – if we are prepared to honestly look at what blocks us and work with it. When we accept our own contribution to the problems in a relationship and are ready to make an effort to learn new ways of relating and being together, our relationship can thrive.
Don’t let your relationship problems ruin the quality of your love life. You had such high hopes for it, so don’t let those hopes die.
