About Graham Shavick
Relationship issues can cover difficulties in relationships with children, with parents, in the workplace or with friends, but more frequently people seek counselling for difficulties in a personal intimate relationship.
Maybe you're finding there are increasing tensions in your relationship. It could be that you're arguing and fighting and there are more flare ups. Alternatively one of you is gradually withdrawing from the relationship creating more distance between you and perhaps turning off sex as well.
Resentment, irritation and frustration can build up if there is insufficient or no communication about what is wanted or needed from each other. Typical flashpoints can be about feeling misunderstood or not supported by the other, differing views on how to bring up the children, or about sex. Also each person brings their own expectations and personal history to a relationship. By this I mean we can behave in our present relationship in the same way our parents treated each other and some of these behaviours maybe detrimental to our relationship.
It's never too late to address the difficulties in your relationship and having counselling can help deal with these problems in a supportive environment.
