Problems In Your Relationship?
If you're having problems in your relationship, it can consume you. You think about it all the time, and it can be difficult to focus on anything else, affecting your work, your sleep, and your ability to enjoy anything else going on in your life.
Perhaps you go over things again and again in your head, trying to figure out how you're feeling and why, or how your partner is feeling and why they are acting a certain way. But no matter how hard you think it through, it never quite makes sense and you're left in emotional turmoil, feeling as confused as ever.
When you're feeling this way, sometimes couples counselling can be helpful, but often there are thing you need to figure out and deal with on your own. In other cases, your partner may not be willing to try couples counselling, but you feel you that need to do something to make changes in the relationship.
