Is it time to consider couples therapy?
Do you notice that, despite you and your partners' best efforts, you continue to feel more distant, lonely, or unseen by your partner?
Has conflict resulted in power struggles where tempers flare and ability to repair has become difficult?
Has intimacy started to be less fulfilling and connecting?
Have you noticed you both are less and less able to repair when communication and events go wrong?
Do you want to get back to having that wonderful positive experience that you had when you were first married or started dating?
If you have never really had that wonderful positive experience, do you think it’s time that you finally learn the techniques that master marriage practices on a regular basis?
If you are answering “Yes” to enough of these questions, it’s time to explore interventions that are scientifically proven to create the success you’re looking for.
There are many factors that go into why couples struggle in relationships.
When you fail to bond in a meaningful way, particularly with your main loved one, it can be especially lonely, traumatic, stressful, and emotionally draining.
It is possible that you, or your partner may have never really learned how to have a loving relationship or express feelings and emotions from your own childhood.
These negative experiences may be keeping you from feeling seen, soothed, safe, and secure in our relationship.
The remedy may be easier than you think!
