You never expected to be here. No one does. You started your relationship with love, desire and hope. At some stage most relationships need extra support. It’s a sign of strength and commitment to get the right help so you can move past ‘bumps’ you’re experiencing.

If you’re seeing yourself:

  • Bottling things up and feeling stress invading your body and home life
  • Second-guessing what your partner’s thinking instead of enjoying open and straightforward conversations
  • Compartmentalising your feelings so you’re barricaded behind a wall to protect yourself
  • Holding back from real intimacy for fear of being let down
  • Comparing your relationship to others …

Then you’re in the right place.

At the moment you may feel you have no more to give. You may feel flat. Or as if you're carrying a burden you can't put down - especially if there’s been infidelity or substance abuse in the relationship.

Emotions can feel out of control - tears one minute, anger the next. Emotions are complex and rarely respond to ‘logic’ when your relationship is under threat.

Worse still is watching friends enjoy happiness, fulfillment and connection as you sit on the side lines feeling envious, regretful or even judging yourself as ‘not good enough’.

It doesn't have to be this way.

Your relationship is an investment, you've poured your heart and soul into it, so exploring how you could have a relationship that rekindles the love you originally had will be time well spent.

You may want to explore options without your partner initially, or you may choose to work on your relationship together. Either way you’ll receive a safe and supportive environment that respects your privacy.
