The stress of life has a way of stealing away joy, to the point where you forget why you became a couple in the first place.
During the early days of many relationships, partners relate to each other from an overall sense of warmth, acceptance, and love.
You see your partner as special, and it feels like the world is a better place. You look forward to seeing each other every day, and when you’re not together the other person is on your mind.
Many people look back at those times being silly or unrealistic. But that doesn’t need to be the case. Those times and those emotions were real and anything but silly. As a relationship begins to feel closer in counselling, the couple often remembers why they fell in love. They begin to describe their relationship in terms of a sense of warmth & acceptance.
You may be taking each other for granted, or maybe you’ve somehow fallen into a pattern of not complimenting each other. Relationship counselling can assist couples in developing effective problem- solving strategies that lead to conflict resolution, and to mobilise the strengths in the relationship.
