All couples experience conflict. For some, it may be in the form frequent arguments, or a lack of intimacy, whereas for others there may be issues with betrayal, or even money.
Whether you’ve been married for one month or one decade, all couples can benefit from relationship counselling.
Our couples counselling in Newcastle can be used for those with a range of relationship issues, teaching couples how to communicate better in order to heal cracks in their relationship.
Here are six of the main reasons why you might need couples counselling:
Frequent Anger and Arguments
Constant arguments and anger are common reasons why couples attend relationship counselling. Although everyone argues from time to time, arguing over the smallest things on a frequent basis can lead to an unhealthy relationship which requires intervention.
A Lack of Intimacy
If your love life is lacking, it can lead to emotional distance, insecurities and even resentment. Going to couples counselling can help couples to reconnect on a sexual level, and understand why they are drawing away from one another.
Infidelity and Betrayal
Affairs are one of the most common reasons why couples seek help. Betrayal and infidelity can breach trust and take years to work through. Our relationship counselling in Newcastle can help couples to regain the trust of one another, and create a plan for healing.
Financial issues can often be uncomfortable for many couples to talk about, with imbalanced spending or saving creating serious problems in a relationship.
Couples counselling can helps people to become more aware of their spending, and develop financial empathy for one another.
Although you and your partner may be united in your love for your children, you may not necessarily be on the same page when it comes to parenting.
Couples counselling can help you to understand each others’ parenting decisions, and work constructively to make joint decisions in the best interests of your children.
Break Up or Divorce
As well as resolving your difficulties, our couples counsellors in Newcastle can also help when things don’t work out, such as during a divorce or break-up. If you need counselling to get you through your separation amicably, we can provide help and support.
