Problems can arise within relationships, in the same way as they can in any other aspect of our lives. The reasons can be varied and complex and sometimes hugely painful.
Common reasons can include such areas as communication, infidelity, trust, differences in expectation, relational abuse, boredom, compatibility to name just a few. Whatever the reason, when problems occur it can be hugely distressing for those concerned.
When is the right time to get help?
In general, the earlier that you can address a problem, the easier it can be to resolve. Dealing with an issue after years of bitterness and resentment has built up, can be extremely hard. Whereas making sense of it early on, can give the best possible opportunity to make sense of things. However, this is not always possible for a variety of differing reasons.
Whether you are able to recognise a concern early on, things are at an advanced state or you want help with making sense of a relationship that has ended, Therapy can be an invaluable tool in making sense of things, whilst offering you emotional support.
