When is it time to see a couples counsellor

Romantic relationships can be a crucial component in our life, but they warrant investment and dedication. Both partners must be able to communicate. Even in the strongest relationships may reach a point where partners struggle to maintain their connection and intimacy. This is where a couples counsellor comes in.

A couples counsellor is a trained professional who specializes in helping couples resolve issues and conflicts in their relationships. They provide a safe and supportive environment where both partners can express their feelings and work towards finding solutions to their problems. At Chroma Counselling, we offer standard and extended couples counselling appointments. Seeking therapy together can bolster and strengthen any couples’ relationship.

“It is important to remember that seeking the help of a couples counsellor does not mean that your relationship is doomed.”

1. When communication between partners becomes strained or breaks down entirely, it can be challenging to resolve issues which only leads to further resentment and frustration.

2. Trust is a vital component of any relationship. If one or both partners feel betrayed, it can be challenging to rebuild that trust without the help of a professional.

3. When intimacy becomes an issue, it can be a sign that there are underlying problems in the relationship. Physical and emotional intimacy is not only important in a relationship but beneficial to individual mental health.

4. Major life transitions, such as the birth of a child, a job loss, or a move, can put a significant strain on a relationship. These outside forces can be monumental in their impact on our relationships while also being beyond our control which can compound their effects. On the other hand, if you feel like you and your partner are stagnant and unable to move forward, it may be time to seek the help of a couples counsellor.

It is important to remember that seeking the help of a couples counsellor does not mean that your relationship is doomed. Rather, it means that you are willing to put in the effort to make your relationship work and that you value your partner enough to seek outside help. By seeking help early on, you can prevent small issues from turning into major problems that are much harder to resolve.

If you feel like your relationship is struggling, do not hesitate to seek the help of a couples counsellor. We can provide you with the tools and support you need to build a stronger, healthier relationship with your partner. We can help you identify the underlying issues and work towards creating a more fulfilling relationship because a happy and fulfilling relationship deserves and requires investment.
