Are you in a marriage or relationship with problems that you don’t know how to fix? Have you tried repeatedly but regardless of what you do or how hard you try, nothing seems to work. If your answer is yes, you’re not alone. This may not be very comforting but it’s a fact for far too many couples. It’s also true that if you don’t find a way of turning things around that the quality of your life and relationship is likely to suffer. You might stay together for the kid’s sake, or maybe you can’t afford to leave or whatever. But, the bottom line is that life will not be what you want it to be and that’s sad.
It’s unfortunate that by the time most couples come to us for marriage or relationship counseling we represent their last step before a breakup, separation or divorce. Most have spent years in incredible emotional pain–hurt, angry, depressed, sad, confused, bewildered, stressed, loveless, sexless, hopeless, ashamed, and powerless. And while the picture may appear to be pretty bleak, in more cases than you would expect, couples really turn things around. We teach couples the essential relationship skills they need to fix their problems, stay together, keep their families intact, and live happier and more fulfilling lives.
We continue to reach out to as many couples as possible, in as many ways as possible, because we know that living in an unhappy relationship is not the way to live. Breaking up, for most couples, is not the answer either because it only creates a host of other problems. By learning some basic relationship skills–one of which is how to communicate better, it is possible to create the relationship you’ve longed for. We know. We’ve seen it time after time.
