About 50% of marriages end in divorce and the figure of relationship breakup for unmarried couples is likely to be even higher. Professor John Gottman found that couples wait on average six years from the start of troubles until help is sought. That is a very long time to suffer unnecessarily when there is strong evidence for the effectiveness of therapy.
One way of the dealing with the above questions is to postpone the decision of therapy and seek specialist advice without commitment to start therapy.
In my practice, I offer a relationship-health check, called ARC, elucidating the strengths, opportunities for growth and science-based suggestions to overcome problems. The ARC includes a personal consultation to discuss the results and where you can ask me any questions.
Being in a healthy and loving relationship is not only one of the most wonderful or sought after life goals, but it has also been found to have physical and psychological health benefits.
If things are not right in your relationship and do not improve over time, don’t wait to seek help. It is common to come to therapy as a last resort. Of course, it is better to come late than never but a high price is paid for waiting. The longer the problems are present, the more difficult it is to overcome them, and to heal attachment and emotional wounds.
