It may be many reasons why a couple is going through a difficult period. Whether it’s a pair of youngsters, adults, or mature, heterosexual or homosexual, some problems can disrupt the serenity of marriage, cohabitation or relation.
Couple therapist is often contacted when difficulties are perceived as unmanageable, when the conflict is on the peak, when one or both partners have reached the breaking point, or when an event considered very severe, such as deception, comes to disrupt the serenity and mutual trust.
These may be some of the valid reasons that can cause a couple to ask for outside help. But other reasons may be equally valid: weariness, feeling of imbalance in the relationship, the fear of not being up to the other, the feeling of not having enough space for themselves, difficulties in the sexual sphere, the strength of ancestor ties, difficulties with children, and a thousand other things that can make your life as a couple less serene than you expect and want.
The therapist’s work is intended to recognize the significance of the discomfort taking in count life cycle in which it manifests, the guideline of the couple’s relationship, the personal history of its members and that of their families of origin.
