Don’t wait until your relationship falls apart

“our relationship or marriage is not at breaking point; we are not at the divorce stage yet so I do not see the purpose of therapy now”

Did you know that research shows that couples wait around 6 years before going for relationship therapy? So, where you wait about 30 minutes before going to the hospital because you get a pain in your chest, or women wait 30 days to go to the doctor because they feel a lump in their chest, couples generally only wait 6 years before making the call to see someone. You can only imagine for yourself how many habits and manners have already been established that is going to be hard to break.

Many young couples tell me that “our relationship or marriage is not at breaking point; we are not at the divorce stage yet so I do not see the purpose of therapy now”. Yes, you do not have to bring up stuff that does not need to be brought up, but you certainly do not have to wait until you have gone through years of trouble and suffering before you make the decision to do the work. There are countless older couples we work with who says that they wish they could have started doing this work at the beginning of their relationship in order for them to enjoy all the adventure of love at an earlier stage so they did not first have to go through years of struggles before they contacted someone.

What I hope you hear is that there does not always have to be big trouble in your relationship before one comes for therapy and that you also do not have to wait until there is a big crisis before making such a decision.

Make the decision today and take action to book your session so that we can teach you a tool that can help you create a solid basis for your relationship, in order for you to enjoy life with your partner today rather than the alternative where we later have to first work hard to sort out the years of trouble.
