Relationship difficulties are a common problem that many people face. Whilst conflict in relationships is inevitable, if it is not handled appropriately or there is a breakdown in communication, conflict can escalate to a relationship crisis.
Couples often feel that they face the same conflicts over and over, without resolution. This can put stress not only on the relationship itself, but on each individual member of the dynamic. It can also result in the development of emotional difficulties such as depression or anxiety, or affect physical health and/or productivity at work.
When people are experiencing relationship conflict, they can often feel overwhelmed and find it difficult to see a way forward. People can get stuck in problematic communication cycles and relationship patterns which can be destructive or unhelpful.
Some of the issues couples seek therapy for include:
- Communication difficulties
- Infidelity and betrayal
- Trust issues
- Anger management
- Unresolved conflict
- Sexual difficulties
- Financial difficulties
Commonly, a breakdown in relationships comes from a lack of communication, understanding and deterioration of personal boundaries and mutual respect.
