Relationship difficulties are one of the most common reasons why adults
seek assistance from a psychologist.  Spouses will often find times during
their relationship that they cannot resolve differences about how they
think or feel about important issues.  Couples may feel that they have lost
the level of intimacy that they once experienced, and are struggling to find
a way to “reconnect” to their partner.  Couples may be experiencing
external stressors that are also making their relationship more difficult to
manage.  Conflict may arise over common “hot topics,” such as finances,
ex-spouses or partners, in-laws or other extended family, parenting
approaches, alcohol or substance use, or employment issues.  

Such difficult topics, in conjunction with decreased feelings of intimacy,
high levels of stress and difficulties in achieving real communication about
such issues are often what lead couples to seek assistance from a
psychologist.  During couples counseling, couples work to develop healthy
communication skills and to create an environment in which each partner
can both “hear and be heard” from the other.  In addition to creating an
atmosphere of communication, a psychologist can bring new perspectives
into what may be contributing to the relationship problems.  Adults often
form their approach to relationships during their childhood and
adolescence, and their relationship style is often learned or heavily
influenced by their parents. Experiences during this development may
have a hidden impact on the current relationship.  Identifying and
understanding one’s approach to relationships in couples counseling can
often reveal new ways for the couple to understand each other and
restore the kind of intimacy the couple is seeking.
