Is Your Marriage or Relationship Stuck?

It can be really painful to realize that your relationship hasn’t turned out the way you thought it would.

Even with the best of intentions to resolve their problems, couples don’t always have the necessary skills to work things through in a satisfactory way.


Often, problems keep occurring and you end up feeling overwhelmed about what to do next to repair your relationship.


Sometimes it gets to the point where it just feels hopeless.

  • Do the same problems keep coming up over and over?

  • Are you constantly fighting but nothing seems to get resolved?

  • Do small disagreements seem to escalate and become major problems?

  • Have you and your partner given up on communicating with each other?

  • Are you worried that your marriage is heading towards a separation or divorce?

  • Do you want to break free of painful patterns of relating so that you can have a fulfilling relationship in the future?

Marriage Counselling or Relationship Counselling can help you redefine the hopes and dreams you had at the beginning of your relationship.

Counselling can reignite the feelings you once had for each other.

All relationships have their
ups and downs.

The road to an intimate, satisfying and emotionally mature relationship can be painful and bumpy. There are good times and hard times.


Couples who work through the rough times tend to develop stronger bonds that make their marriage and their relationship more satisfying.

But when couples are unable to overcome the difficult times, their relationship starts to feel stuck. Frustration and anger builds and resentments increase.  So when you are wondering how you got to this point, marriage counselling, or relationship counselling, can be beneficial at this point.

All couples experience conflict from time to time, it doesn't mean your relationship is over. Some negativity helps us recognise the positivity in our relationship, this is what nourishes us and helps us to grow. One of the predictors of a relationship’s failure is a couple’s inability to manage conflict in a healthy manner through effective communication to help you understand the issue, resolving it and making a commitment to each other to move forward.

Couples need to understand their what it is that they are fighting about. It can help to reflect after an argument.  Ask questions such as:

  • “How did we get to this point?”

  • “What was it about the way we communicated that didn’t go well?”

  • “What is the meaning of the issue between us?”

  • “What is the cause of the block between us on this problem?"

  • “What is the topic we are avoiding?”

Miscommunication can cause further unnecessary conflict, but at the same time, such a regrettable incident is an opportunity to work together and grow as a couple.
