Couple Counselling Therapy

Issues Faced by Couples

When a new relationship is formed between a couple, the happiness and bliss of the relationship often seemed so smooth going in the first few months of the couple's time together.

"Honeymoon Period" - a term often used by couple to describe the first stage of relationship together, is usually filled with excitement of meeting up, and the curiousness of getting to know each other at a deeper level.

As the couple began to know each other better, each party also began to know each other strengths and weakness more and more. Usually, couples hope that over time, each partner will learn to accept the other party more and more inspite of the differences. However, as months or years goes on - the relationship can become more tense, or simply goes into a period of passiveness in the relationship.

Sometimes, either/both parties may choose to "ignore" the weakness of the other party and hope some changes may takes place down the road. At other occasions, the couple may decide to split, as they find it hard to continue in a deep commitment. In certain circumstances, couples are also wondering whether to move into marriage even though they are facing alot of problems in their current relationship with one another.

It is also possible that both parties find that they love each other deeply, but just do not know how to move on in the relationship constructively. In cases like this, it would be beneficial to seek professional counselling to revisit and understand why circumstances have developed to the present state over the period of the relationship.

When adequate understanding, awareness and insight is gained, couple can regain the new found knowledge to move forward their goals in their lives.
