Counselling and Therapy for Relationship Issues

Relationship issues can vary from 'have I found the right person for me', to we are in a relationship but we fight a lot, or there is one particular thing my partner does which worries me or makes me feel we have no future.

It could be the discovery of an affair, commitment issues or pornography or uncovering a secret which reveals a new side to a person you thought you knew well. Whatever it is, there are no relationships which don't hit rocky patches from time to time. Some of the most common relationship problems include:

  • Coping in a relationship following a new baby
  • Coping after an affair
  • The children have left home and we have nothing in common
  • Becoming involved in an affair
  • Not talking and feeling lonely
  • Work and home life isn't balanced
  • A partner has alcohol or drug problems
  • Can't stop arguing
  • Coping with difficult teenagers
  • Coping with step-children and ex-partners
  • The sexual side of the relationship has faltered
  • Managing a separation or divorce
  • Trust issues in a relationship

Resolving problems in a relationship

In addition to relationship issues there are also a whole set of problems around how couples set about trying to resolve things.

One term used to describe the kind of fruitless arguments which go round and round with no resolution is 'kitchen sinking'. This refers to the tendency when a row starts for everything 'including the kitchen sink' to be thrown in. In other words – the fight starts off with something relatively trivial but degenerates into a brawl where lots of old grievances keep being brought back up.

'Kitchen sinking' is the way many couples try to resolve issues and usually doesn't work so well. Going to see a specialist with experience of the kind of things couples fight about and knows how to help improve communication and resolve matters can do a lot to improve things. No marital or couples therapist can ever really directly tell you who is right for you or whether it's time to leave a relationship or not. However, having an expert to confide in, who is able to dispense frank advice, and hasn't got the same ties to you as your friends or relatives, so therefore can be more dispassionate, is often invaluable.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.

  • Thank you for setting us (and me in particular) off down the road. I will always be grateful to you, and I do feel that you spent a lot of time on my case without much reward.
