A loving, passionate relationship is one of the greatest joys in life, and it’s also one of the hardest things to create and maintain.
Relationships can bring tremendous happiness and fulfillment, as well as pain, frustration, and confusion.
Psychotherapy can help with a variety of relationship problems, such as:
- Loss of a Relationship – Losing a relationship can be incredible painful and bring up feelings of being alone, abandoned, and unlovable.
- Hopelessness – You may be fearing that you’ll never be able to find someone to be with.
- Shyness and Fear of Rejection – Reaching out to people, putting yourself out there, and facing rejection can be scary and uncomfortable. You might be avoiding this and just waiting for someone to find you. Or you may have a secret crush on someone but be too afraid to tell them.
- Dating Difficulties – While the “single life” is often idealized in movies, it can be lonely and challenging. Meeting new people, navigating new relationships and developing intimacy can all stir up confusion, self-doubt, and other challenging feelings.
- Fear of Intimacy – We all want intimacy, but often find that too much can be scary. You may be distancing or pulling away from the very thing you so badly wanted when you were single.
- After the Honeymoon – After the initial honeymoon phase wears off, the relationship can become more challenging. Positive feelings can be replaced with boredom, frustration, or disappointment.
- Arguments and Criticism – You may find that you and your partner repeatedly get into arguments or fights that involve saying or doing hurtful things that you regret later. Your communications may be quickly breaking down into an exchange of criticisms.
- Should I Stay or Should I Go? – Deciding if a relationship is right for you can be an excruciating and scary process. When you’re spending more time fighting and “processing” than having fun together, it’s important to examine your relationship.
- Repeating Patterns – You may be dating the same type of person over and over again, even if you know they’re not good for you. You may also find yourself acting the same way or getting into the same role each time you enter into a relationship.
All of these are incredibly common difficulties with relationships.
By discussing these challenges in therapy, you can learn about yourself and your partner and gain the skills you need to create the relationship you desire and deserve.
It’s possible for you to meet attractive people, enjoy dating, and create a passionate, lasting, and deeply fulfilling relationship.
