Relationship IssuesOne of the most fundamental components to happiness in life is having satisfying relationships with others. Yet, we all know from experience that relationships are not easy. When difficulties arise, many are quick to give up, blame themselves, or feel hopeless or despairing. The result is often that we feel trapped in a relationship where resentment or disappointment abound, or we face the painful effects of isolation and loneliness which could lead to depression.
Relationship issues are one of the most common topics for which people seek therapy. A skilled therapist can provide the space and perspective to help you understand your self in relationships and the patterns into which you fall. In the course of therapy, you can learn how to break out of your patterns, learn what you really want and how to communicate that to others. Often, people report that they subsequently find themselves seeking healthier relationships and attracting the type of people who are truly able to care for them.
