Love is never enough. Dr Aaron T. Beck the father of cognitive therapy, teaches us how our well of distorted thoughts are the source of relationship problems, for example, negative thinking, disillusionment, rigid rules and expectations, and miscommunication. Our work with you and your love partner will illuminate the most common problems in your relationship.
‘Love’ how do you define it? Love is difficult to define but we all know what it feels like to love and how we make ourselves feel when our most intimate relationship is floundering.
There are different styles of loving and choosing someone to love and staying together through difficulties is rarely simple. Whether you are arguing, not talking have sexual problems, feel betrayed by infidelity, feel rejected or have simply stopped having fun – very few relationships exist conflict-free. When relationships falter our health and happiness often suffer. While for many of us our first instinct is to try and work through problems alone, it can be incredibly useful to seek outside help.
