1. You keep having the same arguments
Here we go again. You have the same arguments time after time. It starts innocently enough, but inevitably ends without resolution. You are locked in a vicious cycle – a cycle in which one of you blames and the other defends, one partner advances and the other partner retreats.
We will help you to uncover root causes – the vulnerabilities that are your real triggers. We will help you break the deadlock.
2. The silence is deafening
You are in full retreat. You may both be aware that there are serious issues in the relationship, but neither of you are admitting it. This deadly silence makes matters worse.
We will offer you encouragement and the strength to address the problems and help to resolve them.
3. Your sex life is lacking
A lack of emotional intimacy has led to physical withdrawal. She pretends she is asleep when he crawls in beside her, and she has stopped caring about the pretence. Sexual intimacy is a measure of emotional health. Its lack will indicate that intimacy is missing, or that sex has become a tool of power or revenge in a broken marriage.
4. Nasty quarrels
Your every exchange is marked by acrimony and sarcasm. You both find fault with everything. There is permanent tension. There is no give and take. Kindness has left the relationship and often sense of humour goes with it.
Needless quarrels are signs of discontent. You have lost faith in the other’s love, appreciation and commitment. We will help you to reconnect and refocus on the things that really matter in your relationship.
5. You are on the road to nowhere
It appears that nothing is really broken, but you feel you still need a fix. Your relationship has become impersonal, the love is stale.
At The Apex Practice you will found that couples therapy is a tonic: we will provide the boost that will regenerate your relationship. We will help you to rediscover the origins of your love and affection which will put the spring back into your life.
6. You have fallen and you cannot get up
Every relationship has rough patches, but when the solutions that usually work just don’t, you should get some help.
At The Apex Practice we will not only give you some fresh ideas, but we will also help you to hear each other in new ways. It’s a fact that we can all become deaf to our partners. We stop seeing and hearing our loved ones just because we have seen and heard it all before. At The Apex Practice we will help you to learn and to listen on a deeper level, and hear even the unspoken word.
