Offering psychotherapy in London, I observe the processes of decay, loss, or grieving almost every day. Accompanying clients through the after-loss pain has taught me that grief doesn’t happen in a vacuum. This is the price we pay for love. Loss, destruction, decay, or degradation are universal processes. They destroy the status quo and entirely change the life we’ve known so far.
Couples counselling can salvage a struggling relationship. A crisis in your marriage may be an opportunity for development, but co-understanding is a prerequisite for exploiting its potential. When roles in a relationship have already been predetermined, and any attempt to go beyond a certain frame leads to nothing but conflicts, the relationship probably needs to be reconstructed.
Therapy enhances self-confidence and self-acceptance, which is essential to deal with feelings of shame. Experiences of discrimination and stigma underlies the pain of loneliness and leads to stress, anxiety, and depression. There is an increasing demand to cope with emotional problems as well as quick and easy access to professional help is much needed.
A healthy sexual life is essential for emotional and psychical well-being, and in my practice of couple therapy and sex counselling, I have seen a growing number of people whose sex lives are going poorly because of their lifestyles impacted by the pressure of living in a big city. Living in places like London can be challenging, and many couples are trying to juggle work, family, and social engagements while failing to maintain a meaningful relationship with each other.
