Most relationships have difficulties of some kind at some point.
Relationship therapy can be an effective way of bringing about positive change.
Perhaps your relationship has lost its shine. You still get on, but overall it feels pretty stale.
Fighting that changes nothing
Bickering and contempt are usually destructive and create a downward spiral that is hard to break.
Affairs (sexual or emotional)
The pain, loss of confidence and trust can make recovery a daunting prospect.
A lack or absence of pleasurable sex often makes it hard to feel close to a partner.
Life can throw so many obstacles at us that put a real strain on what might otherwise be a great relationship.
Relationship therapy is not about persuading you to stay together whatever the circumstances, and can be invaluable.
