Relationships are complex, constantly changing and evolving during life's many stages and events experienced by all couples and individuals. It’s understandable that these events may challenge the most robust of relationships. It can be difficult to communicate effectively or to resolve conflict situations especially during times of crises and change. Individuals can feel alone and misunderstood and turn away from each other by distancing, arguing and avoiding. This can lead to personal distress and impact negatively on the relationship. Relationships need ongoing attention and seeking help at an early stage can promote open communication, healthy conflict resolution and the development of closeness and intimacy.
