Relationships-who needs em?

April 29, 2013

Well, apparently we do! And not just crappy, unsafe ones but fuzzy and warm ones! A recent 75 year study out of Harvard University found a very strong correlation between the warmth of your relationships and your health and hapinesss in old age! So why aren’t more couples coming to counselling early on in their struggles to fix them and make them better? Did you know that research shows that couples come in for counselling on average 7 years too late??? That’s 7 years of pent up and built up anger, resentment and bitterness, which is more difficult for a therapist to effectively treat. Its like waiting until a tooth has decayed for years before going to a dentist? Think the dentist can save it? So, if you are having marital troubles, don’t walk, run to therapy, and not just any therapy, but a qualified and experienced couples counsellor who can help mend your relationship and make it that “safe place to fall”. Your life might just depend on it! Happy coupling!!!
