Intimacy & Relationship Issues
Are you even listening to me?
Great sex is nurtured by strong communication, trust, respect, and acceptance. Because intimacy is often perceived as a taboo topic for couples to explore, many couples settle for sex lives that are less than satisfactory. Some signs that sex is negatively impacting a relationship may include:
Disappointment in oneself or the relationship
An overall sense of disconnection between partners
One or both partners feeling unwanted, rejected, or neglected
Partners feeling that sex is boring, repetitive, or burdensome
People seek counseling around issues of intimacy if they are seeking a change in their private lives; therapy can take place with either one or both partners involved. Sex is often considered to be the pulse of a romantic relationship. If you are seeking to forge a deeper bond with your partner, or just feel more comfortable in your own skin, counseling may provide the path you are looking for.
