We want to feel connected, understood and accepted. Many turn to our romantic relationships for that deep level of intimacy. It can be tough to be on the rollercoaster ride of being in a relationship. It brings out the best and worst in many of us. Couples work can help each partner stretch and open up to both receive and give the love and acceptance we all want. Some couples need help communicating and others need help identifying patterns and all need the safe space to be able to take the risk to reach for that fulfilling relationship. There will be times when our partners hurt us, but knowing how to repair and connect can keep the relationship deeply satisfying.
