Relationship troubles? Wondering if anything or anyone could help? You may be feeling alone, and doubtful - full of worry, guilt or shame at being here. But hearing more anger or blame as you withdraw emotionally only prolongs the problem & often makes things worse. It's lonely being in a relationship where the other person no longer feels 'present'. Ignoring the problems doesn't work, rather it pushes them underground where they fester. At this point you may be feeling raw, stressed, isolated, fearful or disillusioned. Tears & frustration one minute, anger the next. If rekindling love and connection is important to you, let's talk.

Struggling to figure out what to do; how to be happy; why you cannot move on from relationships or what changes you should make to switch jobs. Wondering why you don't feel good about yourself. Anxiously going over past events. Exhausted by simple day to day life. Lacking motivation. Fearful of the future. It is possible to live without these feelings, to feel good instead of just 'managing'. These are things can be helped by talking to someone who does not know you; your family or your friends. Someone who can listen without judgement and help you sort out feelings of being lost or stuck, or just plain not happy.
