Couples can grow closer and have a loving and passionate marriage if they give it a go
(PRWEB) August 24, 2016
Dr Yuliya Richard a principal psychologist of Blue Horizon Counselling (http://www.bluehorizoncounselling.com.au), a well-known counselling practice with several Sydney offices specialising in helping couples to revive and lead happy and satisfying lives has revealed, that in her experience working with couples, using approach based on The Gottman Method has been proven to be effective in helping couples to achieve their relationship goals. According to research, in order to ensure successful and long-lasting relationship, couples need to cultivate stronger friendship, manage their conflict and to provide support for each other’s hopes and dreams.
On average, 326 hopeful couples get married every day in Australia, but unfortunately one third of those marriages will end up in divorce. Sadly, in many cases one or both partners simply cannot be bothered to save their marriage. Often people take marriage for granted and simply expect it to be easy, yet they are willing to invest in education, careers, friendships and children before their intimate relationships.
“It does not have to be difficult, but couples need to want to make their relationship work,” Dr Richard explains. “It’s unrealistic to expect that a relationship will grow stronger and more passionate if one partner fails to put the relationship first and doesn’t invest time and energy in it. Who can raise a child without talking to him/her, or get a promotion at work without making an effort, or maintain a friendship but never be there for their friend?”
The good news, according to Dr. Yuliya Richard, is that many couples can turn their relationship patterns around. “Couples can grow closer and have a loving and passionate marriage if they give it a go”. Dr. Yuliya Richard uses The Gottman Method when working with clients, a straightforward method that employs effective and practical strategies that couples can implement straight away, bringing positive results quickly (http://www.bluehorizoncounselling.com.au/services/relationship-and-couples-counselling).
Dr. Yuliya Richard adds: “People divorce for a number of different reasons. But laziness and unrealistic expectations should not be the reason to end a relationship. To beat those one-in-three odds: invest time in your relationship, respond to your partner in a positive way, continue learning about each other and experimenting with new and exciting ways of connecting, support each other and create a shared meaning”.
