Will this be the year you sort out your relationship problems?

Relationship problems are always the most prevalent issue I see at the start of a new year. Two weeks together with all the stress and strain of Christmas are the perfect way to turn up the volume on existing problems. The trouble is that people realise their relationship is struggling but end up doing more of what they have tried before. Doing more of the same thing only serves to send them round the same old loop of relationship disaster that they have been on for some time. The video tells you how to spot if your relationship is starting to break down;

Relationship problems mean working with three people simultaneously; two individuals and the third person which is the relationship. Its always more effective to work with both people in a relationship as undergoing any type of therapeutic work means change (or I’m not doing my job). Both people need to change rather than work with one whilst the others stays stuck in the same old habits. Be prepared for some tough questions about yourself and your behaviour, mending a broken relationship is never easy. It doesn’t matter at what point the relationship is at, if both are prepared to put the work in, you can make the relationship better than ever before.

I see most people after their relationship has been thrown into crisis, usually after an affair. An affair means that the relationship has broken down and that one or both had disengaged emotionally from the relationship. Think about your relationship, have you disengaged emotionally? It’s always easier to fix a relationship before an affair happens. Not sure where your relationship is up to, but just know that it’s not making you happy? Have a read of some on the articles on the website http://thecoupleconnection.net/ and see if anything resonates with you. I wouldn’t recommend paying for any of their courses because they won’t help you get to the bottom of your specific problem, you need to talk to a professional to do that. Relate also have a good website full of information and you can of course book a consultation in your area with them http://www.relate.org.uk/ . The biggest problem with Relate is that you don’t get to choose who you work with and there can be a huge mismatch between yourselves and the person you are assigned to. As with any type of therapy, you have to feel really comfortable with who you choose to work with, and confident that they will be able to help.

Don’t just take my word for it...

Dare to dream big and Wendy’s THE person to help get you there.

The most exciting thing in the world is getting a chance to tear it all up and start again. Keep all the things you want and throw out everything you don’t.

It’s great to have a leading psychologist such as Wendy in the Manchester area, outside of her Harley Street practice. After publicly raising awareness of mental health issues and myself recovering from depression, I know how immensely life-changing expert intervention can be.

Jason Jarrett

Retired ex-professional football who played for Bury, Wigan, Stoke, Preston, Norwich, Leicester and Brighton during a 14 year career. After leaving professional football, Jason battled depression and recovered with the help of therapy and family support.

Wendy is great at what she does; she made me feel at ease immediately and really helped me work through some issues.

Tara Costello

It’s funny but from the minute I met her I felt so relaxed and she was so easy to talk to. Thank you!

Stevie Brown

Wendy isn’t only really good at what she does, she’s also really easy to talk to.

Gabriel Wilson

I want to thank you Wendy from the bottom of my heart for guiding me through what must have been the most difficult time of my life.

Raza Syed

I was told she was the best and they were right.

Although I consider myself a confident person, I was really nervous when I met Wendy for the first time. I had only emailed her before so it was really nerve wracking walking up the stairs to her office. I can honestly say it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Wendy is really normal, no in fact she isn’t normal as she is unfailingly bright and smiley even when she has to listen to me moan on about how awful my life was. It feels like having a chat with somebody who just gets you and you can trust with things you have never trusted anybody else with before. The magic bit comes when things you have talked about just pop up into your head and you start to do things differently. Wendy once joked about not having a magic wand, but I think she has.

Paul Hendry

I came to Wendy with a set of problems I have never been able to fully explain to anyone, which included grief, many family issues and alcohol problems. Wendy truly has an active listening style and absorbs everything you are saying, whilst not making you feel analysed, it is an incredible skill. She astounded me at how she got to the crux of the issues so fast. So much so that we both agreed I only needed one session with her, obviously this may not be the case with everyone but I would confidently recommend her to anyone, regardless of your problems. There was no awkwardness or even clock watching, she is wonderful at what she does, take the plunge and make an appointment, you will not regret it. Life is a direction not a destination and she will get you on the path again.
