Couples seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Relationships can be challenging and every couple's issues are experienced differently. Some of the most common reasons for attending couples therapy include a lack of communication, frequent or constant arguments, unfulfilled emotional needs, infidelity, financial concerns and conflicts around children.
Couples often seek help not because their problems are different from those of other couples, but because they are unable to resolve them themselves. Sometimes, this is because of a build-up of frustration and disappointment over time, sometimes because there is some other issue or meaning underlying the conflict.
