Intimacy is not just about sex, it's also about the closeness a couple share in a romantic relationship that is different to other relationships.
You may have reached a stage in your relationship where you love your partner, but life together has just become predictable, stale and boring so the intimacy has diminished or completely disappeared. This can leave either one or both of you feeling upset, hurt and rejected which leads to becoming a difficult and embarrassing subject to broach.
This does of course happen to most couples at some point in their relationship and it doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t love each other anymore, but life has taken over. The passion you may have once felt has gone and with intimacy on the decline, feelings of resentment can start to build.
This usually happens gradually over a period of time where perhaps over-familiarity has set in. Sometimes it begins after you have children and your priorities change. Sometimes it's a lack of communication or too many arguments. Sometimes it's a lack of physical attraction or money problems or needs not being met. Perhaps selfish behaviours may play a role or one or both of you just don't feel appreciated any more.

Having Sian help us talk through our problems helped us both see each others point of view and see things more clearly. Our marriage is much stronger now that it has been for years – thank you so much.
Byron & Claire
We knew we needed to separate but wanted to do so amicably for the sake of our two children. Sian made this possible by offering us the support through a very difficult time.
Thank you Sian for putting our marriage back on track!
Mr & Mrs Donahue
When my wife suggested that we should see a relationship counsellor but I thought it was a stupid idea and was very sceptical and cynical!. However, Sian made us both feel very relaxed from the outset and she never took sides in any of our conversations. Unfortunately we were not able to save our relationship but Sian helped us through the difficult process and made the separation so such much easier. I would recommend her to anyone who is having problems
Although my partner was reluctant to go for counselling Sian put us both at ease straight away. I was surprised how he opened up and I was able to see things from his perspective for the first time. I know that he understands me more now and with Sian’s help we are closer than ever.
Hayley and John
I didn’t think there was any hope for our relationship as all we did was argue and shout at each other. Sian was so patient and understanding and always saw things from both points of view. We are now at a stage where we can at least communicate without getting angry. We are still working on our relationship but now feel at least there is light at the end of the tunnel.
