Intimacy Problems - Marriage Guidance

Relationship Counselling & Marriage Guidance Near Ashford, Kent

Has your relationship lost it’s passion and any intimacy ceased? Does you partner pull away from you perhaps and doesn’t want to cuddle let alone have sex? Do you feel confused, hurt and rejected because of it? Perhaps you are the one who doesn’t want to be intimate with your partner? Maybe you don’t feel loved or respected by your partner, so the last thing you feel like doing is being physically close?

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 and left too long it beomes a difficult or 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.
