Are you living with a man child? What is a man child? A man child is an individual who is immature for their age. Sometimes men who were overly nurtured as children and their parents protected them to a point where they did not get to experience disappointment and consequences due to making some mistakes. Teaching a child to think that he is always right is never to blame and does not have to handle tasks and responsibilities either at home or at school literally stunts his maturity and growth as an individual. Parents take protective measures to make sure their child … Read More

Are you a lonely wife or husband? If you are lonely in your marriage it's painful and it hurts, and you wonder how you got here.   What does it look like?

Want your partner to express emotion? When partners can’t express their emotions, it can erode the marriage. Emotions give us important information that we can use to better understand our needs, priorities, and limits. We can use emotions to set boundaries and make decisions. Without emotion in your marriage, this erodes trust, security, intimacy, and closeness, and it's very painful if you’re on the receiving end of it. If a partner is not sharing emotions like sadness, loss, or grief, the relationship doesn’t become a haven for dealing with the deeper issues that occur in marriage. I regularly work with individuals and … Read More

Attending Marriage Counselling When you have a problem in your life you work out what your doing wrong, come up with a solution and you try and fix it yourself or seek assistance.

This waiting and blaming is very destructive to yourself and your marriage. Each of you needs to take responsibility for the problems and aide in the solutions. Common relationship problems include: • Sexual issues • Different … Read More
