Avoiding sex had become part of our bedtime routine. Everything else in our relationship was great. It didn’t make sense! Our therapist was so friendly and relaxed about it, they deal with that stuff all the time, we wish we’d got in touch earlier. It ended up being a great decision.
My ex husband was aggressive and jealous, it wasn’t an easy decision to leave as I knew the boys were close to him but after years of trying I felt our relationship just didn’t have any future. Although the boys lived with me, my ex and I managed to arrange days when they could stay with their dad and have their own positive relationship with him.
I used to think counselling was for crazy people, probably from seeing stuff on TV, but it’s just talking to someone. My parents were so angry with each other it felt like nobody cared about how I felt, but the counsellor was there every week to listen. Without the help that I was given then, I would not have felt equipped to handle the situation at home and to have my own successful relationships.
I found the whole process easy going, and this made it easy to talk to the professional, and also helped me to open up more as I felt I was not being judged. I am a calmer more chilled person, ready for whatever a relationship throws at me but I am also now able to identify what is bad for me and avoid getting into bad situations
