Midlife Can Present Challenges for Couples
It is be heartbreaking to hear the difficulties some couples have when dealing with midlife and/or menopausal issues.
Women who are experiencing the symptoms of perimenopause can feel unseen, misunderstood and frankly quite miserable.
Men wonder where the wives/girlfriends/
partners they used to know have disappeared to and they can feel disconnected, confused and judgmental.
Women in same-sex relationships can run into the same challenges. Their relationship issues can be further challenged if both members of the couple are experiencing perimenopause at the same time.
It can really help a couple to get an outside perspective on why they are each feeling the way that they do. Learning some solutions that can help move through what can be a relationship nightmare can often save the relationship.

Please note that couples coaching is designed to be short-term. I may recommend couple's counseling if it seems that you, as a couple, would benefit that format more than or in addition to a coaching format. Feel free to contact me about that distinction.
