Blog articles to inspire thought and conversation

Articles here are written by me, Karin Blak, about relattionships, it's ups and downs and inbetweens.  I hope to inspire understanding, thoughts and conversations about your intimate relationship as well as relationships in general.

Please be aware that I will NOT write about any of the cases I work with, only about the thoughts and inspirations they might bring to my mind.

Teenagers! Who'd have 'em: ​Struggling to get your beloved teenager to do their coursework, get up in the morning, do any kind of communication, tidy up after themselves, take part in family life - the list is endless - you could be wasting your energy.

Are You Struggling With Single Parenting?: ​We don’t usually plan for separation when we start a family, but statistics tells us that a quarter of families in the UK are run by single parents. Becoming a single parent through relationship breakdown is without doubt a very emotionally stressful time: communicating with your former partner about practicalities and responsibilities can easily become laden with emotions that spiral out of hand.

Is Your Relationship Lacking Spontaneity?: Do you remember what it is to be light hearted and playful with your partner? Or has every day turned into a routine of getting up, organising the children, getting to work, meeting deadlines, picking up children or food before going home to yet more routine of dinner, struggles of getting the children to bed, home responsibilities, and eventually a rushed moment where you can sit and watch the news before going to bed exhausted while knowing another day of repetition awaits you tomorrow?

Erections That Just Don't Work The Way They Used To: Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects approximately 52% of men between the age of 40 and 70. It is a staggering figure and yet it is a subject that is not openly talked about, leaving a lot of men thinking that they are alone, that it is a rare thing and that they are less of a man for experiencing ED.

When Sex Becomes Impossible: In a stable, long-term relationship physical intimacy rarely stays as exciting as it was when the relationship first started. We may at times find ourselves bored, perhaps having got into a routine.

Physical Intimacy - Dread or Pleasure?: Romance is in the air as Valentine’s Day gets closer, when many of us arrange meals, flowers and intimate occasions for our loved one. For most it is a day to look forward to in the midst of the darkness of winter. For others it might be a day to dread.

My Perfect Partner The Mind Reader: Relationship troubles are usually based in behaviour: she/he did or did not do something; said or did not say something; acted or did not act a certain way. I can’t remember a couple being in trouble because one or both felt or thought something.
