Relationship Counselling Services

Karin Blak offers the following Relationship Counselling Services:

What can sex therapy treat: The list below contains the medical definitions of sexual issues. If you find that your difficulty is not listed, such as low libido or finding physical intimacy difficult, it is always best to email or call me to find out if I can help.

Connecting On A Daily Basis Can Be Fun: It doesn’t have to be onerous or take great organisation to connect in with your partner, in fact the harder it becomes the less likely you are to repeat it.

Power and powerlessness - the struggles in relationships: Michael Formica takes a different view on sadomasochism and applies it to everyday relationships. He compares the struggles between power and control and the shifting of the roles we play in relationships. An interesting take on a subject we usually associate with sexual deviance.

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.

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.

Stop Arguing And Start Talking: If you find yourselves bickering and arguing without being able to stop, these steps will help you both to take a step back and develop a different strategy. These steps need to be worked on by both of you, it will not work if only one of you are aware of the process or recognise the need for change.

Is Your Relationship Vulnerable?: Susan Heitler's wise words on sexless relationships.

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.

Relationship Listening Skills: There are times when we tend to not hear what exactly our partner is saying. It isn’t because we necessarily want to misunderstand, but probably more to do with our thoughts being somewhere else and so we are distracted from the situation or we want to fix. We also tend not to hear our partner if we have got into an argument.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Sex Education in Schools: The importance of sex education in schools: does the system provide what is needed?
