I’m often asked questions about ending relationships so know that it’s something we all (quite rightly) struggle with. I’m now going to trot out the phrase I give in response to any request for direct advice which is; I obviously can’t make any decisions for you, but can help you find your own answers. The guidelines are really simple and consist of 3 questions to ask yourself;
1. Is the relationship adding to my life?
2. Is the relationship not adding anything but also not detracting from my life either?
3. Is the relationship detracting from my life?
If you answered number 1 then it sounds like your relationship is going really well. Answering number 2 sounds like you could be taking each other for granted and things need a little work? Answer 3 sounds like the relationship is in trouble and needs some serious work.
There are few problems in a relationship between compatible people that can’t be overcome but things usually needs a little external guidance. Trying to work on serious problems without professional help can often intensify the relationship difficulties as you end up repeating the same patterns, just more forcibly when you feel like you’re not being ‘heard!’.

It’s great to have a leading psychotherapist such as Wendy in the Cheshire area, outside of her Harley Street practice. After publicly raising awareness of mental health issues and myself recovering from depression, I know how immensely life-changing expert intervention can be.
