All relationships have ups and downs. Sometimes, things can get a bit stuck and it’s hard to find a positive solution. Learning to listen, communicate and grow in your relationship takes time but if you need some extra support have a look at what counselling services are near you.
Communicating boundaries and connecting with your partner through open conversation can sometimes be tricky, even when you know each other well. Relate has lots of support for relationships no matter what stage they are at.
Give each other space to grow as individuals as well as partners. People in happy, loving relationships need alone time to work on their own goals, spend time with family and friends and doing their own hobbies.
Being active with a friend or family member is a great way to stay in touch and stay motivated. Find an activity you can spend time doing as a couple or a family. From walks to dancing lessons, there are so many ways to move your body and benefit mentally and physically.
Don't forget to take care of your sexual health, the Integrated Sexual Health Service can help you with care and advice on sexually transmitted infections and contraception in Coventry. It's important to talk about sex and relationships with your loved ones, including on making decisions on contraception.
If you are feeling unsafe in your relationship, help and support is available at Safe to Talk and for Warwickshire, Talk2Someone.
