Unwrap your partner’s mind this Valentines, rather than a novelty gift

Published in Blog by Bridget Wilkins on February 6th 2024

Many of us have mixed feelings about Valentines Day. For some it is simply an opportunity for restaurants and florists to ‘cash in’ during the winter lull. For others it is a welcome chance to express our feelings – albeit things we leave unsaid for the rest of the year. Neither approach really benefits our partnership in the long term.

Our closest relationships are essential to our mental and physical wellbeing. They are the mainstay of our lives, and yet we often neglect to look after them or bother to keep them in decent shape. Many of us live side by side with another person who is full of mystery and feelings that we know little about, unless we choose to really look.

Relationship Therapy helps couples to be curious: to rediscover one another under the safe guidance of a trained practitioner.

Relationship Therapy helps couples to be curious: to rediscover one another under the safe guidance of a trained practitioner. It is not just there for moments of crisis (though Tavistock Relationships can help with these too). You may both feel stuck in the same row, or a bit lonely despite being together. You may need help to grieve a recent life transition or to eek out resentments that have built up over time.

Rather like a spring garden, our relationships need attention, time and occasionally a little weeding.

Rather like a spring garden, our relationships need attention, time and occasionally a little weeding. Only then does it become a nourishing and reviving resource. Tavistock Relationships has been exploring and assisting with ‘love lives’ for over 75-years. All our therapists benefit from this longevity and experience. In turn we offer this to all our clients. Let us help you open up your relationship’s full potential this month, rather than just another card.
