Couples who are frequently intimate report higher relationship satisfaction than those who aren’t. Not only does intimacy strengthen the connection between partners, it also provides peace of mind and can lead towards increased wellbeing. A healthy level of intimacy is one of the best ways to maintain a happy relationship.
There often comes a point where couples are less intimate which can lead to feeling unwanted or unappreciated. In reality, both sides usually want to connect more, but may be unsure of how to address the situation, especially if it has been some time.
On this pathway you will learn proven techniques on how to rebuild your intimacy.
It is possible that either you or your partner may find it a little uncomfortable to discuss such issues and some people may be more private than others. If one side finds the discussion easier than the other, it can result in poor communication, feelings of rejection and sometimes arguments. Cultural differences and past experiences may also add barriers.
At Remainly, we work with couples to help them discuss intimacy in a way that they are both comfortable with. Our professional understanding of relationships and people means our guidance is tailored to suit everyone and help people to approach the subject without feeling so uncomfortable or shy.
It may seem self-indulgent to discuss your own needs, however, in a relationship, emotional and physical needs are fundamental. We want to get couples to open up to one another and understand that rebuilding intimacy is not just about a physical connection, but also a deep-rooted mental bond.
By finding a way of talking about your needs and desires and discovering ways to demonstrate gratitude and affection we help couples to break away from their usual routine which, over time, may have become somewhat mechanical.
