    Hi, welcome

    That's really good you went to a GP and began the process of repair.

    In between professional visits like GP's, therapy or counseling is periods of time that you are left without help. There can be help from friends or in the case of mental illness or relationship issues - forums like this one.

    So self help can be something you and your partner can work on proactively.

    Here is an idea that might help
