How we can help
Relationship therapy can encourage you to start communicating with each other in ways that are constructive.
Couples often have different ideas about what the problem is in the relationship and don’t realize that until coming in for couples’ therapy. When you and your partner come in for counselling with us, we talk about what isn’t working and how each of you sees the problem. We also take a look at how each of you feels in the relationship.
We then find ways to work on communicating with each other, listening to each other, and understanding the value of compromises that work for both of you. In this way, couples’ therapy can help you begin to create a relationship that works.
Your therapist will support you to actually listen to each other, inviting you both to share your thoughts on & personal experiences within the relationship & encouraging you to shift the focus from that of one-upmanship & blame, to the goal of seeking to really understand each other.
Individual sessions might be offered as part of the process to help you to better understand yourself. Once the roots of the issues have been explored, strategies & homework tasks may be discussed to support your mutual understanding, & ultimately your reconnection. In this way, things start to feel much less personal & therefore less heated, & from this calmer position you can find out what the best way forward for you both is going to be.
