Couples Therapy and Marriage Counselling look at the dynamics between you and your partner and highlights areas that will improve the way in which you relate to each other. Throughout the process, issues which impact negatively on a relationship are addressed. Couples Therapy gives couples a platform to heal and move forward together.
What is the focus?
– Mutual needs
– Life goals
– Mutual understanding
_ Conflict management
Communication skills are high on the agenda when working with couples. A lack of communication usually stems from assumption and disagreements. If partners do not learn how to communicate with one another, often disconnection and distance will arise. This will eventually cause conflict, unhappiness or loneliness between couples.
In many relationships, this therapy process is often the last resort in attempting to resurrect what once was.
