How can therapy help
Therapy can help couples to explore issues in the relationship in a safe neutral place where both individuals can be heard. Couples tend to enter into therapy when they feel they have reached a crisis point in their relationship.
Therapy can help couples explore and make sense of the issues they are facing. The process can help couples to reconnect with each other in a more positive way.
Therapy can help a couple learn a lot about each other and themselves and how they interact within the relationship. Engaging in the therapy process can help identity unhelpful thinking and behaviour patterns that could be affecting the relationship and explore new ways of thinking and behaving around each other. This knowledge can bring about change and improve mental health and wellbeing.
Some reasons why couples may enter into therapy:
Trust / infidelity issues
A loss of emotional disconnect from your partner
Escalation of arguments that are becoming more frequent
Loss of physical intimacy
Life events such as bereavement or job loss
Counsellors offer a place where couples can talk about their issues in the hope of overcoming them or making the decision to go their separate ways.
Sessions would be tailored to bring awareness around how couples communicate and how they interact with each other. To explore thinking styles and behaviour and look at new ways to resolve conflicts. Homework will be set in-between sessions as part of the treatment plan.
