Couples Counselling may very well be the best thing a couple can do for themselves
At HeadWay, we believe that the intimate relationship is too often neglected and left to deteriorate over time. Many couples have unrealistic expectations that the relationship can somehow thrive even when neglected because “love” will protect it. It’s easy to forget that the relationship is the protector of love, not the other way around.
How does it work?
Couples counselling begins with an intake interview to collect basic information about the relationship and the partners, to develop a rapport with the therapist, create goals and to allow the therapist to observe how the partners relate to one another. With the therapist, the couple will study itself to discover stressors in the relationship, the nature of conflicts, behavioural and communication patterns, strengths and weaknesses and qualities that may be missing in the relationship. Couples will learn new ways of communicating and learn the importance of both participating to make changes. The therapy process includes ongoing learning to understand the desires, thoughts and feelings of each other while validating and empathizing with each other. Couples are also encouraged to express positive feelings which strengthen trust and support healthier relationships. Most important, is the couple’s willingness to attend sessions, to be honest, and act on guidance. For more information on Couples Counselling read What is Couples Counselling?
