Couples, Relationships, Marriage, Marital Counselling – however you refer to it if you are unhappy or struggling as a couple, couples counselling can help by aiding communication with each other and providing a safe, non-judgemental environment in which you can both discuss what you feel is affecting your relationship or holding it back.
Many couples find this form of therapy beneficial mainly because it is quite different from individual therapy. Although you might discuss personal issues, if they crop up or are relevant, mostly yourselves and the therapist concentrate on how you relate to one another, the building blocks of your relationship, and how you can all work together to improve empathy and communication. The therapists at Chelmsford Therapy Rooms that offer this type of counselling can help you both assess the situation from many different angles. This in turn can assist you to see what change may be needed so you can both improve how you relate to each other and to your relationship.
Every therapist has their own style and their own approach to therapy. Common techniques include using exercises to help the couple remember how their romance started, what they liked about each other, places that may be special to them or hold special memories to them both. Some counsellors will simply allow both parties to have their say in the therapy room – a common symptom that crops up is one or both parties not feeling heard. The therapist can allow each party to “have their say” in a calm and constructive manner.
