Do you feel like you’re not being heard by your partner? Or not appreciated?
Is there an issue surrounding a lack of faithfulness, money, being a parent, the in-laws, or work?
Or maybe you both just want to connect on a deeper level?
While we now know that the old myth that “half of all marriages end in divorce” is simply false (the US divorce rate has been falling for decades and current studies estimate it’s closer to only ⅓), it doesn’t mean marriage is getting any easier. After all, if we expand this figure to include unhappy de facto relationships and add in the ill-contented twosomes who will never divorce, we can see there are large numbers of seriously annoyed, frustrated, glum people like you who are desperate for a change.
If any of these sound like your relationship…
– You and your spouse don’t communicate honestly and with respect or you hardly communicate at all
– You, or your partner, have had a betrayal of trust
– You live like roommates rather than mates
– You feel isolated and alone
– You are together only because of your children
– You have let in-laws or other family members interfere with your relationship
– You both genuinely want to improve your relationship
…Then couples counseling can help.
It is an unfortunate fact that many couples wait until things have gotten “really bad” between them before trying to get help. Don’t wait hoping things will somehow get better.
Whether aimed at addressing small issues or dealing with potentially relationship-breaking challenges, therapy can help you each feel valued, heard, and connected.
By encouraging honest, empathetic communication and using strategies and techniques that aid hearing, healing, and clarity, couples counseling becomes an empowering process for both you and your partner.
When both partners are provided with the right tools, appropriate approaches, and healthy insights, relationship frustrations often ease or disappear. Problems become manageable, validation & openness increases, and mature communication paves the way for a calmer, happier relationship and the healthiest way forward together.
