Your couple’s counselor will work to establish a comfortable, relaxed environment that will help the counselor and clients work together.
Each couple has unique needs; however some of the most common goals in the therapeutic process consist of improving communication skills, re-establishing emotional intimacy, and finding a process clients can use to resolve difficult issues.
Aside from the obvious differences, couple’s counseling focuses on the relationship of the couple, rather than the individual person.
The most important factor that will determine whether a relationship will improve is the commitment and attitude of each individual partner. The counselor will provide the couple with important techniques that if used and applied, will positively improve the interaction of the couple.
Many people have ambivalent feelings about their relationship because of past emotional pain they have experienced with their partner. Sometimes, with the help of the counselor and a willingness to work, these negative feelings can make your relationship stronger or help transition to a healthy post marriage relationship.
