Couples Counselling is about the relationship between two people. How was the relationship in the beginning and how the relationship has evolved over time.
Any relationship between two people is co-created, it is not the responsibility of one partner to maintain the relationship it has to be maintained by both.
Together we would look at what might be contributing to the breakdown of your relationship. Common issues can include the wider family dynamics of both partners, attachment styles formed in childhood that are now effecting adulthood, affairs outside of the relationship, pressure of being parents and financial problems.
When working with Couples a common issue that has an effect on the shared relationship is how you talk to each other. Has your style of communicating over time become very negative? Do you feel heard, are you being listened to? When you are feeling insecure in your relationship does what you say and do bring your partner closer to you or push them further away? When effective communication is achieved between two people then dialogue about the issues effecting the relationship can often be heard more positively, enabling Couples to work through their problems more effectively.
Couples Counselling is not always about keeping a Couple together, sometimes it is about helping a Couple to part amicably and responsibly.
