Have you and your significant other grown apart? Do you seem to bicker and disagree more frequently or have trouble communicating? Perhaps you have different attitudes about money, or child rearing methods, or you want different things from your relationship?
The fact is, even the happiest, most compatible couples don’t agree about everything, but there are more effective and less effective ways to address differences. Professional couples counseling provides a safe space to share opinions and beliefs and just get some things off your chest in a nonjudgmental environment of mutual respect. The counselor serves as a sounding board, as well as an arbitrator that prevents the discussion from devolving into name-calling and loud voices while offering suggestions and insights to help each party better understand their partner’s perspective. It is important that both parties participate in the process, as couples therapy can teach communication and problem-solving skills that can serve to strengthen the relationship and keep lines of communication open for a lifetime.
The Family Psychology Place offers couples counseling in Calgary to help couples re-establish connections and restore intimacy in their relationship. Couples counseling is not only for couples who are considering ending a relationship; in fact, it offers benefits for couples at any stage of their relationship, and proactively seeking counseling before a problem arises can help prevent the problems from ever happening.
A successful relationship requires cooperation, respect, and open communications from both partners. It can be a lot of work, but for many people, the result is more than worth the effort. If you think you and your partner could benefit from couples counseling, you’re probably right. Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation.
