Just For Couples
Many couples feel like things just aren't working out, and one or both partners may even consider giving up....
I have been working with couples for over 20 years (6+ professionally), and I can tell you without a doubt that I have answers to help you. I challenge you to give couple's counseling 6-10 weeks. Then after the initial few weeks are completed and you and your partner are seeing good, positive changes, I will suggest you both come in for 'check-ups' at 6 months and then again in 2 years (couples especially appreciate the 'check-ups' because it leaves no room for going back to the same old, stuck ways! It's great accountability.)
Most couple's find that the greatest struggles at the "root" are quite common. Common complaints are lack of: affection, deep and honest conversation, admiration, recreational companionship, domestic support, financial issues, lack of satisfying sex, etc., and common annoyances for example, are no time for each other, angry outbursts, selfish demands, annoying habits, dishonesty, etc.
My approach to couple's counseling is pro-active. In the beginning, I will have you fill out detailed questionnaires that evaluate each individual partner's greatest and most valued NEEDS, as well as each individual partner's greatest ANNOYANCES. Once we've identified the greatest NEEDS and ANNOYANCES, we can begin the journey of repairing the relationship! And, by the end of the 6-10 weeks, most spouses/partners say that they feel VALUED and UNDERSTOOD by their significant other more than ever before and their relationship is more deeply satisfying!
Recent statistics report that with each new re-marriage the percentage for success drops significantly. Based on the statistics, if you are able to work out the marriage/partnership that you are currently in, rather than moving on through divorce is much more beneficial and also easier on the family in general. My husband and I have been married over 20 years and it has not always been as satisfying as it currently is, however it hasn't just happened that we have a great marriage-- we have worked on our marriage through counseling, meeting with other couples, and we are so glad at this point in our lives to feel we can work through just about anything. Marriage and partnership can work with prioritization!
Sometimes, though, especially in cases of abuse, marriages/partnerships need to end. If you feel you're being abused, please seek help!
