Counselling for Couples
Counselling/Therapy for Couples in Woodbrook Trinidad and Tobago
Can your Relationship really last?
Are you confused about your relationship, wondering if it’s slowly ending? Do you wish you could go back to the times when you felt loved and valued, those times when you felt that your needs and opinions really mattered? You want to do what’s best for yourself and you wonder if this is really what’s best for you.
You feel disconnected and alone. You don’t communicate the way you used to and you wonder if something is wrong with the relationship or with your partner or even with you. You seem to be stuck, having the same fight over and over again.
Constant misunderstandings weigh you down and cause you to be critical and contemptuous of one another. You’ve both become defensive and you avoid talking about the ever present conflict between you. Everything that’s happening makes you feel insecure, angry, resentful, irritable and disrespected.
Most Couples face Challenges in their Relationship at some time
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.” – Thomas Merton
Sometimes couples struggle because they expect the initial normal, healthy stage of forming a strong couples bond to last forever. The reality is that a successful relationship is made up of two individuals, each with a clearly defined sense of identity If partners don’t understand who they are and what makes each of them unique, it is difficult for them to engage in an ongoing relationship smoothly and in a way that enhances each partner.
In couples counselling, you learn to identify what might be causing disharmony in your relationship and get clear on whether the disagreements you’re having might be part of your normal development as a couple, or if they might be the result of something more fundamental but which might be correctable.
The good news is that you can get back to feeling fulfilled and satisfied in your relationship. You can learn how to communicate, manage your conflicts and make healthy decisions. You can be supported in discovering if you have similar goals and values and if you can agree on a vision for your future.
Couples counselling can help you revive your relationship and feel reconnected and fully alive again. It can help both partners develop new perspectives and skills to help them identify and heal from the things that would have caused distress.
