A relationship goes through numerous phases during its life and it is natural to expect to have a few rough patches. These generally result from the influence of each individual's past experiences producing his or her approach to resolving the issue. Their differences at the time can result in conflict. However, the strength of a relationship, their commitment and understanding of each other, past life experiences and individual triggers can help the couple work through those rough patches and move ahead.
Unfortunately, in today's society, many couples don't spend the time to truly get to know each other, the events that molded the person they are in the relationship with and take time to feel the feelings associated with those events. Sadly many people enter marriage as more of an event than a new way of life. Individuals have different definitions of what it means to be married and different visions of what married life is like. The outcome of this combination is often divorce.
However, while divorce and separation may seem like the quick solution to resolving the belief that the couple is no longer compatible, we believe that love should be given a chance and that there are relationships that can be saved. Much of our daily life is filled with disposable this and that but don't let your marriage become that trivial. By seeking counseling, the people involved are agreeing to take that first step and make that last ditch effort to save their relationship.
Our approach towards couples counseling is designed to establish and enhance effective communication between the partners, establishing short term and long term goals and ultimately rebuild and grow strong the bond between them. With the help of a counselor giving a third and neutral perspective, couples can be guided through their problems but seeing it from different perspectives. They can begin to see through the eyes of their partner to understand their perspective. With this new understanding it is easier to understand that the mistakes, anger and arguments were a product of misunderstandings, overreaction caused the emotional outburst and, in turn, deepened the hole in the relationship.
Couples counseling is oriented not only towards solving the problems the couple is facing with each other and repairing the relationship. It also aids in the revival of the feeling of love and affection they have for each other. These feeling may be deeply buried in the ashes of marital war but remain the strength of the relationship and can emerge again.
