The benefits of Couples Therapy?
During couple therapy, my job is to encourage couples to envisage new possibilities in their relationship using self-awareness tools. Couple therapy focusses on seeing the difficulties which the couple is currently encountering. However, an essential part is to recognise the positive qualities of the relationship offer. You will improve communication and listening skills and, above all, you will learn to put yourself in the “skin” of the other person in order to understand their vision, their reasoning and their emotions. The goal is to
- Learn techniques to improve your communication and listening skills.
- Identify and reinforce the healthy parts of your relationship.
- Learn procedures for resolving conflicts.
- Work on self-awareness to be more aware of your relationship.
- Learn and understand how to become more empathetic.
- Become aware of each partner’s fear-based insecurities and how they affect your relationship.
- Recognise your anger and criticism in order to give it a constructive outlet.
