Who is couples counselling for?
As adults, however, everyone has already formed their own set of beliefs and way of life. How much one should give in is a hard gauge. At the same time, people will change over time given different experiences in life. Having to adapt to each other’s changes can be a tough one as well.
Couples counselling allows couples to:
In essence, the counsellor will act as a mediator that helps couple who have drifted apart to talk about their relationship problems openly and actively search for ways to resolve these issues.
On their own, some couples may find it hard to communicate honestly and not hurt each other’s feelings at the same time. The presence of a counsellor acts as a clear-headed third party that stops the session from turning into an argument and keeps the communication going.
It is also important to note that it is plausible for only one person to start seeking counselling first. This can happen especially when the other half is still uncomfortable about couples counselling. Rather than just giving up on the idea of seeking external professional help, you can choose to book sessions with counsellors as an individual first.
