Does Marriage Counselling Work?
Just by booking your first appointment and agreeing to come together to Living Families for Marriage Councelling Horsham Sussex is really significant. It demonstrates to your spouse how much the relationship matters to you and can often be a huge part of the healing process in itself.
A safe place
Couple Counselling or Relationship Counselling should take place somewhere neutral to you both so that you feel are in a safe place where you can talk through your difficulties in more effectively.
When it’s just the two of you, discussions even about everyday issues can quickly escalate out of all proportion. Having a counsellor present can soften the intensity and moderate the discussion. By facilitating the conversation, both of you feel heard and the whole thing slows down and you can get to grips with the issues.
Identifying repeated patterns
Couples often come into therapy really stuck in their positions, feeling misunderstood, unheard, frustrated and angry.
By helping you become aware of repeated patterns and “going round the mountain yet again”, you can begin to reconnect and work together to solve your problems.
You probably never did any study about relationships despite the importance and commitment required. In your sessions you will study and learn more effective ways to communicate and resolve conflict. What you learn and put into practice will become part of your lifestyle.
Finally, there is always hope. It’s never too late. If both of you are serious about wanting your relationship to work and are committed to change, we have never failed to see a miracle of restoration.
