Many couples struggle with communicating effectively and feeling that they are heard by their partners, as well as differences in expectations or belief systems.
Strain can also be placed on a relationship when stressful circumstances affect the couple as a whole, such as mental health issues, chronic illness, or adjustments to life events (marriage, new baby, or parenting).
Treatment is designed to be present-focused that first looks at a couple’s past experiences for ways to improve their interpersonal exchanges. Couples learn how to identify common, but ineffective, negative thinking which often leads to misunderstandings in the relationship. Couples also learn how to develop improved communication skills which ultimately leads to improved understanding of one another and greater intimacy.
