Couples Counselling |
Disagreements with your significant other affects your life at home and at work, causing stress, anxiety, depression, and anger. Couples counselling resolves many conflicts in relationships that is caused by poor communication, misunderstanding and faulty assumptions. Partners can become hurt, angry and afraid. Married couples often keep their problems private with no outer perspective which can lead to frustration. A marriage counsellor like Claire has seen all types of relationship issues and have provided many solutions that couples were happy to discover. It is difficult to communicate clearly when one is overwhelmed with emotion or when one fears rejection. Again in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental setting, couple’s therapy takes place where each person can articulate the issues in the relationship and be given the space to listen to and understand their partner’s world view. Often times in couple’s therapy individual sessions will be scheduled as well as couples counselling sessions. Note that as a Registered Clinical Counsellor and couple’s therapist, Claire Sutton, takes a neutral position in order for each partner to be understood by the other partner. When each partner can truly understand his/herself and be open to understanding their partner’s needs and wishes then deeper communication and commitment can take place. Yet, any change in one partner will impact change in the dynamics of the relationship. When partners are both motivated to work issues through then positive change in the dynamics of the relationship happens.
Separation can be the decision reached between both partners, yet such a decision can be carried through in a humane and understanding way. Collaborative Divorce is truly a possibility.
