and your partner are having problems. That’s normal. Every couple
goes through a few. But if you feel that the problems are getting the
best of your relationship, you might want to consider getting help
patching things up. If you think the emotional failure in your
relationship is much harder to resolve, here’s how to get help.
Stopping You from Making It Work?
you go to couples
you’ll want to ask yourself: what are you doing to make things
right? What are you doing that’s cutting off the conversation off
or leaving you both cold and emotionally distant? Those are the areas
that the therapy will likely ask you about.
You Committed to the Process?
you want things to work out? Or are you just going to the sessions
because you don’t want to deal with more fighting at home? What do
the sessions mean for you? What do you think they’ll help you
Do You Need Help With?
there something that you’ve always wanted to say to your partner
but you never found the right words? What do you want to tell your
partner about getting counseling together? Do you want your partner
to feel loved, that you’re in this together?
Off-Limits to You and Your Partner?
you go to a session, decide for yourselves what areas you won’t
want to delve into. However, holding back during the sessions might
also backfire if the areas you don’t want to talk about during
counseling are the areas you need to work on.
Can You Help Us?
That’s a question that you throw to the therapist. Ask about what the therapy will entail. Discuss your options and decide if you’re both getting therapy for the same reasons. Make sure you’re both on the same page.
