What does Couples Therapy look like at True North Counselling Supports?
Couples may come to therapy to enhance their relationship, or look for improving communication skills, find new and exciting ways to understand one another or simply to repair a break down in one's relationship.
If this sounds like you then you have come to the right place!
Tip #1 - Active Listening
Active Listening....This is a skill that we all think we do well. To be an active listener we have to be open to each other's ideas and opinions.
Tip #2 - Communication
If you feel gridlocked in your communication, you likely are not actually communicating effectively. Going back to active listening in Tip #1 helps to understand what our partner is trying to tell us without our own agenda getting in the way.
Tip #3 - Friendship
Do you enjoy being with your partner? Can you find things to do and enjoy time together?
“Friendship fuels the flames of romance because it offers the best protection against feeling adversarial toward your spouse.”
― John M. Gottman, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work
Tip #4 - Intimacy
Everyone has different levels of intimacies. Respect and affection are essential in relationship repairs.
Tip #5 - How Couples Counselling Can help
We provide a thorough Gottman assessment to see how to develop a strong and effective treatment plan for you and your partner.
By attending couples therapy at True North Counselling Supports you are investing in you future. People spend time investing in their physical or financial health. Couples Counselling and mental wellness are just as important and essential to building a lasting relationship.
