Does it feel like you and your partner just aren’t on the same page anymore? Do you feel like they just don’t hear you, or worse yet, that they just don’t care what you say or how you feel? Do you want to get your relationship back to where it used to be when you enjoyed each other’s company, instead of dreading coming home every night?
So much of the disconnect we feel with our partner stems from a lack of communication or poor communication. In therapy, you’ll learn effective listening and communication skills, such as Reflective Listening, that will allow you and your partner to hear and understand each other in different ways.
Or does it feel like you and your partner just can’t agree on anything anymore? Does it seem like all you do is fight? Or when things are going well, you know it’s just a matter of time before the other shoe drops, and everything goes sideways?
This is often because we haven’t learned any conflict resolution skills or how to fight fairly. Obviously, couples will disagree; that’s natural. It’s how you handle the disagreements that matter. In therapy, you’ll learn fair fighting rules and conflict resolution, so that you have tools in your toolbelt for when you do disagree.
