Why do couples go to couple therapy? Here are a few reasons…
- Fighting (top hot topics: financial issues and sexual intimacy)
- Children (differing parenting styles and views)
- Communication Issues
- Mood Disorders
- Past Traumas
Also… couples go for premarital counseling and because they want to make a good marriage better.
Many couples fall into a cycle of disconnecting from one another which can stem from many different issues. As the deeper issues are left unaddressed, this disconnection cycle surfaces more frequently and the relationship quality quickly declines. Trusting your partner with your concerns becomes more difficult. Emotional distance increases. Partners feel like they are merely roommates living under the same roof and miles apart emotionally.
This cycle of disconnection continues until some sort of intervention happens.
What is needed is emotional connection!
Emotional connection bonds couples together. This rebonding take time and intention and oftentimes the help of a trained professional. A trained emotionally focused therapist can help the couple heal from their relational wounds and bruises and create or restore emotional safety and connection.
Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy helps couples with their unique wounds and bruises restore their emotional connection. If there never was an emotional connection to begin with, a trained therapist can help the couple build an emotional connection.
What does Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy look like?
Plan on committing to a minimum of 8-12 sessions in person or online.
Past traumas may increase sessions needed or indicate the need for individual sessions.
An Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy trained therapist will support you in creating and building a safe and secure emotional bond with your sweetheart.
