You’re struggling, you’re unhappy, you have tried everything and nothing has made a difference.
You keep begging her to talk about the relationship, but she refuses. You have asked him to go to counseling, but he says it won’t help, he doesn’t “believe in” counseling, or he doesn’t want other people in his business.
Or you try to talk to your partner, but whenever you share your feelings, she blows up at you and tells you it’s your problem. She thinks it’s you are the one who needs to get yourself “fixed” for the relationship to get better.
Maybe you are not currently in a relationship, but you have had unsuccessful relationships in the past and want to change this pattern.
What we want you to know is that it takes two to create a relationship, but it only takes one to change it. If your partner or family member is willing to come in, that would be ideal, but if they don’t, all is not lost. A trained relationship expert can help you learn key strategies to bring change to your relationship.
Relationship Counseling for One can be very effective in any of the following scenarios:
** Please note that couples therapy with both partners present is FASTER and MORE EFFECTIVE than you coming in alone. We want to try everything we can to get your partner in with you from the beginning of counseling. Often this is successful when people are certain their spouses won’t join them. But sometime it isn’t. When it isn’t…
You don’t have to attend couples therapy or family therapy for things to get better. We are specifically trained to hear both sides of the relationship when only talking to one person, and in helping one part of a couple bring changes to the entire relationship. You will be surprised how effective it can be.
