Couples therapy is never a person’s favorite thing to do, because it means facing fears and working out plans and compromises, and of course, most of us would rather be doing something else. Couples therapy means making an effort to make a relationship work, and most frightening of all, it means change.
The good news is that it’s worth it. Couples who were barely hanging on to their relationship manage to resuscitate it and begin a new and joyful life together. There are no easy fixes, but no one ever said having a life long relationship was going to be easy. The question is, can and will you make the effort and do the work necessary to bring life back into your relationship, or bring those qualities to the relationship for the first time?I explain to couples that if both partners are involved and engaged in the process of creating positive relational change that they will see progress. I approach working with couples from a perspective of rebuilding that encompasses stages: communication skills leading into healthy conflict resolution, defining and rebuilding an emotional connection, working on relational friendship, and lastly an area that most couples want to begin with improving intimacy and affection. It will take time to work through each phase of the rebuilding process similar to the time two individuals created negative relationship patterns. Reassuring and addressing that two people who are willing to accept their own addition to the relational challenges are needed in the journey or relationship repair.I disclose to couples that if a partner cannot gracefully accept constructive criticism and behavioral observations meant to help them, and the relationship then I advise the partner to work on their individual therapy and personal growth process. I am gentle and respectful throughout the process, but I see my role as a couples therapist to nudge individuals toward emotional and relational health, and I need both partners to be open to that without taking the process personally. In the end its up to the individuals in the marriage to take responsibility for their motivation and for doing the work to turn the marriage around.
Ask not what your relationship can do for you, ask what YOU can do for your relationship…
I feel it necessary to tell couples that couples therapy will most likely not be successful if a couple refuses to approach the process with a humble heart. A person with a humble heart approaches therapy with an attitude of “What I can I do to change?” rather than finger-pointing. It takes two to mess up a relationship, believe me, not just one, and I need two people who are willing to accept their own 100% of it. If you cannot gracefully accept constructive criticism and behavioral observations meant to help you, then please do not come in. Don’t worry, I am gentle and respectful throughout the process, BUT, my job is to nudge you toward emotional and relational health, and I need you to be open to that without taking the process personally. If you feel you are indeed too sensitive to look within, then come in by yourself and let’s do some work to heal those raw nerves. No doubt those same sensitive spots that make you dread therapy are the same ones that are hurting your relationship. See you soon, I hope!
