Is your current relationship challenging? Do you ever feel like giving up? Here are a few reasons for this.
Relationships are complex and challenging.
In fact, every time you are in a relationship, you are vulnerable to get hurt. Therefore, trouble in relationship is inevitable and it hurts. It doesn’t matter if it happens in relationship with a loved one or with someone we don’t care about, if it is prolonged it can eat away at us, rob us of energy and joy, and compromise our self-worth.
Most relationships have a single weak point that the couples habitually fall into.
Your relationship may have a great foundation, but you find yourself struggle because of a one single weak point - a communication breakdown, a loss of passion or trust, a point of chronic disagreement.
Extraordinary relationships do not just happen.
Successful, passionate, lasting relationships do not just happen, or are the result of great luck and chemistry. Rather, they are CREATED! They require skills, love, focus, determination, and creativity. There are vital elements that determine the amount of fulfillment we have in our relational journeys.
Why be in Relationships?
The purpose of relationship is to enrich a human experience, to explore various parts of self and emotions, to magnify our need and connection with each other, and to have an opportunity to impact the world around us. We were never meant to do life alone. We interact with other human beings on various levels of our development: parents, friends, partners, lovers, coworkers, etc. The strategies you acquire in relationship therapy are the life skills that come in handy in any interaction you might have.
The good news, I love helping people have closer, more rewarding relationships with their loved ones and believe we can accomplish that together with the relationship tools I offer. I am here to offer you an objective clarity, identify barriers, gain skills to take your relationship to the level of the extraordinary you deserve.
The FOCUS in couple's therapy can be on the following:
The relationship work I offer is based on David Burn's 3 basic but powerful relationship rules:
Any relationship problem is 100% me and 100% you.
We unintentionally create the relationship dynamic that we’re complaining about.
We have a lot more power than we think.
Healing in relationship.
The healing can happen far more quickly than you think. In fact, you can reverse the years of bitterness and mistrust in a matter of a short time, but the work is intended to be hard and painful if you are willing to experience this kind of a miracle. It’s going to feel unfair and at times really uncomfortable, but you/each partner must be willing to solely focus on looking at your part, change how you come across, and let go of focusing on the other person’s errors. The price of intimacy is nearly always painful. If you are willing to roll up your sleeves, do the hard work, I can show you something truly amazing – something that will transform your life and relationship.
Are we suitable for Couple's therapy?
There are three requirements that are known to bring a great chance of success in couple's therapy:
The desire to get closer to the partner you are with. If you are contemplating if you should stay or leave the relationship, you are more suitable for an individual therapy.
Willing to focus solely on your part, fixing yourself, and how you come across in the relationship even if your part is only 1% of the problem. If you think it is all your partner's fault, you are more suitable for an individual therapy.
Understanding that it will be unfair and painful at times. Intimacy in relationship does come with a cost. If you are not willing to pay the cost - you are more suitable for an individual therapy.
Making relationship LAST.
"The only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not the place that you go to take." - Tony Robbins
