If you are experiencing challenges in your marriage, Frances Brown Counselling counselling services in the West Vancouver area can provide the guidance needed to identify and resolve core and underlying issues that threaten the harmony in your relationship. A good marriage requires mutual commitment and shared goals. A licensed professional can assist you in rebuilding your relationship and make it as strong and loving as it once was.
Couples who have participated in premarital counselling have reported an increased harmony and satisfaction in their relationship and an improved ability to resolve problems. Although every marriage faces challenges at some point, couples who have acquired the skills that enable them to surmount marital difficulties report a more fulfilling and satisfying married life.
Many couples attempt to handle conflict and the delicate aspects of their relationship on their own. This often leads increased negativity when one or both partners feel criticized, defensive or unheard. The result is an increased breakdown in communication where many couples become further alienated from one another.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
When couples are caught in a repeating negative cycle of angry criticism and icy withdrawal that leaves partners feeling hurt and alone, EFT counselling can help change your despair into relief and hope, right from the first appointment. By tracking your current pattern of communication and exploring deeper, underlying emotions, unhealthy patterns of interaction gradually shift into a new dynamic that builds trust and safety, paving the way for intimacy to spark and happiness to grow!
