Difficulties in a partnership can cause distress, disappointment, guilt, rejection or loneliness. Increasingly, couples are seeking counselling as a means of improving or rescuing their relationship.
The purpose of Couples Therapy is to help you stay together as a couple unless you expressly wish to separate, in which case, couples counselling can help you to do that more amicably. In most cases, there is a way forward with Couples Counselling but it requires an effort on both parts and an acceptance that it can be a long and difficult process.
A Couples Counsellor can take on a number of different roles during the counselling process. They may act as facilitator, mediator, container and/or observer. Couples counsellors work to support you as a couple and will point out patterns and modes of communication over the course of their observations. Couples therapists often encourage each of you to take responsibility for your own choices and actions. Above all, the therapist, rather than sorting out the issues for you, will help you in the way you go about sorting the issues.
