When was the last time you had a real conversation with your partner?
Many couples feel a sense of trepidation when they begin therapy together. There can be many reasons for this, but the most pressing is often the most simple. When you sit down together with a therapist, you are actually going to have to talk to each other, and you have nearly forgotten how.
If you have been not talking to your partner for days, weeks, or even months, you are not alone. Many couples reach this stage before they decide to reach out for help.
You might not know when it started, but you and the person you love may having been growing steadily further apart. The pain of being together, but separate at the same time can be almost too much to bear. To avoid the oppressive silence, you may have tried avoiding each other, but that only makes it harder when you are together. Not talking becomes a vicious cycle.
How couples therapy gets you talking again
In my therapy, you will learn to begin communicating anew with the one you love. In a safe, supportive environment you can begin to express yourself, and open up to your partner. If you are used to not talking, articulating your feelings can be difficult at first. As you learn to communicate, however, you will find it more and more rewarding. During sessions you will open a dialogue and proceed step by step to the point where you can talk to each other from the heart.
