Improve Your Relationship
Remember how fairy tale stories end with a: “and they lived happily ever after…”? This is what we all think will happen in a relationship but it is not always the outcome, and that’s okay! Love is a critical component in a relationship, but “love is never enough,” as Aaron Beck, one of the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) once said. In psychotherapy, we will explore what else do we need in order to live healthy and fulfilling relationships we deserve.
Psychotherapy can help you if you are:
Single, divorced, or widow
looking for a relationship but have issues with trust, sharing, “finding the right man or woman,” or don’t want to make the same mistakes you did with a former relationship/ marriage
You will learn to identify the difficulties, regulate emotions, find the right partner for you, explore how you unconsciously choose a partner who reflects past issues you need to work on, change disturbance with discomfort, and learn how you can communicate more effectively and feel better with yourself.
In a relationship/ marriage
You experience power struggle, communication problems, endless arguing and fights, or withdrawal and emptiness. Other issues might be crisis due to infidelity or outside of marriage affair.
In Couples Therapy, we can work on learning better ways to reconnect and feel heard and valued. In a case of a crisis, therapy can assist you to repair the trust and guide you through the process of healing. Your relationship is the focus. However, each partner is expected to focus on self-awareness and improvement.
Undergoing a separation or a divorce process
You are confused if to stay or leave the marriage, experience emotional pains, disappointment, grief, guilt, fear, anxiety or how to deal with the children. Sometimes you already made the decision but you want to finish the relationship respectfully in a way that allows you to be kind and respectful to one another.
Psychotherapy is usually done on an individual basis and you can learn about your strengths, giving you objective and rational perspectives and tools to deal with the new status, and to look at the divorce as an opportunity to grow up as a person (goodtherapy.org)
- Couple or individual psychotherapy is recommended as soon as you feel you can’t resolve the issues by yourself.
- The more you wait, the more anger, frustration, resentment, and mistrust will build and it will be more difficult to improve the relationship.
- Seeking counseling means that you want to take care of yourself and develop skills to overcome obstacles in your life.
- Usually, we meet once or twice a week for an hour or an hour and a half.
- Couples therapy is often a short-term therapy, but changes take time.
