Couples counseling helps you and your partner overcome relationship problems when you can’t resolve them yourselves.
Humans are naturally social and seek others’ company. Close relationships are essential for most people and often provide some of life’s greatest rewards. But every relationship goes through difficulties at times.
If both partners cooperate, communicate, and compromise, they’ll likely overcome these challenges. If you and your partner can’t connect and agree on a solution, couples counseling at Kente Therapy Space can help you deal with your problems and bring you together again.
Common problems that often require couples counseling include:
Couples counseling can also be beneficial before you encounter relationship difficulties. Many people find that having couples counseling before marriage provides them with the knowledge and understanding to deal with the challenges that might come up.
At Kente Therapy Space, Caroline offers a safe space for you to examine the problems in your relationship without judgment. She begins by assessing your relationship and learning about the difficulties involved. She then works with you to help you overcome these hurdles.
Caroline specializes in interpersonal communication and to remove relationship obstacles and enhance partnerships. Strong interpersonal skills enable you to manage conflict, build and maintain a healthy relationship, and improve intimacy. Skills Caroline teaches you include:
Communication skills include actively listening to others when they speak instead of thinking about what you plan to say next. You also learn how to respond to others thoughtfully, considering how your response will affect them.
Assertiveness means feeling confident enough to say no to others when necessary and ask for things you want or need. Being assertive doesn’t involve being unreasonable or aggressive — a trap many people fall into when trying to assert themselves.
Conflict is natural and unavoidable in relationships. Caroline teaches you conflict resolution skills to help you understand each other’s views and settle your differences together.
Anger management education involves recognizing anger and expressing it appropriately. This ensures that you’re better able to cope with emergencies, solve relationship challenges, and achieve your goals without losing your temper.
