Everything was so exciting when you first got married. You remember those honeymoon days. But then, the newness wore off. You both grew and changed. Things are so different now, and those happy days seem like a distant past.
Lately, you’ve started having more arguments. And your marriage doesn’t look like you want. You can feel yourselves growing apart, and you know now is the time to come back together and save this relationship.
Marriage Counseling Can Help
Marriage counseling can be helpful for small problems or significant issues. Therapy helps you and your partner; you each feel valued, heard, and connected.
We provide a supportive environment to help both you and your partner express wants and needs effectively. Build a relationship full of love and kindness. Let’s improve your relationship with each other for the long haul.
Honest communication helps to bring clarity, understanding, and healing with your partner.
When both partners have the right tools, understanding, and a caring approach, many problems may disappear. Problems become manageable, validation and openness increase. Mature communication paves the way for a calmer, happier relationship and the healthiest way forward together.
Emotionally Focused Therapy comes from research about adult love and attachment. EFT helps couples to attune to hear and now and become of their negative interaction cycles. This experiential approach allows couples to make changes in the present moment. They become more aware of each other’s feelings and build safe bonds with each other. There are three stages of EFT:
The couple will see and understand what is happening in their relationship. This includes seeing how problems relate or come from insecurities and unmet needs
The couple discusses their fears in the relationship, using language that reduces defensiveness. They learn to turn toward each other. Discuss their needs and they become more open and responsive to each other.
The therapist assists clients in creating new patterns of communication. The couple learns to use new skills outside the session
If EFT interests you and your partner, request an appointment with Angelia Worley. Angelia finished the EFT externship. She is working on completing the extensive Core Skills training towards certification. Couples will be recorded for the purpose of supervision and training.
