What to Expect and What not to Expect from Relationship Counselling?by BetterLYF Wellness Online Counselling Psychologist
Most people think of relationship counselling as when things get really bad and consider counselling when the relationship is at the edge of a breakup or divorce. But the reality is that no matter what situation you face in your relationship and how trivial a problem seems if it is making you and your partner feel distant you can take the help of a relationship counsellor to see things from a different angle and a fresh and healthy perspective.
Relationship counselling provides a couple with a caring, supportive and non-judgmental environment to discuss the challenges they are facing. A relationship counselling is a trained expert who helps you find a way through any problems you may be encountering in your relationships.
The very first step to help you through counselling is to identify and clarify the issues or concerns you are facing in your relationships. And on the way forward for both partners a counsellor will schedule a couple of counselling sessions with the gap of days or weeks depending on the severity of issues they want to address.
Both partners may not have the same goals always but for counselling to work they need to reach on establishing an agreement to help with the process of the therapy. The primary concern of counselling is to get the best possible and appropriate help you need to overcome your issues and make your bond stronger.
For some couples, counselling can only be a start in a longer process of discovering their relationship while others may need only a few sessions of counselling to get through a rough patch in the relationship. A couple can also discuss their expectations with their counsellor and get the clarity, so that in the end whatever conclusion they reach will not be disappointing.
A couple needs to understand that counselling does not work like a magic, and requires hard work, commitment and attention from both partners. Some couples may find the process leading to an improvement in their relationships while for others it may lead to separation and moving on apart. Delay in getting help can also be a reason that relationship counselling is not helping you.
In case you decide to stay apart or divorce you may experience different feelings as it may not be the outcome you expected.
In case of separation the counsellor can help you to process the pain and can offer support with the grieving process, so that with issues around what and when to tell other family members and children about what is happening. Even if you want to continue counselling with the hope to save the relationship when staying apart and do not want to confront each other, an online relationship counselling session allows you to connect with the therapist and your partner through audio or video conferencing.
