There is a misconception about couples counselling that suggests it can only be accessed in times of crisis. While it is true that couples do seek couples therapy to weather storms, deal with transitions, or improve communication, support through crisis is only one benefit of working with a qualified Couple’s Counsellor. In fact, spending time together with a Counsellor can go a long way towards strengthening a relationship in the long term.
Whether your relationship is new or long-established, chances are there is room for improvement, and an opportunity to enhance your connection or get back on track. Emotionally fulfilling relationships are key to mental and physical health; however, creating and maintaining a healthy couple relationship can be a challenge when faced with the push and pull of day-to-day life that can sometimes take its toll on even the healthiest of relationships. Taking time to reconnect, and to seek out the support and tools to be successful in that endeavor, can be both rewarding and satisfying.
The qualified Counsellors at The Counselling Group in Ottawa are experienced and able to help couples overcome the challenges that may arise in all types of intimate relationships. The Counselling Group Counsellors can help couples understand how unhealthy communication patterns impact relationships and provide an opportunity to develop new methods of communicating.
If your relationship is not as fulfilling as it could be, consider working with a Couples Counsellor to reconnect with your partner. If your relationship is happy and satisfying, work with a Counsellor to help you identify and maintain tools to keep it that way.
