Communication Counseling helps couples work through barriers which are preventing them from having effective communication. Mis-communication in relationships is the norm more than the exception. Mis-communication happens when the INTENT of a message is not matched with the IMPACT the message had on the receiver. All to often we communicate indirectly which creates mixed messages, confusion, and hurt in our relationships. With communication counseling we help you develop the following skills to communicate your needs and wants effectively and also to foster greater intimacy and understanding in your relationship. In addition to working on these skills listed below, we have also seen a lot of success with our couples with integrating schema therapy into couples counseling.
- Emotional Intelligence
- Thought Empathy and Feeling Empathy
- Disarming Technique for Conflicts
- Feeling Statements, e.g- When you did ______ I might of felt a little hurt or rejected. Instead of doing _________ could you try doing __________/
- Bibliotherapy: We have a list of 3-4 books that we highly recommend couples read in conjunction with communication counseling.
