Marriage Course For Hurting Couples

Learn How To Improve Communication and Connection In Your Marriage

One of the most common concerns that lead people to seek marriage counseling or relationship counseling is:

Needing help with communication.

Take a look at your relationship. Explore the following:

  • How vulnerable are you with your partner?
  • How willing are you to say how you feel or to express a concern without feeling that it would be taken the wrong way?
  • Do you trust that your partner is completely open with you?
  • Do you feel like you are walking on eggs shells and struggling to speak your mind?

At times you find yourself in a relationship that just about everything is going well. Yet, when you dig just a little bit deeper you start to notice that there are a few things you are not sharing. Maybe you are not sharing that you need more help with the kids at home. Or, that you feel underappreciated.

Couples seek support with communication, not just to speak to each other. That would be far too simple. They seek support to learn how to break down walls that restrict vulnerability. When a person is vulnerable, they are able to say what they want without fear or worry that something negative will take place. The person is able to express their concern in a manner that allows them to feel a follow-up conversation will come after.

Take a closer look at your relationship. Consider how well you and your partner are doing in entering, navigating and exciting conversations.

Below is a video that shares tools for improving communication.

After watching the video, consider what you can apply to your relationship. As a relationship counselor, I encourage couples to actively find ways to improve their relationship. To strengthen whats working and identify ways to increase awareness of sustainability.

If you would a self-paced relationship course that can help you and your partner improve on what’s working and overcome negative hurtful challenges explore the Relationship Strengthening Course.
