Relationship Counseling OKC
“I have one major rule: Everybody is right. More specifically, everybody — including me — has some important pieces of truth, and all of those pieces need to be honored, cherished, and included in a more gracious, spacious, and compassionate embrace.”
― Ken Wilber
When is relationship counseling necessary or beneficial?
Relationship counseling in Oklahoma City is beneficial anytime there are challenges in a relationship which must introduce a third party (myself) in order to remediate the situation. Relationship counseling is a great thing to pursue if you feel strongly about somebody but you are having issues with communication, domestic violence, verbal abuse or maybe you are just not on the same page anymore.
What can I expect from relationship counseling at Inner Treasures Counseling OKC?
Couples, for starters, your relationship is important to you or you would not be seeking counseling. We will start with that positive premise and go from there. We will begin with a written activity that allows each of you to state what you believe to be the issues. You will then be asked how YOU contribute to the issues. The rest of the activity focuses on the positives and what you want the ultimate outcome of counseling to be.
My girlfriend and I have a child. Is relationship counseling right for our situation?
Counseling is definitely a good idea but you may look at family counseling as a more realistic alternative since you have a child involved in the situation. My approach is very similar but there are differences involved anytime children are in the picture.
If my boyfriend / girlfriend and I already need counseling and are not even engaged, is there even a point?
Yes! Since you are even considering relationship counseling as an option it means that you care about each other enough to pursue a means of overcoming a relationship hurdle. Counseling is a very healthy thing to do and you will find that bringing a third party (myself) into the situation can definitely make a difference in the relationship dynamics and communication overall.
