Couples Therapy in Winston-Salem
Are you struggling in your relationship? Couples therapy can help you live a happier life together.
Relationships are difficult. Often couples find themselves frustrated, disconnected, and exhausted. Marriage/couples therapy can provide effective ways to improve and repair your relationship.
Repair and Reconnect
Research has shown that the lack of adequate repair following an argument is the biggest contributor to marital unhappiness and divorce. The first steps in improving a relationship during couples therapy is learning how to regulate emotions, stay calm, and use healthy communication skills to resolve problems. When partners repeatedly employ conflict avoidance or engage in power struggles, communication problems ensue; resentment builds, and repairs are never made. We'll help you work together to learn the skills necessary to have a happy, successful relationship.
By learning healthy ways to communicate, partners see an improved and renewed relationship as a result of couples counseling. It also provides a neutral viewpoint that relationships inherently lack. At Christopher John Counseling we will help you and your partner reconnect and repair the problems that you may be facing.
