As a therapist in Sheffield, I get lots of couples asking for counselling to sort out their relationships. They ask about marriage guidence or relationship therapy either way I can help them better relate to each other. Couples Counselling works like this. Both parties come to a session and I listen to each of their stories. I also ask them to listen to each other. I give them the tools to create a better dialogue so each person understands where the other is coming from.
This sounds pretty easy on the surface but as each couple has a history of mis-communication it can take a little while to get into the habit of listening and communicating in a new way.
How Couples Counselling Works
Most people listen not to the words and emotions behind the words but they listen for the gaps in between so they can jump in and say what they want to say. This is the quickest way to tell the other person that they have not being listening and that they have not been heard. So we have to create new fertile ground to sow the seeds of active listening.
