Relationship Counseling The Village

Individual and family counseling are therapy focused on more specific therapeutic activities, at Evanescence Counseling.  Whereas, relationship counseling is directed towards the relational interactions and communications of two distinct individuals.  We are often asked by The Village clients, does relationship counselling work?  What are the likelihood counseling sessions save a marriage that is illustrated by constant negative arguing? The truth, it takes two to make a relationship work, both parties must be willing participants.  What if the couple already despises each other’s company?  That is up to the willingness of both parties.  The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists report a 98 percent success rate in terms of satisfied couples who attend relationship counseling sessions.  Open-mindedness is the recommended suggestion, for starting with relationship counseling.  Additionally, a willingness to listen to the other partner. Aside from those two big success driving factors, there are four other lessons that are apparent among the couples studied.

  • The first few visits are informational – Major conflict should not be expected. Therefore, stay open minded. A simple question and answer session will allow the counselor to ask both partners to explain their history. This important step allows for the establishment of a counseling foundation.
  • It’s not all about “Uh huh” and “Tell me why you feel that way.” – this is a time to dig deep and open up to your partner.
  • This is not about he said, she said. – No winner is present in a game of he said, she said. We do not recommend blaming and victimization.
  • Relationship counselling is focused on developing a new relationship with each other and not continuing on with the current status quo.
