Patterns of communication and unresolved conflict.
Couples counselling differs from individual counselling in that the relationship is considered to be the client. Patterns of communication are explored in a non-pathologizing way, discovering underlying emotions that fuel negative interactions. It offers the opportunity to process unresolved hurts and betrayals, making way for a more secure bond. To allow for more productive communication, skills can be developed, restoring a sense of affection and gratitude towards one another.
Research shows that strong relationship bonds, characterized by a secure attachment style can sometimes act as a buffer against the stresses of life. Couples counselling aims to develop bonds through restructuring how couples interact. In couples counselling, care is taken to avoid siding with one partner, where equal involvement builds connection to discover and overcome barriers.
