Whether the goal is to rebuild the relationship or transition peacefully out of the relationship, couple’s counselling can be useful. It’s helpful to view counseling as introspective look at the dynamic in the relationship. This means that most likely both parties are contributing to the problem somehow. The main emphasis will be on establishing a sense of safety before either party can attempt to feel 'heard'. Then the focus can shift to self-reflection in the dynamic, and how to inspire change in your partner, as opposed to forcing it. Finally, skills on communicating and creating positivity will be taught.
By taking this approach, the individuals will often see a more immediate shift in the overall dynamic. Using skills honed through helping thousands of people in relationships, and sharing perspectives from the top counsellors in the field, Glenn focuses on the couple’s potential and on their hope.
