Emerge Therapy

3 Steps to a Loving Relationship (2/3)

General

I know from my professional relationship with Nathan, we each have followed through our own journeys finding a style of working that we each are personally and professionally comfortable with.

For me, it was in taking up the practical challenge of recent developments in Transactional Analysis (what is Transactional Analysis) in my couple counselling work that brought together many loose ends of my practice. Specifically, putting into practice my commitments in establishing an equal relationship between couples and me; learning what worked best for them, hearing their stories and using tools from Transactional Analysis that could support them to create their own strategies and skills to emerge from conflict.

My focus as a couples counsellor is too help you as a couple develop mutual awareness of the strengths you both bring to the relationshop, and to build on your existing strengths to transform your experience as a couple.

On the way we make mental notes of the positive changes you are finding most personally meaningful, that you want to build on, as our focus is directed to opening up new possibilities in your relationship. This process also keeps you both, as a couple, in charge of the direction of your therapy.

Here are some examples of such positive changes:

  • We are taking up opportunities to be heard and encouraged to tell our stories of the relationship.
  • We are feeling confident to share our experiences and uncover our thoughts about our current relationship.
  • We are taking up opportunities to speak of and share those difficult moments when we feel locked in a ‘cycle of conflict’.
  • We are taking up opportunities to find our way to what it is we both want to talk through and change in our relationship.
  • There is a sense of direction and structure as our couple therapy journey unfolds which gives us both confidence and hope.
  • We are motivated to share and to agree on what it is we want within our relationship.
  • Our attention is directed to the existing positive aspects within our relationship.

Through considering and sharing your positive changes we keep evaluating what works best for you as you move through change and discuss the next steps in making this happen.

My next workshop takes place on Saturday 15th July, 1 – 4 pm, Leeds City Centre click the link below:
