Couples therapy in Oslo - is there a point? | Marriage counselling
It is common for one partner to be ambivalent to seeking out couple therapy.
There is only one way to find out if couple therapy can actually help you and your partner.
Since couple therapy is of proven benefit to many couples, it seems reasonable to give it a try. Ambivalence to the process is something we can discuss openly in the first session.
You will quickly get a sense of if this is something worth pursuing further.
Couples therapy in Oslo - how does it work? |Marriage counselling
We will begin by clarifying goals and aspirations for your relationship, in order to create common understanding of the process.
Then we will map out the dynamics that are holding you back from the connection you want, before we devise strategies to change the negative patterns you may be locked in.
With couple therapy we often see that couples end up in self-reinforcing patterns and that beginning to acknowledge and break these automated responses often is of immediate benefit.
After a while, as we manage to change the worn out record that has been playing, there often comes a phase where you can gain a deeper understanding of each other.
Couple therapy at its best makes it possible to not only find your way back to each other, but also to rediscover each other anew. This is why couple counseling can be so beneficial.
Couples therapists - typical relationship challenges
Many people who seek out couple therapy do it a little too late, after the problems have developed into fairly cemented patterns.
There are so many perfectly normal psychological traps you can end up in! Life is sometimes hard, and relationships are no exception.
Often you can end up with laying the blame for the difficulties on your partner.
Or you get trapped in the pattern and relate to each other in ways that mutually reinforce negative spirals.
A crisis within a relationship is often the proverbial straw that is needed to begin a constructive process to address relationship issues that have often developed over longer periods.
It is not uncommon for such crises to arise in conjunction with transitional periods, when one partner is considering separation or with situations of infidelity.
Couple therapy in situations of infidelity, separation/divorce and transitional periods
After infidelity, it is about how to move on from the infidelity, find forgiveness and reestablish trust. This often requires a lot from both partners.
In relation to separation or divorce, it is often challenging that one partner may have come much further in the process than the other.
This has often built up over a longer period of time. Often new things occur when both partners are updated concerning the inner workings of the other.
In the many transitional periods of life, the established patterns of a relationship are often challenged.
This can be utilized in a positive way.
Crises and changes are often uncomfortable, but they also represent a great potential for change and development.
At Psykologvirke we will do our best to aid you in using the relevant crisis as constructively as possible.
In some cases, this involves helping the couple through a separation in the quickest and healthiest way possible.
