What to expect from couples counselling at Star Point Counseling Center in Tampa Fl, and Brandon Fl.
Counsellors in Tampa Fl, and Brandon Fl, will work in different ways, depending on their training and the model they follow. But it is likely that you have an experience which will include:
Identifying what attracted you to each other.
Understanding your differences, and how this plays out in your relationship. Differences can be useful or feel like a problem.
Help identify differences or problems that might not have a resolution, such as wanting or not wanting children. Supporting you as you recognise whether this might be a ‘deal breaker’.
Recognising the things that work well, as well as the things that are not so good.
Learning about your attachment patterns, (whether you have a tendency to need reassurance and recognition or whether you avoid intimacy and dependency).
Identifying cycles of behaviour.
Understanding emotional regulation, and the consequences of reacting from a heightened emotion versus responding from a calmer mood.
Improving how to communicate.
Clarifying whether you want to stay in the relationship (discernment counselling).
Unlike individual therapy, you are more likely to be given tasks/homework to consider between sessions.
