Ambivalent about your relationship?
Seeking support before giving up?
Difficulty expressing this to your partner?
Your therapist will assess your motivation to remain in the relationship, move toward separation or divorce or make a commitment to work on the relationship.
Within sessions (1-5) you and your partner will:
Meet as a couple and individually
Explore current relationship challenges
Understand your role within the relationship dynamics
Discover changes to improve the current climate of the relationship
Improve communication in discussing your motivation to work on these issues
Our therapists will not encourage which direction to take, and whatever the outcome, we will support you to identify the appropriate resources as you move forward to minimize the impact on you, your immediate and extended family.
Having thoughts of separation or divorce can be difficult to navigate alone. Perhaps one or both parties have experienced unexpressed emotions related to boundaries, loneliness, frustration, disappointment. Or at times are encounter difficulty addressing in effective communication, infidelity, financial stressors, ongoing conflict, issues with extended family or parenting.
Whether you've experienced one or a few of the above and are considering ending the relationship, Discernment Counseling can help provide clarity regarding the future of your relationship.
1-5 sessions can support parties toward one of three directions:
1) Keep the relationship as, no steps toward separation/divorce, and no desire to move work on the relationship through counseling
2) Move toward ending the relationship through separation or divorce
3) A decision to repair, restore and revitalize the relationship through an agreement to engage in Relationship and Marriage Counseling
