Working in the helping industry has been a passion of mine for many years.
Helping others begin to understand more about themselves and how they operate adds value to their lives and validates my work.
Many couples come to their first session claiming to have communication problems.
But my observation is the vast majority of couples I see can actually communicate very well. The problem is with the perception of what their partner is saying to them. It seems the message they are receiving isn’t coming in clearly. They misperceive each other, assuming the other is being thoughtless or unkind or ignoring their needs. That is the real problem. Correct the perception and the relationship has a chance.
When we help couples see their own perception of their partner, and the interactional cycle that's been unconsciously created, they become better communicators, having gained some insight and compassion for the other. They can begin to move towards one another and fight for each other, instead of fighting against each other. There really is a simple approach to saving marriages and it works.
