Signs You Need To See A Marriage Counselor
1. When you aren’t talking.
In all honesty, many relationship challenges are simply challenges in communication. A therapist can help facilitate new ways to communicate with each other. Once contact has deteriorated, often it is hard to get it going back in the right direction.
2. When you’re talking, but it’s always negative.
Negative conversation can include anything that leaves one partner feeling judged, disregarded, shamed, insecure or wanting to withdraw from the conversation. Negative interaction also consists of the tone of discussion because it’s not always what you say, but how you say it. Negative communication can escalate into emotional abuse as well as non-verbal communication.
3. When you’re afraid to talk.
When it’s just too frightening even to bring problems up. This may range from money to sex or even annoying simple habits that are being blown out of proportion. The job of the therapist’s is to help a couple become clear about their problems and to assist them realize what they are indeed talking about.
