Marriage counseling at Take Charge, Inc. can be a great way to start the year off right with your partner and come together to set real expectations for your marriage. Marriage counseling works when both partners work together to compromise on many different things a marriage can encounter on any day.
Marriage is one of the most important relationships we will ever have, but it can also be one of the most complicated. Despite the fact that America is the most prosperous society, we face an epidemic of depression and anxiety based on emotional starvation. Couples often feel disconnected in their most important relationship … their marriage.
Do you have goals for your marriage? Many people have this misconception that once they get married, they will live happily ever after – on autopilot. The reality, however, is that marriage requires work and effort from you and your spouse. Love brings you together, but conscious, continuous effort makes your marriage a success. This is where marriage goals come in.
Goals should be set so you and your spouse can meet them easily. If possible, set up a date night once a week, once a month, or whenever possible. Terri Clinton Dichiser utilizes Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) to help couples reconnect with one another in marriage counseling. She uses couples counseling to help couples recognize the patterns they have established in their relationship and offers tools and strategies to break those patterns to create a renewed sense of safety and security with their spouse.
EFT research shows:
· More than 70% of couples turned their relationship around; from distressed – no matter how distressed – to happy in 15 – 20 sessions, and
· More than 90% of couples “significantly improved.”
· EFT is couples counseling therapy based on 20 years of clinical studies with proven results for couples in crisis. EFT couples counseling is based on therapy with your spouse in the safe environment of Terri’s office to help you create a haven of safety and strength in your marriage. Marriage based on a connection with your spouse that makes you stronger as an individual and in your marriage.
The most successful married couples cite friendship as a key ingredient of their long-term success. Work toward developing activities you enjoy and a safe emotional connection-this is the person you will turn to no matter what.
