Relationship counseling involves various types of relationships like marriage, filial, siblings and so forth.
To be precise relationship counseling can help people involved in any kind of relationship to sort out their differences and get back to the happy days.
Relationship counseling is also extended to the professional front where employers and employees can sort out their differences which will benefit them as well as the organization.
Relationship counseling will enable you to have a happy relationship and make the most of it. It can not only mend your present relationships but also the baggage you are carrying from your past and prepare you for the future.
Any form of major conflict can be solved by a relationship counselor. Even if you are not experiencing any immediate relationship turmoil, you can come to a relationship counselor to seek advice on avoiding such conflicts that ruin your present and future.
What is Expected from Relationship Counseling
A relationship counselor will provide you with a caring and supportive environment which is required to discuss issues smoothly. The counselor will encourage you to speak about matters that are causing worries, tension and anxiety which are interfering with the relationship.
The relationship counselor will ask questions about the relationship and what the problems you are facing in it. Depending on the problem, the counseling sessions will be decided in terms of period and also presence of all the inflicted.
Relationship counseling can be done by visiting the counselor or over telephone. Online relationship counseling is also available at counseling centers. Relationship counseling actually focuses on solving communication problems.
Misinterpretation of words, body language creates misunderstanding and it aggravates the situation which leads to a rift in relationships. These can be cleared with the help of counseling. One of the most effective therapies is active listening because this is the aspect where most people fail.
Most people react before they listen to what the other person has to say. This creates major trouble in a relationship. Active listening helps in sorting problems by analyzing them. Another approach is Emotionally Focused Therapy which is used for close/intimate relationships.
In such relationships both the partners are emotionally dependent on each other and this dependence is the focus which helps partners to recognize and admit the fact that they are emotionally dependent on each other and look for support, protection and nurturing as one needed in childhood. This helps in removing the emotional barriers.
