What if my partner will not come to counseling?

If you are having trouble in your relationship your partner or spouse and they do not wish to come to counseling with you, you can begin on your own.  Coming by your self can definitely make things better.  You are empowering your self to make positive changes.  Even if feels like an extra burden that you should be carrying the weight of the relationship.  You can get help.  It’s not unusual for one person to seek help within a relationship when the other person is hesitant or refuses to seek help at this time.  Many people are hesitant to come to therapy out of embarrassment or fear and shame.  Her partner may be afraid of being blamed or that something will get shaken up even more.  Still, if you come by yourself, find support for what you are going through and relief from the burden of your pain, then come to understand the dynamics and patterns in your relationship, you’re likely to feel a sense of relief and clarity which will make the counseling very worthwhile for you and your situation. Just by changing some communication issues on your own, may improve the dynamics with your partner as well.

When a relationship has ended or is having a difficult time it’s very stressful. The powerful integrative therapeutic environment and skills I can provide for you will help you reduce stress, sorrows and fears which are commonly stirred up when a relationship is not going well as well.
