Women's many roles places unique demands upon her at various stages of her life. A woman may need assistance from a counselor that has specialized skills in listening and solution building to help her navigating these life challenges.
All in the Family Counselling understands these challenges and provides an accepting non-judgmental place for women to explore, heal and grow. Counselling can provide a safe, secure space to explore and evaluate what you want for yourself and how to get it. Getting help for yourself is a sign of strength and courage to give yourself the life you want to live.
Saving Your Marriage- Even if your Spouse doesn't want to come
Are you concerned about your marriage but your spouse doesn't want to attend counselling? You don't need to make improving or even saving your marriage conditional on your spouse attending. You have 100% control over your half of the relationship and by learning how to become more effective in your behavior, your communication and your choices, you can create a change in your relationship even without your spouse attending 1 session.
Don't make counselling another power struggle between you and your spouse. If you are really concerned about your marriage, you can make a difference and you don't need your partner to be there. In fact, forcing them to come probably won't work anyway. If they are not ready they are not ready, that doesn't mean you can't make things better by engaging in counselling services.
We often help women learn more effective way to engage their husband and by the wife changing her behavior, she ends up getting the reactions she wants from her partner. Once they see engaging them differently they often come voluntarily.
Counselling is a not a punishment or about who is at fault. Instead, it is about learning more effective ways so that both people can get their needs and wants met. There is no need to delay improving your marriage just because your spouse doesn't want to come.. Read our article: Marriage counselling- Going it solo
