Men and Women Can Communicate...

...we just need to learn how!  I have seen many couples recently and the main problem to overcome is the way in which they communicate.  By the end of the first session, it is patently obvious that they are very much in love with each other but are just feeling angry, tired and frustrated because they just cannot find a way to communicate what they are feeling to each other, what they need from each other and end up thinking that there is no future...wrong!
I strongly urge couples who are feeling this way to give couples counselling a try.  In my experience, women are quite keen to give this a try as generally speaking we women like to talk!  But please try to explain to your man/partner that it does not have to be a scary process, it's a good thing to help you both get back on track or even on a good track if you both feel that communication has always been a bit hit and miss and this way you can build a solid foundation for a happier future together.
Try coming for one session and see how you both feel afterwards.  I have found that women often feel relieved at finally being heard and men who are feeling misunderstood or criticised can feel appreciated.
