Learn How To Have A Better Relationship

 

Anything You Can Do, We Can Do Better

What’s Couples Therapy?

Couples therapy, relationship therapy, marriage counseling; whatever name you want to give it, is never an experience you’re likely excited about. The concept of therapy is often fairly scary to couples, nothing is really going to change that potential dread before your first appointment, but knowing what to expect makes it a bit less daunting. This is something Simple Modern specializes in, and while every therapist is different, here’s what you can anticipate:

 

The Goals of Couples Therapy

When it comes to couples therapy we take a page from legendary marriage experts Drs. John and Julie Gottman. The goals of Simple Modern’s approach are to disarm conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.

 

The Tools of Couples Therapy

Map Your Love and Trust

How well do you know your partner’s inner psychological world, his or her history, worries, stresses, joys, and hopes? The love map charts all of this for you. This is the state that occurs when a person knows that his or her partner acts and thinks to maximize that person’s best interests and benefits, not just the partner’s own interests and benefits. Learn how to have your partner’s back.

Admiration & Atmosphere

The cure for contempt, this tool focuses on strengthening the amount of affection, appreciation and respect within a relationship. Learn how to create an atmosphere that encourages you to talk honestly about your hopes, values, convictions and dreams.

Responding & Perspectives

Learn how to clearly state your needs, and be aware of bids for connection and respond to your partner. The small moments of everyday life are actually the building blocks of relationship. The presence of a positive approach to problem-solving and repair attempts are what drive success.
