THE BENEFITS OF PROFESSIONAL INTERVENTION
June 03, 2018
Nobody likes the idea of going to a therapist, after all, we live in a time in which we are expected to excel in every aspect of our lives, including our relationships. However, when your relationship is taking strain and you are unsure of how to address your issues, couple’s therapy can be a great way to face your concerns head-on and find a sustainable way to regain the happy momentum that propelled you at the beginning of your romance.
THE BENEFITS OF COUPLES THERAPY
Therapists with a focus on relationship therapy, such as Kobus van der Merwe from Imago Relationship, are skilled at untangling the core issues at the root of floundering relationships. Booking a session with a qualified couple’s therapist has the following benefits:
IT OPENS COMMUNICATION CHANNELS
When couples fight, they are often unable to really hear each other. Each party is so wrapped up in their righteous indignation that they don’t actually listen to what the other is saying. Scheduling a few sessions to work through your problems with the guidance of a professional therapist will allow you to hash out your issues in a safe space where both you and your partner are allowed equal time to voice your concerns.
IT’S A TARGETED APPROACH TO RELATIONSHIP MAINTENANCE
Couple’s therapy gives you the tools to maintain a healthy relationship in the long run. By working with a professional counsellor you’ll establish mitigative routines and mechanisms you can return to when issues arise again later on.
IT PROVIDES A BLANK SLATE
When we try to resolve our issues on our own, it often ends up getting swept under the rug. Nothing is really resolved, but you let it go for the sake of getting on with things. Targeted couple’s therapy allows you to find the underlying cause of your problems and decide on a mutually beneficial solution. Once this has been achieved, you have a clean slate and a fresh start to rejuvenate that passionate romance you felt at the beginning of your relationship.
These are just a few of the benefits of couple’s therapy.
COUPLES COUNSELLING IN SANDTON
Relationships, like life, are dynamic and ever changing. In the past 15 years I have been privileged to work with many people who were brave enough to share with me what was working, and what was not working for them in their lives.
From a mentoring and counselling point of view this enabled me to rapidly identifying relational opportunities and risk; and to assist individuals and teams in finding practical constructive, pro-active and positive solutions, to excel in their personal and work relationships.
Just think, with the right support and guidance how much more can you achieve?
Precise external support can act as a catalyst by promoting positive outcomes at a rate which is much faster than you can achieve alone.

I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
